Making interest-based contacts is a great way to bring your audience together. This allows participants to easily and quickly find like-minded people and connect with them on desired topics. The user does not have to bother to find similar participants, but the platform does it for them, displaying the participants with most similar interests first in the participation list.
📝 Defining the interests
You can define your interests from the "PROFILE" view. Scroll down to see the "Edit interests" button.
When you click the button, the "I'm offering" view will appear first:
To add a new interest, write your interest in the "Search or define interests (case sensitive!)" area and click "ADD".
Below is a checklist of interests added by other participants/organizer (in alphabetical order). The interest added by the participant him-/herself appears first and is automatically marked.
Select up to five interests in total and then click the green arrow button.
Next, the "I am seeking" view will appear on the same working principle, with the difference that now you have to mark the interests you are looking for.
All defined interests appear as lists in two columns below the profile:
Taking into account the interests marked by the participants, the Worksup platform will look for the best possible matches from all users.
The way matchmaking works, is that when you move to the "Participants" view, the list is displayed in the order of the participants with the most interests in common with you (the number of matches is shown in the other participant's profile).
Clicking on the “PROFILE” button will take the participant to the other attendee's profile, showing their defined interests. Common interests are highlighted in black, others remain gray in the background.
There is, of course, a "Say hi 👋" button on the profile, through which you can quickly connect with like-minded participants to discuss your common interests.
