Have you ever been frustrated because you couldn’t search for someone in the Pega Community by their name? Good news -- now you can!
With the new “Find a Community Member” tool, you can now search for Pega Community members by first name, last name, or a combination of both. You can also search by keywords in a person’s Profile (e.g. text in their Bio), and filter results by various criteria, including:
- Product Experience
- Project Role
- Availability for a Project
Who Can See What?
For this release, Pega employees will be able to find all other Pega employees as well as Partner community members. Customers will be able to find Pega Community members within their own organization but not those of other customers. Likewise, Partners will be able to find Pega Community members within their own organization but not those of other Partners.
“Get Noticed. Stay Connected.”
The best way to be found on the Pega Community is to make sure that you’ve updated your Pega Profile. The more complete the information about yourself, the more easily you can be found by someone searching for your unique set of skills, including your product experience, certifications, and specializations.
Worried you’re not technical enough to have a Profile? No matter your role in the Pega Community, having a strong Profile is a way to put your best foot forward and stay engaged in the Community. By keeping your Pega Profile up to date, you manage your own personal Pega brand.
How Do I Use the New Search?
To search for Community members, go to my.pega.com and make sure you are signed in, click on the “Hello …” drop-down in the upper-right corner, and select “Find a Community Member (Beta).” You can also access it via the “Hello … “ drop-down on the Community site.
