Waynflete Connect FAQ
WHAT IS WAYNFLETE CONNECT?
Waynflete Connect is an online platform that brings Waynflete alumni together on a single network for easy searching and connecting. It allows alums to post jobs and internships and offer their support to the community if they are willing to help/mentor others.
WHAT CAN I DO ON WAYNFLETE CONNECT?
Waynflete Connect makes it easy to capitalize on the benefits of being part of the extended Waynflete network.
Directory: Find old friends, make new connections—professional or personal—and network with other Waynflete alumni in similar (or different) fields.
Your profile: Make updates to your contact and employment information when they change, and share updates with the rest of the Waynflete alumni network about projects you’re currently involved in.
Jobs and opportunities: Find and share job openings and other opportunities such as internships.
Knowledge sharing: Volunteer to be a mentor to other alumni or search for alumni who can help you with career advice and information.

Messaging: Receive and send messages to other alumni through the platform, by email, or through LinkedIn or Facebook.
Special interests: Follow or start a special interest page to bring together Waynflete alumni who have a common goal or interest.
IS THIS JUST ANOTHER SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNEL?
No. Waynflete Connect does not replace our social media channels and, in fact, it actually pulls Waynflete Facebook and Twitter feeds into the site. It’s different from social media because it enables you to find, search, and connect with the Waynflete alumni network quickly and easily. You can also connect it to your LinkedIn profile, which will pull in your job and education history from that page.
WHAT ALUMNI ARE PART OF WAYNFLETE CONNECT?
You’ll find the entire Waynflete alumni community at your fingertips—all alumni for whom we have an email address will be invited to join the site. If you know a Waynflete alum who is not active on Waynflete Connect, please encourage them to join the site!
HOW SECURE IS WAYNFLETE CONNECT?
The platform is a closed network accessible only by individuals pre-approved by the Alumni Relations Office. Please be aware that information you share will be viewable by everyone on the platform and Waynflete has no control over how members of the site may use the information.
HOW CAN I ACCESS THE PLATFORM?
For now, you can access it on your desktop computer. A Waynflete Connect App will be available soon. Stay tuned.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Register here by creating a username and password (we suggest registering through LinkedIn, as it is the quickest and easiest). Follow the step-by-step instructions to add the relevant information to your profile. If you happen to register with an email address that we do not have in our records, we will need to approve your request to join manually (which we will do, just bear with us!). Once you’re registered, post a message to say hello and introduce yourself, upload photos, browse to find people you know, and invite other alumni by using the ‘invite alumni’ arrow on the upper right hand side of your screen.
I CAN’T FIND MY COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY IN THE DROP DOWN MENU?
I MADE A MISTAKE WHEN REGISTERING. HOW DO I UPDATE MY PROFILE?
It’s simple. Just follow these steps:
Step 1: Log into Waynflete Connect and click on your profile dropdown (tab on upper right)
Step 2: In the dropdown, click on the tab that says ‘Edit profile’
Step 3: You are now on the profile page. Now, you can edit your profile picture, contact information, college or university information, graduation year, field of interest, experience, and more.
Step 4: After updating, click the dark green ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the page.
I CAN’T LOG IN. HELP!
If you’ve forgotten your password, use the ‘forgotten your password’ link to reset a new password. If you are sure you have the right username and password, then possibly you’ve changed the email address that the system is linked to. If you change your email address in your profile, it might affect your login details. Contact for assistance.
