Go to Networks and select ‘Create a New Network’. Follow the steps to name your Network and give a short description. You can customise the settings for Location, decide whether users need to request to join and whether members are visible to each other in Nearby. Then choose ‘Add Network’ (mobile) or ‘Create’ (web).
As an Admin, you can design and manage the Network so it’s tailored exactly to your, and your organisation’s, needs. You can:
On the Network page, tap the section that shows the number of Network Admins. You can add or remove other Admins, or remove yourself as an Admin. A Network must have at least one Admin.
Administrators can use Kalido to broadcast important messages to the whole community simultaneously. Our analytics can show Admins what members are looking for in different geographies and get a true picture of member activities.
We are building a whole range of analytics to measure engagement…coming to Kalido soon.
We don’t offer a white label version of Kalido as we’d have to charge Network owners for customised software support, design, and maintenance. Instead, all Networks are fully customisable, so you can add your organisation’s branding and encourage members to brand their own Profiles to align with your organisation. You can make your spaces on Kalido very much your own.
Later in 2020, this will be changed so that you’ll see the organisation on your Profile, but won’t automatically join its Network or be made an Admin.
Yes, you can add a Location to your Network and make it visible to Network members. This can be useful for setting up meetings. For example, if this is your organisation’s Network, you can add your office Location which means Network members using Nearby can discover that they’re in the same area and can drop by for a meeting – a really useful Opportunity that may not have been discovered without Nearby.
You’ll no longer have access to its Chats, Channels, broadcast messages, or automatic connections to its members. But any connections that you’ve added to your Personal Network will still be there – and it’s a great way to stay in touch with former colleagues if either of you leave your organisation’s Network.
There are also still plenty of Opportunities for you on Kalido, both through the connections in your Personal Network, your new organisation’s Network if you have one, and new Networks that Kalido will suggest for you and that you can search for and explore in the Networks tab.
We also encourage organisations to create alumni Networks to help make sure former colleagues can still keep in touch, and that the organisation continues to benefit from all the Opportunities their former Network members can provide for years to come.
