What happens when I "share" an achievement?

Last Updated: Aug 11, 2015 05:15PM EDT

In addition to your students doing great things on your campus, many students are recognized by other organizations across the Merit network for what they accomplish, either in addition to their campus accolades, or after they graduate.

When other organizations on the Merit network promote your students, you can share in their success and affiliate your brand with their achievement by promoting those students to your Merit page. There are 2 main use cases for promoting achievements via your Merit dashboard: 

1. Sharing achievements from other organizations on the Merit network:

Organizations like Phi Kappa Phi use Merit to promote student inductions, grants, awards and more. If a student at your institution is inducted into Phi Kappa Phi, you'll see it on your Merit timeline and will be able to share this achievement to your own Merit page! 

2. Sharing for Community Colleges and High Schools:

If you are a community college, boarding school, or high school using Merit, you'll see the achievements of your alumni as shareable achievements in the timeline on your Merit dashboard. It's a great way to continue to share the successes of your alumni! 

Here's how it works:

As the Merit Network grows, you will begin to see more achievements from other institutions and organizations. These stories appear because they are your alumni, or students who currently attend your institution.

The Share feature allows you to publish this story directly to your institution's Merit Page. After clicking Share, a light box will appear. Here, you can change the title of the story before it is posted.

After selecting Share This Achievement, the story will appear in chronological order by semester on your institution's Merit Page. The achievement will appear on the student's Merit Page even if you choose not to share it.

To remove a shared achievement from your institution's Merit Page, hover over the achievement, and select Unshare.
