What is my username and password?

How do I join a Section group?

Click "Find Groups to Join."

How do I start a new discussion in a group?

Be sure you are a member of the group first! Then start a discussion by clicking Post New Discussion from the Discussions tab within any group. New discussions can also be started via email by clicking on the "Post New Discussion" link in the notification emails you receive.

How do I reply to a group discussion?

Simply click the reply button on the discussion! You can also reply to the email notification you received -- your reply will be emailed out to all group members and posted to the website. If you wish, you can also reply to the discussion via the website by clicking on the discussion topic and clicking the reply button.

Who can see what I post to a group?

All groups in the Hub are members-only, so only your fellow current IAIA members can see your posts. Some groups, like committee groups, are private. When you post a message to a private group, only members of that group can see your message. 

How do I search group discussion history?

Easily search all discussion topics within the groups you have joined by using the search bar at the top of your IAIA Hub home page or under the search tab on the left-hand side of your screen. 

How do I remove myself from a group entirely?

To unsubscribe from any group, just click the "Remove Me" button on that group's homepage.

How do I change the timing of the notifications for these group discussions (daily digests vs. one weekly digest vs. real-time email notifications)?

Click "My Profile" on the left menu, then click "Update Profile." Click on the "Notifications" tab to set your preferences. There are individual emails, daily digests, weekly digests, or no emails, and this timing can be controlled separately for each group and/or overall.

How do I add or change my profile picture?

To add or change a profile picture, click "My Profile" on the left menu of the Connect website. Then click the "Change Profile Picture" button and you will be prompted to locate and save a picture to your profile.

Why is there a website? Do I have to use it?

Once you have joined a group, the system can be used entirely via email if desired. You can send your messages to the group email address and reply via email to any notifications you receive. The website offers many features that are not available via email. Here are a few of the most popular features that must be accessed via the website:

  • Searchable archives of all group discussions
  • Update your profile and/or upload a photo to be associated with your profile
  • Privately message another member
  • Join Section groups

How do I access the website?

Many of the links in the notification emails will automatically log you into the IAIA Hub website. To access the site directly, go to hub.iaia.org.

Why am I receiving some notifications but not others?

Your anti-SPAM system is likely blocking some of the messages. Add "@hub.iaia.org" to your list of "safe senders" to ensure you receive all notifications. This setting is different for each email system, so check your email system help for information on how to do this.

Do I need to follow certain etiquette when using IAIA Hub?

Yes, please view the etiquette page.

How can I find a member's email address?

For privacy reasons, you are not able to view the email address of any members. However, you can send a private message to any member without knowing their email address. See the note below about sending private messages.

How can I send a private message to an individual?

Go to the profile page of the person you want to message by clicking their name in any Group or in any notification email. Then click "Message this Person," enter a subject and message body, and click "Post." To start a new private message, click "Private Message" from the menu on the website, click "Write a New Message," enter a subject, person to message (just type in their name and select the person's name), message body, and then click "Post."
