How to integrate with Graduway

Integrating with Graduway is simple! We've broken down our instructions below into easy-to-follow steps, to ensure that we can set this up for you quickly and easily.

First, we'll need your Platform ID (a five digit number) and Platform Name (the same as your Graduway domain). You can get these values from your Graduway Professional Service Manager.

Next, we need an API Integration Key, which can be found in the Graduway settings:

Log into your Graduway site and go to the "Admin View" using the button in the upper right corner of the page.

Under General Settings, you can scroll down to the "Integrations" section to make sure that "API Integrations" is enabled and copy the key.

As an option, you can send mentor Profile Attributes you would like to map to the uConnect taxonomy. In order to do that, you should click the "Profile Attributes" link under the "User Management" options. Make a list of the questions for each section along with the categories in uConnect that you would like to map them to.

Note that we can only map Graduway fields that are "Single select" or "Multi select".

Profile Visibility

You have the option to indicate whether you'd like your full mentor profiles to be viewable on uConnect as well, or whether you'd prefer to keep just the profiles previews available on uConnect, and redirect students back to Graduway to view the full profile.

Previews are the tiles you see within your mentor widgets within your community pages, and on your mentor library on uConnect. By default, your integration will be set to just have the previews active, with a goal to drive more engagement back to Graduway as soon as a user clicks to 'Connect with' the mentor of interest to them. Previews include name, photo, job, employer, and (optionally) location.

If you choose to enable the full profile on uConnect, when clicking on 'Connect with' for a given mentor, a visitor would be directed to a full profile page on uConnect, which would include all information in the preview in addition to a full bio of them. From this page, the visitor would then be able to click out to Graduway to request any sort of contact with the mentor.

Next Steps

Once you've submitted this information, we can set up your integration! The next step will be to map the incoming tags and category from Graduway to your uConnect communities. This will ensure that your incoming mentors are intelligently assigned to the proper communities without you having to lift a finger. To learn more about mapping, read this article here
