Note: In the US, the term has been amended to "Testimonial" throughout the system. That was done after these screenshots were made :- ) We will update this guide soon!
HOW DOES A NON BNI MEMBER LIST A RECOMMENDATION OR TESTIMONIAL. I HAVE A SOME PAST MEMBERS AND OTHER CLIENTS WHO HAVE RECOMMENDATION AND TESTIMONIAL FOR MY WORK. HOW CAN I SEND THEM A LINK TO LIST THESE ON MY BNI PROFILE? PLEASE REPLY OR RESPOND TO 714-292-9832 RUBEN SOTO
Ruben - One thing that people have done to add client and past member testimonials to their profile is to create a "picture" of the testimonial (save the document or PDF as a JPG\PNG\GIF file) and upload this to their photo gallery on their profile. If you look at the Photos tab on my profile you can see a few samples that I put in there. Hope this helps!
PS - to upload photos to your gallery on your profile, click on NETWORK>PICTURE GALLERY.
Hope this helps!
Is there a way to edit a testimonial? There was a spelling mistake in a testimonial I gave that I would really like to correct.
In order to correct a testimonial, please contact the recipient of the testimonial and ask them to delete it so that you may submit a new one.
Hope this helps!
Jeremy, Thank you for providing this tutorial to help members preserve our invaluable testimonials.
Hi Jeremy, can you let me now if when you write a testimonial for someone on line the PALMS report is updated automatically, or would you need to submit this at the meeting?
After a member writes a testimonial online, they DO still need to submit this as a slip for PALMS credit at the chapter meeting. This is NOT recorded automatically in BNI Connect.
I posted a positive testimonial a while ago. Unfortunately the recipient member has not lived up to the BNI standards, and, although I don't want to give negative feedback, I don't want to be associated anymore as a recommending party . How can I delete the testimonial that I had posted? I don't want to ask the member to delete it. Since I posted it, I should be able to delete it. Thanks for your help.
Hi Bob, thanks for the helpful tutorial. Did I miss the part about writing a testimonial for a BNI member from another chapter and vis versa? I would appreciate your help in this. Thanks!
Is it okay to do a testimonial on your mentor's mentoring?
How can we give a testimonial for BNI in BNI Connect?
Jeremy, how does one document a testimonial with a slip? I haven't heard of this before. I just completed a term as VP and never saw a way to record testimonials in PALMS.
Thanks. John Atkinson
The recording of testimonials in the PALMS report is not currently a worldwide standardized practice, therefore there is no slip available to input that directly. For those countries that follow this local practice, those credits need to be input manually.
Hope this helps!
Editing and deleting what you have said should be a feature.
Did any update happen during these few years?
Why can’t we give a testimonial multiple times to the same member in the connect?Is there a specific reason for that?
Can old testimonial given to my connections be edited or updated?
@subhash - once you have given the testimonial, the person whom you gave the testimonial to now "owns" it. If you wish to update or replace it, you would need to ask them to delete it first. Hope this helps!
Jeremy hope you are ok, Can I share a testimonial for one networker in a different chapter? if I do not have it as a contact?
