The Network Section

Last Updated: Feb 23, 2017 12:18PM EST
What is the Network section?

The Network tab is where you'll find more information about the stakeholders you're connected to with Merit, and which students at your school are connected to those stakeholders. In a way, it's similar to the directory of students in the Students section of your account, but the students are filtered by the schools and other organizations they are associated with.

How is the Network section organized?

The Network section is divided into 6 separate tabs, and within those tabs you can click to view a more detailed view of the schools, organizations, and media outlets you see there. 





Tabs in the Network section:
 
  • All - Your complete Merit Network
  • High Schools - High schools you're connected to
  • Community Colleges - Community colleges you're connected to
  • Other - Other types of organizations you're connected to, like honor societies.
  • Media - Media organizations within your reach
  • Government - Government representatives within your reach


Network > High Schools 

The high schools tab shows you all of the high schools you're reaching with Merit. For each high school Merit shows you:
 
  • High school name
  • Type of high school (public, private etc...)
  • How many students are enrolled at that high school
  • High school address
  • Number of students in your school's Merit account who went to that high school
  • Number of Merit updates you've sent to that high school
  • Date of the last update sent


High schools become part of your Merit network and receive alumni updates from Merit when you include high school codes (CEEB codes) with your student imports and updates. For more information on how Merit reaches high schools, see: How does Merit reach high schools? & What do high schools receive from Merit?






High school detail page:

Each high school has a detail page that let's you dig in further. Filter your students within each high school by:
 
  • The achievements they've been recognized for
  • Their majors
  • The activities they've participated in
  • Their work experience 
  • Class years

Network > Community Colleges

Here you can view the community colleges that are part of your Merit network. Community colleges become part of your Merit network generally in 3 ways:
 
  1. A student attended a community college also using Merit, and that student now attends your school.
  2. Your school included college codes in the CEEB code column of an uploaded spreadsheet 
  3. A student has manually added that community college to their Merit page 


For each community college in your network you will see:
  • College name
  • Type of college
  • College address
  • How many students from your school are associated with that college
  • Number of Merit updates in which you've recognized students from this college 
  • Date of your last update recognizing students connected to that college
