1. Navigate to a user's thread.

2. Above that user's avatar, you will see two buttons – the user’s name to view their Partner Finder Profile and an envelope () to "Send Private Message."

3. Click the "" button. The message window will pop open.

4. Add a subject line, the full text of your message, and click send.

5. To reply to a message, DO NOT REPLY TO THE EMAIL NOTIFICATION. The user will not receive your message. You MUST reply from your message center.

 

From The Message Center

 

1. Navigate to your Message Center by clicking the “Messages” tab at the top of the webpage, it is present in the header of every page.
