Unlike internet e-mail, photos on MassageExchange.com are not "sent" as attachments. Instead, members upload photos to their photo gallery for others to view. Members with photos have a Photo Gallery button on their profile to display their photos.
One photo may be designated as your Primary Photo, which is displayed directly on your profile and included in all notifications sent to others.
Photos uploaded to your Private Gallery photos are private. You may grant access via a Photo Pass.
To allow a member to view your Private Gallery, send a Photo Pass by clicking Photo Pass in an e-mail or greeting. See sample screen below...
Recipients who receive your Photo Pass will see (at the top of the message you've sent) a button to view your Private Gallery photos:
Photo Pass - View My Private Gallery
The Credentials Gallery was added as a means to verify your authenticity (verify your gender, age, and location), professional training, degrees, credentials, and even vaccination status. Members may upload document images, in the same manner as Photos. (See Uploading Photos below.)
Credentials fall into one of these categories:
|Credential Type||Document(s)||Minimum Details|
Certificate of Completion
Massage Therapist License
Certificate of Completion
A Professional Credential is necessary to verify your status. New Student/Therapist accounts will be classified as Enthusiast until a Professional Credential is uploaded to one's Credentials Gallery. Identity and/or General Credentials are optional.
Our staff will review your credentials to verify your status, however your Credentials Gallery is otherwise private. If you have privacy concerns, do not share your Credentials with other members, or, perhaps, only with those you trust.
Following an Identity Credential or Professional Credential upload, our staff will verify your account. For your privacy, sharing your Identity Credential or Professional Credential with fellow members is not required to verify your account.
Credential Gallery images will be visible only to recipients to whom you send a Credentials Pass via an e-mail (but not greetings) †. Recipients who receive your Credentials Pass will see at the top of the message you've sent:
Credentials Pass - View My Credentials
† A Credentials Pass can only be sent with an e-mail, and viewing the sender's Credentials Gallery requires the same permissions as reading the e-mail: ① the sender or viewer must be Gold, or ② both are Silver, or ③ the Credentials Pass was sent with a T-mail.
Only the last! Hover over them (or tap them) to see explanation.
