Getting Started

I’m having trouble logging in…

Always use your UVM ID to log in.

If you’ve forgotten your password, just click the “Lost Password” link. You’ll be taken to a login screen, where you have to click “Lost Password” again. (Sorry, we’re working on that!) Enter your UVM ID. You’ll get a message to the email address on your account. By default, this is your UVM email address.

How do I edit my profile or profile picture?

Easy! Once you have logged in to Dewey Doings, just click on “Profile” under your name in the right sidebar.

From your profile page, you can select the “Edit” button. Your profile has different sections:

  • Basic Info
  • Civic Engagement
  • More About Me

Be sure to update all of them by clicking the appropriate button and saving each time.

To change your profile picture, select “Change Avatar.” If you get an error message, it’s probably because the image is too large. Try a smaller one and try again.

How do I change my email notification settings?

Once you are logged in, click on “Settings” under your name in the right sidebar.

If you’d like to change the email address that notifications from Dewey Doings are sent to, you can do that here. Just make sure it is one that you check on a regular basis so you don’t miss any important information. (Please note that you will still log in using your UVM ID.)

After you have finished with the “General” settings, click on the “Notifications” button. You have full control over your notification settings – adjust them to whatever makes the most sense to you and hit “Save Changes.”

You can follow the link under “Individual Group Email Settings” to adjust how often you receive updates from the groups you are in.

Groups

What exactly are groups?

Groups are basically a way to organize information, how it gets shared, and who it gets shared with. We use it to help organize our seminars and share info about Dewey House news and civic engagement opportunities.

They’re also a great way to organize around a certain issue or plan your own project. Each group can have its own calendar, discussion area, document sharing, project and task management, and more. You can invite others to join your group and even choose between making it completely private, public, or in between.

There are a lot of possibilities… Make groups work for you!
