How to set your Email Notifications
Officine Italiane Innovazione will send you a number of email messages to notify interesting facts that happen in the community. You can finely control which notifications you would like to receive, by visiting the Email Notifications page.
In addition you can control email notifications for individual items (e.g. blog posts, forum discussions, etc.). Click on the link Non seguire più (This means Stop following in Italian) that can be found at the end of each item, to disable notifications for it (see picture below).
If you wish to restore email notifications for an item for which they have been disbaled, just click on the link Segui (This means Follow in Italian) that can be found at the end of the item (see picture below).
How to search the Members list
The Members list is one of the most important components of the Officine.
In it you can search for relevant contacts among hundreds of Businesses, from different industries.
The Members list can be found under the Iscritti menu item, available in the main menu bar, as shown in the picture below (Iscritti means Registered [Members] in Italian)
If you click on this menu item, you will be brought to the Tutti i membri page (that means All Members in Italian). In this page, look for the search box, i.e. the box with a lens icon to its right, highlighted in the following picture:
As most company profiles are in Italian, you should use Italian terms in the search box.
In order to make this task easier for you, we propose below a table with the Italian translation of the terms that relate to industry segments — as they were defined in the profile questions proposed during the registration procedure — since these are probably the most important ones you might want to use when looking for relevant partnerships.
That's all there is to it: have a good search and do not hesitate to contact us for any additional need (by the way, you will find instructions on how to contact us after the translation table).
