Since the beginning we allowed Mentees to post a review for their mentors. The numbers speak for themselves: With an average score of 5.8 / 6.0, the overall satisfaction with mentors remains extremely high. We opened the feedback feature now also for the other direction and allowed mentors to leave feedback for their mentees.
The statistics are online for mentees as well. We also improved the look and feel of the mentee profile and added book recommendations and a feedback section.
Our AI-based chat introduction which introduces a mentor to their mentee after they booked the first session, was disabled because of some changes to the OpenAI API. We fixed this issue.
When users register a new account, they must confirm their email address to ensure their identity is correct. We rebuilt this process for better reliability. If a user does not receive or deletes the confirmation email, they can now resend the email from their account page. Therefore we now allow users to log into their accounts even before confirmation to manage their settings.
We're excited to announce a significant update to our platform - a new sidebar on mentor profile pages, providing valuable insights through key statistics. This addition aims to enhance the mentoring experience and facilitate better pairing of mentors and mentees. Here's what's new:
Completed Sessions: A comprehensive count of all sessions conducted by the mentor through The Mentoring Club.
Attendance Rate:A crucial metric showing the ratio of completed sessions to no-shows, highlighting the mentor's reliability and commitment.
Average Feedback:Mentors receive feedback from mentees after each session. This feature displays the average rating, reflecting the mentor's overall impact and effectiveness.
Mentor Since:A date stamp marking the mentor's joining date on our platform, showcasing their experience and journey with us.
Last Session: Indicates the date of the mentor's most recent session, keeping their profile up-to-date and informative.
Looking Ahead: We're not stopping here! We'll introduce similar metrics on mentee pages. Our goal is to continuously improve the quality of our service and make it easier for mentees and mentors to find their ideal matches.
Stay tuned for more updates as we strive to enhance your experience on our platform!
We fixed a bug in the availability manager that led to some mentors not being able to set up their schedules. The time frames for availabilities are now correctly handled in all cases.
Our members can now join several mentoring programs provided by us or our partners. When a new member registers with us and their email address is on a whitelist for a specific program, or if there are more than one open program available, they can choose which program(s) to join during the registration. On their account page, there is a new section "Programs" to manage their memberships.
We improved the navigation sidebar:
- better and clearer icons
- the sidebar is not collapsable to have more space for the actual contents
- we reorganized the menu items for better usability
