JBS Alumni App Frequently Asked Questions

NEW medium for web.jpgWho can see my information in the Burroughs EverTrue community?  Only you and other Burroughs alumni!

How do I get EverTrue on my smart phone?  Search for the EverTrue Alumni Community in the iPhone App Store or the Google Play store. Once you download the app and open it, you will be prompted to search for your community: John Burroughs School. EverTrue supports iOS 7 and above as well as Android 4.0.3 and above.

How do I log in once I’ve downloaded EverTrue and selected the John Burroughs School community?  You can authenticate with LinkedIn, or you can sign in with your e-mail address and create your own password. To confirm your account, you'll need to click on a confirmation link that will be sent to you via e-mail.

What does it mean when my information is under review?  If your e-mail address does not match what the alumni office has on file, they will use your name, class year, and other information you supply to confirm your identity. 

How do I search for people using the directory?  Type the name of the person you are seeking in the search box (first name, last name, or both). You also have the option to search by class year by typing a year into the search box.

How do I search for people based on where they live?  Click on Alumni Nearby and you’ll see a map. Drag and zoom on the map to find your desired location. Tap the letter B’s that appear on the map to see who they represent. 

Linkedin.jpgWhat do the little LinkedIn icons mean?  If an alum’s record is connected to his/her LinkedIn profile, the app allows you to jump right to that profile.  It’ll also be easier to locate alums based on their careers or geographical areas if they have LinkedIn profiles. Don’t forget to list John Burroughs School in the education field in your LinkedIn profile, and be sure to join the LinkedIn group called John Burroughs School Alumni!

How do I update my contact information?  In the phone app, within your own record, click "Update this profile."  If you're using the desktop version instead of the phone app, within your own profile click "Suggest Updates to Profile."
