New Functionality

I recently attended two conferences on young alumni relations where we learned a great amount of information on how to connect to different generations of alumni. We also listened to several organizations who told us about their needs in online communities. Through these and other discussions the Alumni Channel is going be looking into some of these ideas in 2008:

  • Event management (rsvp, participant lists, payment)
  • Photo galleries
  • Enhanced e-mail tracking (sent and opened statistics)
  • Additional contact information data points
  • Segmented reporting and e-mail blasts
  • Online networking and mentoring
  • More detailed reports
  • Segmentation by affinity groups / student organizations
  • Featured members
