When you are added as a ProfNet subscriber, a Communications Professional Profile is created for you on ProfNet Connect. Your profile must be fully setup and configured before you can begin creating Expert Profiles for Experts you manage. You should have received a welcome email with login information upon commencement of your ProfNet subscription. Your username to log in should be your email address. Use the 'forgot password' option in the green box on the homepage to set a password for yourself, if necessary.


Once your own Communications Professional Profile is established on ProfNet Connect, you may begin creating profiles for any Experts you manage. There is no limit to how many Expert Profiles you may create.


If an SIO or IO on your ProfNet account is no longer available to manage his/her Experts on ProfNet Connect, those Expert Profiles can be transferred to another SIO or IO for management purposes. (Note: All SIOs or IOs are listed as "Communications Professionals" on ProfNet Connect.)

Any reassignment of Expert Profiles on ProfNet Connect will sync back to your organization's hierarchy tree on ProfNet (under My Organization > Organization View).
