How to connect

You can connect with any contact that's in your address book (or, if they're not, just add them and click to connect). You can also invite multiple contacts using the group invite button.

On the mobile app, open a contact card and tap on "Invite" (on the top right corner of your screen).

The connection invitation along with your personalized message will go to the contact's chosen email address. If they are already a Covve user they will receive a connection invitation within Covve.

 

You can check and manage your connection invites through your profile, by tapping on "My network" or through your "Leads".

 

 

On the web app, select the invite button on a contact card.

The connection invitation along with your personalized message will go to the contact's chosen email address. If they are already a Covve user they will receive a connection invitation within Covve.

You can also connect with multiple contacts in one go by using the multiple connect tool:

 

 

 

Connecting provides the following benefits:

Private address book sharing

Connecting with a contact adds them to your personal private network (and vice versa). By accessing your network view you'll be able to view and search their contacts in a manner that protects their privacy.

Profiles exchange

The moment your connection invitation is accepted, the entry in your address book for that contact will be updated with the user's up to date profile (and vice versa).

From then on, your contact card will remain up to date with their profile. When changes are made you will be informed through a notification in your notifications panel.

Note that in order to protect your data, these automatic updates:

a) will never delete emails or phone numbers from your address book, even if your connected contact removes them from their profile; and

b) will never remove data that was in the contact card before you connected.

Disconnecting

To disconnect from a contact click on the green connect icon (which will turn red as you hover over it). The connect icon will turn grey, indicating no connection.

Disconnecting from a contact will instantly remove them from your private graph and vice versa. Your contacts will not be accessible to them and your profile updates will not be visible to them.

The person who you've disconnected from will not receive any notification that you have disconnected. The connect icon for your contact card in their address book will become grey.
