Accessing Campus Settings is only available to Admins. If you do not see the icons discussed in this article please let us know.

When you are first setting up your Filo.co Campus there are a few settings to be aware of. You'll want to review the following to familiarize yourself with the options and make some decisions before you start fully configuring your Campus or inviting non-admins/general members in.

Accessing Campus Settings

To access the Campus Settings click on the ellipsis in the upper left hand side of your Campus by the Campus name. Then click on "Campus Settings":

Campus/Campus settings video tutorial

You will now see this screen:

Campus Icon

The Campus icon should reflect your brand and will show in the left hand corner to identify your Campus, as well as be included if you choose to use the Filo system invitation email to new members (we'll cover this a little later). The recommended size is 400px x 400px. You can click on the icon circle, or the "Add Campus Icon" box to find your image on your device, or drag and drop your image into the circle. Alway be sure to click "Update" to save any changes you've made.

Campus Name

Your Campus Name should also reflect your brand or event name. This will also be included in the Filo system invitation email to new members should you choose to use that. You can change this at any time:

Filo.co system invitation email

Toggle on the "Send Filo system invitation email to new members" if you would like any new member who is added to your Filo.co Campus to receive the below email (at this time nothing that isn't highlighted can be customized):

This can be toggled on and off as needed. (You can also change this if you are utilizing the add member section directly from a Filo Floor). When you go to add new members you will see this message at the top of the Add New Member box when the email option is ON:

And when it's OFF:

Light or Dark Theme

Another decision to make, especially before planning any branding content, is if you want to use Light Theme or Dark Theme. Toggle this on or off depending on the current setting and see the difference.

Light Theme example:

Dark Theme example:

Join Room Button Color

In a similar way, you can change the color of the join room button on Room Tiles (this does not effect the button on Zoom Tiles currently):

Example:

Email Notifications

Video tutorial - email notifications

Next click on "Email Notifications" from the list on the left hand corner. Here we want to decide what kind of email notifications we want our members / attendees to receive.

Mentions - email is sent when a user is @ mentioned in the Chat panel

Announcements - all members who have logged into Filo at least once will receive an email when an announcement is made by an Admin. (any announcements made before a user has logged in will not be visible to that user once they log in - so feel free to test this function before adding your members!)

New Roles - members will receive an email when they have been given a new role (only effects members who have logged in)

New Tasks - members who have been assigned a task in a Task Tile will receive an email

Check the box for any of the options you want to turn on.

Access Settings

Video tutorial - access settings

Click on "Access Settings" from the list on the left hand corner. Here we can Lock or Unlock the Campus. This is a way to add Members but not allow them access if the Campus is still being configured, etc. Keep in mind, unless the email invitation option is toggled on before you add Members, they will not be aware of being added to the Campus.

If you Lock the Campus, and a non-member tries to log in they will get this message after they create or enter their password:

If you plan to use this, we suggest making it clear in your other communication that they will be invited to Filo.co through an email, but they will not have access until a specific date to avoid any confusion.

A better way to limit what members can see would be to make all your Floors private to just Admins and add a Public Welcome Floor instead so that members can still login, update their profile, select networking tags if you are using that feature, and get acclimated to the campus!

Network Profiles

Network Profiles is a great way to connect your audience to each other - be it an event across many organizations, or within your own team!

Navigate to the Admin Panel and click on "Network Profile". Toggle on this feature.

Start adding your tags. I would preface them with a group type: i.e. Geo:, Hobby:, Industry:, Department:, etc.

From there choose a minimum number of tags you'd like each person to pick.

Go back out to the Floor where you want your members to see their matches. Click on the + to add a Tile and choose the Network Recommendations Tile. Move the tile where you'd like on the Floor.

When members login they will have a pop up requesting that they select their tags.

They can also go in and edit their tags at any time by clicking on their avatar and then selecting "Edit Network Profile":
