5. Next, complete your profile, which makes up your group's online directory. Click Complete Profile.

Add your school (under Join schools) if your school has already joined HEARD. A school group that has joined HEARD will be turned private. And the admin will be contacted to approve your request.


6. Add your real full name and photo. This helps people easily identify everyone in the community.

Add as little or as much contact info, like phone and address and make your email visible or not. Everyone will be able to reach you even if you don't disclose that info.


Now adjust your notification settings. You'll get emails notifying you about all the activity happening in your group. You can change the frequency of these notifications -- ranging from High to Mute.
