How to Maximize Member Dashboards in Your Association's Online Community

Posted by Victor Chien on Jun 28, 2017 3:00:00 PM


After hearing your feedback, we have worked night and day to bring some exciting enhancements to Breezio. Below are some of the new features that we have been working on for you and your members!

The Dashboard

When your members login to your community they need the most relevant, personalized information at their fingertips; weather that’s the presentation from your latest seminar or keeping track of upcoming events. With the new Dashboard we now we make it easy for your members to access all the information that they need in one place. A trending posts feed provides the latest content, and The “Happening now!” feature surfaces the live trending content and what other members are reading and discussing at that very moment on your online community. Custom HTML let’s you post announcements or “things to do” for your members. By increasing the visibility of your activities and events, the dashboard will help you spur greater member engagement and ultimately strengthen your online community with a more personalized member experience.



Enhancing the User Profile

Your organization’s vast collection of personal profiles places an assortment of curated information on your members beneath your fingertips. However, these personal profiles often do not paint the full picture of each and every one of your members.

In response, we have revamped our profile and member directory module with a number of new capabilities. First, you can now have multiple profile types; such as member profiles & company profiles. We’ve added more custom fields so you can define what’s important to your association. Members can also now upload their resumes directly on their personal profiles, add video, earn and display badges, and more. Videos are a great way for them to showcase projects, their elevator pitch and give a more personal introduction of themselves. With our new micro-badges they can showcase any achievements they have earned within your online community, or other open badges they’ve earned. With this level of profile customization, your members are able to give you and their peers a better picture of who they are - forming a stronger and more personalized online community.


Collaborative Learning

Brandon Hall Learning Technology Study 2016 revealed that improving user experience for learners is a critical reason for organizations looking to switch their platforms.The study also recognized that the top priority for organizations in 2017 is to invest in social and collaborative tools to enhance their learning environments.

We take this seriously since we believe that the underlining reason for all engagement is either learning or teaching. We’ve enhanced our eLearning module with better reporting tools and several new integrations. There is no need to integrate your LMS w/ your community when it’s one in the same. With our collaborative learning module we’ve combined the best of formal and informal learning in one platform. We’ve put the learner experience first to ensure that your members can learn, share and collaborate seamlessly around course material. You can also now award badges or digital certificates for completion of your eLearning.


Job Posting

Sarah Sladek, CEO XYZ University2017 put it best during her keynote at the Associations World Congress, “Solve the workforce crisis, and your association will become the most valued resource in its community and industry.” We’re here to help you make that happen & turn your community into a talent marketplace. 70% of jobs are acquired through your network, so what better network to optimize for your member’s careers than the one you provide through your community. That’s why we decided to rething your standard jobs board & Breezio-ize it! Job postings in Breezio let your members post comments and questions for the employer, recruiters can schedule live chat’s with perspective candidates, assign pre-requisites to the job such as digital badges, eLearning or other association sponsored educational programs. How awesome is that. What’s more, the required skill tags assigned to job postings sync directly to the skills tags on member profiles which helps your employers quickly and easily find members who match & gives your members notifications when new jobs match their profile. With this new module we’re helping our Association customers to be more of a partner in their member’s career paths, and bring better workforce solutions to the industries they serve.



With Breezio’s Notification Center, get real time updates of anything you’ve missed, and tailor your settings to get an email digest of all the reminders you need. Don’t bother with paper fliers and messy message boards, use Breezio events in coordination with our Notification feature to send alerts about important meet-ups to your groups, or schedule online events with individual people. Notify allows portal admins to send messages about an organization or post to all members, members of an organization, or even single out specific users by name. With Breezio you will never miss out on what matters most in your community.


We hope that you’re as excited as we are for these enhancements that we’re continuing to build into the Breezio platform for you.

Breezio strives to be an association’s strategic partner and trusted adviser to guide organizations through their digital evolution of member engagement. For instance, how do you create a digital version of your membership journey that manifests across the online community? Commencing from that question, we co-create and develop real solutions, with real input from ALL of the customers we support.

If you’re looking for solutions to solve your evolving member engagement goals, we hope you’ll look to Breezio as a trusted partner. Contact us today to learn more.
