We’ve been busy this December, releasing some exciting new enhancements to Merit, including new features for Merit clipping, student and faculty Merit pages, and the the alumni notes program for high schools.
Enhancements for Clipping
We’ve added some exciting new enhancements to Merit clipping thanks to your great feedback. Top requests for clipping included more analytics and support for social media clipping. Both features are live in your account now!
Social Media Clipping
Merit now searches Facebook and Twitter for social media posts that match your keywords. See it in your account here.
We’ve added analytics for your traditional media and social media news clips. Want more insight? Let us know what kind of clipping analytics you’d like to see. Contact your customer success representative or our help desk to let us know.
See it in your account here.
- Filter by news source, news source category, or social media account
- Filter by Twitter or Facebook
- Filter social clips and news clips by date range
- Download news clips and social clips as a csv file
- Visualize your all clips on interactive graphs and charts
Improvements to Student and Faculty Merit pages
Support for resumes and other documents
Students and faculty members can now add resumes and other documents to their Merit pages. Files such as Word documents and PDFs can now be added to each section of the Merit page, including activities, work experience, and projects and publications.
Resumes are displayed on the informational sidebar on the left side of the page.
Support for links to other sites (GitHub, Instagram, and more)
A new section in account management allows people to add links to sites like Instagram, Facebook, GitHub, Twitter, and any other site to their Merit page. Links appear just under the student or faculty member’s name.
Improvements for High Schools:
Principals and Guidance Counselors can now congratulate alumni on their success
By including high school (CEEB) codes with your students, you’re enabling Merit to share your stories of student success with our network of high school principals and guidance counselors across the the country, and now those stakeholders can comment on, and congratulate students for their academic success just like government representatives can.
