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.
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.
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.
Civic Engagement Opportunities
Awesome! All opportunities are shared through the “Civic Engagement Opportunities” group. For opportunities with a set date and time, just go to the group, open up the calendar tab and scroll down to create a new event. Don’t forget to include who, what, when, and where. Click “Create Event” and you’re done!
All opportunities are shared through the “Civic Engagement Opportunities” group. For ongoing opportunities or ones without a set date, just go to the group, open up the forums tab and create a new post. Don’t forget to include who, what, when, and where. Click “Submit” and you’re done!
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!
