Direct Messaging functionality enables you to directly interact with other platform and community members – be it to exchange experiences, discuss best-practices, talk and learn about smart city solutions, forge new collaborations, initiate new partnerships, or to discuss events or tenders.
You can send messages to members as an initial request to connect with you. Messages to non-contacts are limited to 5 per day.
Requests to connect with other members can be found in your "pending contacts" list. Once they have approved the connection, they are moved to the "my contacts" list.
You can send unlimited messages to all contacts that you are directly connected with (everyone in your "my contacts" list).
In order to prevent misuse, we have added the possibility to report messages with inappropriate content or spam intentions. In the case of unwanted contact requests, you have the possibility to add these contacts to your “ignored members” list.
