Who can post to which categories?

Even if you select the checkboxes in your profile to enable posting Connects to those categories, you may not be able to post a connect if you do not have permissions to do so. For example, everyone on campus can post to the "Lost and Found" category, while only people related to Career Services will be able to post to the "Career Services" category. Enabling the checkbox for a category in your profile does not guarantee that you have the proper permission to post to that category.

If you believe you should have permissions to post a Connect but are not able to do so, please contact the IT Help Desk at (406) 496-4244 or come to MG 110 during business hours.
