Campus Wall & Channels
One of the most interactive parts of the mobile app is the Wall. This is your community.arrow pointing to settings button on mobile app

There's a main student feed, and you can also choose to follow and post in some specific channels. Those channels are:
  • Buy & Sell
  • Lost + Found
  • Housing
  • Newsvisible channels list on the mobile app
  • Ride Sharing
  • Vermilion Campus
  • Lloydminster Campus

You can turn these channels off and on, and also turn the notifications from these channels off and on [see graphic at right].

Start at the top right with the gear symbol, also known as settings button [see graphic above right], and then turn channels off and on.

Why use the channels?
If you a buying or selling something, or lost or found something, it's a lot easier to locate a specific post if it's on a designated channel. Pick that channel and that's the only posts you'll see.If you're looking for a specific textbook, for example, then all you will see are posts related to buying and selling. So, you save time not having to scroll through all posts on the entire student feed.

Once you set your visible channels they will appear above the wall feed (see below).

You can click on a particular channel to see just the posts for that channel.

Inbox
The inbox allows you to send and receive messages to other people who use the app.
Profile

They will be even better once the whole website is responsive later in Fall 2016.
Orientation Stream
The orientation stream tab is only available before orientation/registration days. It has a lot of listings - by year and by program - for the September intake. We're working on providing this same type of information for apprenticeship and ETC intakes during other times in the academic year.
