How Search Works on Qiqo
The administrator of a circle can create common tags. Members can add these tags to the files they upload and the articles they write to make them easier for other members to find.
When searching the resources in the circle, members can search by tag or keyword. The system performs a separate search on each word that you type into the search bar and returns items which have at least one match in their title, description, or tags.
Adding quotes to your search phrases does not affect the results. Searches are not case-sensitive.

1. Edit your profile.
Add a photo and a few sentences about yourself to your profile.
2. Connect with other members.
On the homepage of each circle, you'll find a list of all members, what they need and what they have to share. Click on their profile icon to contact them directly. Don't be shy!
3. Browse articles, conversations, & resources.
Across the top of each circle's homepage, you'll see all the tools such as articles, conversations, & resources.
4. Join a live event.
Unless a circle's administrator turns it off, you'll see a calendar of upcoming events on your circle's homepage.
5. Create something!
Add a resource; start a conversation; host a live event!
The power of Qiqo is that it helps members of a group organize from the bottom-up. Each member can share ideas and start conversations.
6. Start your own circle.
Do you belong to an organization that could benefit from Qiqo?
Create a circle for your team or organization here. Audio/video meetings are 1 cent/min per person. All other tools are free.
To add someone to your invitation-only circle, follow these steps:
1. Click the black menu bar in your circle and then the "Edit Circle" button.
2. Scroll to the bottom and click "Optional Features".
3. Select "Member Access" and then change the dropdown in Privacy Option 1 to "Yes".
4. In the box immediately below that, enter the email addresses of everyone you want to invite.
5. Scroll down and click the green "Update Circle" bottom.
Absolutely. You can do this by using the live event tool. Schedule an event to last for a few hours. Think of the breakout tables as the different rooms where speakers would present during an in-person conference. You can re-use these breakout spaces for different topics after each session concludes. As the admin, start the event at the Main Table and have an assistant remain there to provide tech support as the conference continues, because that's where latecomers will arrive.
Let people know that Qiqo is a powerful tool, but there is a slight learning curve. Give your members a few tips for getting started, but don't worry about explaining everything, because they probably won't read too many instructions, and they can figure most of it out on their own if they are just a little bit patient.
How do I send emails to all those who RSVP’d to an event?
If you created an event or are the circle administrator, there is a "Write Email" button on the landing page for your event. This will email everyone who has RSVPd and everyone who attended, even if they didn't RSVP.
That's a good idea. We recommend keeping them brief and listing them on your circle's homepage. If you need to have more detailed ground rules, you can write them in an article and link to them from your circle's homepage.
How many assistant administrators can there be in a circle?
There is no limit. Here are the steps:
1. The creator of your circle would look for the "Edit" button at the top of their circle's homepage.
2. Scroll down and click "Optional Features" and open the section called "Member Access & Assistant Admins".
3. Enter the exact usernames (not emails) of the people you want to make assistant admins. This means they will have to have an account first.
We believe that groups, organizations, and communities thrive when their members build relationships by sharing knowledge.
