How do I submit a class note?
On the left menu, choose Class Notes - Submit. You can then submit a class note based on a number of categories. U-Knight will automatically create a class note based on the information you provide. You can edit this text as you like and then submit. Your class note will be reviewed by the alumni staff and approved shortly thereafter.
How do I view class notes?
The most recent class notes always appear on the My Alumni Page after logging in. Class Notes - Read contains a complete listing of class notes with the most recent at the top and by type of update farther down the page.
Do class notes automatically appear in the scene?
By submitting your class note through U-Knight, you are giving the Geneseo Alumni office permission to publish it in the Scene, however, submission is not a guarantee of publishing and is dependent on how much space is available in the magazine and the volume of submissions recieved.
How do I submit the news of the passing of an alum?
What if I search for my name and it doesn't come up?
What if I don't remember my GID Number?
You can use our GID lookup tool. The site is completely secure, but if you are uncomfortable giving your information online, other options are available below.
You can locate it on the back of your Alumni Scene magazine, in the mailing label. Its the first 8 numbers of the numeric code, so don't include the 9th one!
If this still doesn't work, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send your GID back via email or call us at 585-245-5506 and we can provide it over the phone.
Can I change my username or password once registered?
To change your password use My U-Knight Settings, located on the left navigation menu.
You can also request your user name and password if you have forgotten or misplaced it by emailing email@example.com.
You can only change your user name by having your profile de-registered and completing the registration process again. To do so simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other registration issues?
Visit our registration help site.
What event registration benefits do I get from being a U-Knight member?
Easy forms - your information is already filled out when you open the form, saving you time.
Order tracking - U-Knight members can view all of their event registrations and modify their registration on their own instead of waiting for the alumni office to manually process it.
Can I only search for jobs that have been posted by Genese alumni?
No - membershup in U-Knight gives you access to all the job postings for ALL of the online alumni communities in the Harris Connect network, comprising hundreds of schools and thousands of postings. To see the entire job databse, Click Search Jobs and under the 'find postings from' drop down choose: Other Institutions in the Network.
What is a business listing and how do I create one?
To create a business listing, choose business directory and then create a business directory listing.
How do I post a job listing?
Use the post a job tool on the sidebar and fill in the required fields, there are some fields that are available for use that are not required.
You can blind posting by checking the 'hide company information' box.
How can I search for a candidate based on a certain criteria?
Under the post a resume section use the search resumes option which allows you to enter a keyword and search all resumes that have been uploaded in the community.
What is permanent e-mail forwarding?
How do I acquire or modify my permanent email?
Select Permanent Email. You will need to provide an active email - this will enable emails sent to your Geneseo email address to automatically forward to this account. Be sure that the box is checked, and click Update Forwarding Info. To change your permanent e-mail you will need to send an e-mail to email@example.com and let us know what you'd like it changed to - unfortunately its not currently possible to change that yourself.
What kind of emails will I receive?
How do I find out more information?
Is there a way to disable e-mail forwarding?
E-mail forwarding is disabled by default, but if you want to de-activate it later, you can. Choose the Permanent Email option. Once there check the 'disable my forwarding email until further notice' option.
What if I search for someone and it returns no results?
If you cannot find someone who you know for certain is an alum please contact the alumni office at (585) 245-5506 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While our records are good, they are not perfect, and we appreciate any corrections or updates that you may have for your own or someone else'sinformation inconsistencies. In addition, there are some alumni who have requested to be confidential, and therefore they will not show up in any search results.
What if I search and it tells me that I have too many results to display?
Why can't I get a complete list of contact information from the search results?
U-Knight is very intentionally designed as a one-to-one networking tool, with measures in place to respect the privacy of our users. No phone numbers are available, and e-mail addresses are masked to prevent unwanted additions to marketing lists. The Geneseo Alumni office does not provide alumni contact lists unless the alum is serving in the capacity of official business such as reunion class leader, or event/volunteer coordinator.
If you are an organizer for a specific Geneseo affinity group and would like to use U-Knight to make sure both your and our contact lists are up to date, please contact us at email@example.com or call 585-245-5506.
Why isn't my group or organization one of the choices?
There are many clubs and organizations that do not have any, or have very few (<5) people tagged as members. If you cannot find the group you are interested in please do two things: go to your profile and write in your affinities in the clubs and organizations section, and also email firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are enough records tagged with a particular group we will add it to the searchable list. We are working at making sure all groups are represented, and appreciate any updates on clubs, sports, and groups you were a part of, as this type of information makes U-Knight that much more useful to everyone!
