1) WHO I FIND IN THE FINLANTERN COMMUNITY?
In the FinLantern Community you find all financial professionals registered like you to FinLantern events.
2) WHERE DO I FIND THE LIST OF DELEGATES ATTENDING MY SAME EVENT?
The list of FinLantern members are in COMMUNITY and they are visible 2 weeks before the events.
On the left menu you find the DIRECT CONNECTIONS and all the events you subscribed (CURRENT and PAST).
Clicking on the event you see the list of delegates and you can text them by clicking on the message icon.
2. From the menu EVENTS at the top, you find all the events and by clicking DELEGATES LIST you access the list
3) CAN I FILTER THE MEMBERS LIST?
YES, the members of the Community can be filtered by category and country. It’`s also possible to search by keywords.
These filters are found under CONTACTS in the SEARCH box.
4) HOW CAN I EXIT FROM THE COMMUNITY?
If you do not want to be a part of the Community, simply login and access your profile settings (at the top right), and click on edit, to take away the tick on “I WANT TO BE PART OF THE FINLANTERN COMMUNITY” located in the box “PRIVACY”.
Therefore, you will not be visible anymore to the members of FinLantern, can no longer be contacted and equally have no access to the list of delegates to contact.
Anyway, you keep your USERNAME (registration email) and PASSWORD to manage your FinLantern account. Actually, this account will be useful to keep updated for rapid registration to the next FinLantern event without having to fill out another form.
5) HOW TO BE MORE VISIBLE ON FINLANTERN COMMUNITY, IN ORDER TO BE MORE EASILY CONTACTED BY OTHER MEMBERS?
The elements affecting the profile order of members are in searches:
– Profile picture
– Complete profile info with indication of what is being offered or searched
– Number of messages sent (not to the same member)
– Number of messages received (not from the same member)
– Number of replies sent (not to the same member)
Registration to events
6) CAN I SIGN UP FOR AN EVENT WITHOUT BEING PART OF THE COMMUNITY?
YES, it is possible.
In this case simply fill out the registration form without ticking the box “I WANT TO BE PART OF THE FINLANTERN COMMUNITY.”
This user will not be visible to the others registered to the same event, will not be contacted by them and will not even have access to the delegates list to contact. However, this user will have a USERNAME (registration email) and a PASSWORD to manage his FinLantern account. This account will be useful to keep updated for rapid registration to the next FinLantern event without having to fill out another form.
7) IS IT POSSIBLE TO CANCEL THE REGISTRATION TO AN EVENT?
YES. This option is obviously always possible and without any penalty.
The unexpected are always possible…so for this reason FinLantern requires simply but compulsory, to be informed by clicking on UNSUBSCRIBE in the section EVENTS from the delegate who signed up and does not to participate.
We believe that this is a normal rule of commonsense and education!
WARNING: If a user is signed up for an event and then cancels the registration, FinLantern reserves the right to suspend this user ability to send and receive messages to participants of the event.
(Note that the FinLantern Community rule is based on putting in contact the person that is actually participating at the same event).
8) WHAT HAPPENS IF I SIGNED UP FOR A FINLANTERN EVENT AND DO NOT ATTEND?
If a user is signed up for an event and not attend without notifying FinLantern, will lose the chance to send or receive messages to the participants of that event (Note that the FinLantern Community rule is based on putting in contact the person that is actually participating at the same event).
WARNING: FinLantern, unlike those who inform their absences by email to Subscriptions@FinLantern.com, reserves the right to suspend the user account that does not inform or apply a surcharge (depending on the organizing costs and catering sustained) for the next event registration.
9) WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “MEMBERS, CONTACTS AND CONNECTIONS”?
MEMBERS are all those who registered directly on the FinLantern site (www.FinLantern.com) or at the events organized by FinLantern and that tick the box “I WANT TO BE PART OF THE FINLANTERN COMMUNITY”.
CONTACTS are all the Community members who signed up for the same event and therefore can be contacted through messaging.
When sending a message to another member, it is implicitly inviting the other to become his CONNECTION.
If the recipient accept the sender’s message as connection (click on ACCEPT), they will be connected directly (CONNECTIONS) and can always exchange messages between them through FinLantern Community for free.
10) WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF HAVING THE CONNECTIONS?
Being connected with other members is very important because it is possible to exchange unlimited messages for free at any time and without affecting the number of available messages.
11) CAN I SIGN UP FOR AN EVENT WITH INTENTIONS TO ACCESS THE LIST OF DELEGATES AND/OR TO SEND THEM MESSAGES, WITHOUT ACTUALLY PARTICIPATING AT THE EVENT?
This procedure is strictly prohibited, since FinLantern Community is a tool created specifically to facilitate matching and meeting during the events organized by the same FinLantern.
FinLantern reserves the right to suspend the profiles of those who signed up for an event without participating, referring particularly to those who did not notify their absences.
You can REGISTER TO EVENTS and EXCHANGE MESSAGES also through the FinLantern App: DOWNLOAD IT NOW https://finlantern.com/community/
