Future Feature - Feedback & Discussion, 'Find Connections - Advanced Search'


Starting this fall, federal Gateway users will be able to make valuable new connections on the Gateway using an Advanced People Search in Community.

Here is a design concept for Connections Finder - Advanced Search.   On this screen, you can make new valuable connections in searching by agency, areas of knowledge or experience, categories they procure in, solutions they manage or have used, and certifications. 

Federal users- we'd like your input! Here are our questions:

  1. There are help bubbles with guiding text beside 'Knowledge / Experience' , 'Associated Categories' and 'Associated Solutions'
    • Do these guiding texts help to clarify what you might search for in these areas?
    • After reading the guiding text, are any of these items still confusing to you?
    • Do you have recomendations for more helpful examples of 'Knowledge & Experience'?
  2. Consider a time when you needed to find a POC or some advice on an acquisition project.
    • What Knowledge & Experience areas would you search for to find that valuable new connection?
    • What Knowledge & Experience areas would you add to your own profile?
  3. Is there anything you would like to search by that we should add?
  4. What would motivate you to enter all of these items into your own profile so others could find & connect with you?
    • Take the poll in the right margins of the Gateway Interact home page and let us know!
    • Are there any items here you would never add to your profile?
