My Activities

When a participant contributes to a project, the event is logged under “My activities” in the participant profile. The “My activities” feed will display up to three previous project contributions at a time; participants can access a complete list of contributions by clicking the “view all” link.

Manage Project Subscriptions

Participants can subscribe to receive admin generated updates on projects they’ve subscribed via the subscribe widget. If a participant has subscribed to a project it will be displayed here.

How Project Recommendations operate

When a participant contributes to a project, the tags assigned to that project are referenced to generate "Recommended Projects" and determine the participants' areas of interest. On login, recommendations will display the recently published projects using that tag. Read about assigning project tags here.

If the contributed project does not have a tag associated with it, "Recommended Projects" will generate by default the three most recent projects published on that site.
