Q: How do I use a Referral Card?

A: If you navigate to any profile, your own or another member’s, you’ll see the option to forward (indicated by the rounded arrow) a Referral Card. Once you select this option, you can forward your referral to card to any existing connections by simply entering their name if you’re connected or their email if you have yet to connect. From there, you can also add a personal message before forwarding the Referral Card. To see this process in action, check out our tutorial video!
