Huddle Quick Start Guide

Huddle lets you team up with PAs like never before. Here are some tips to get you started!

1. Log In

Log in with your AAPA username and password. On the home page you will find the latest discussions, announcements, library resources and more!

2. Personalize Your Profile
Click on your image in the top right corner to access your profile.  Add your bio, education and job history. Take a moment to upload your photo. 

PRO TIP: You can easily transfer your professional information by connecting your LinkedIn account. 

3. Customize Your Settings

Select “My Account” in your profile to adjust your email settings, control how much of your profile is visible to other members and set your default signature.

PRO TIP: You are automatically subscribed to the “Daily Digest” for each community you belong to, which will provide a single email each day summarizing the latest discussions happening in the Huddle. If you want to stay on top of every message, you can adjust your setting to “Real Time,” and receive messages as soon as they are posted. 

4. Find Colleagues and Cohorts

Click on “Network” in the navigation bar and select “Member Directory” to find your peers. You can search by name, company, location and more. Add them as contacts to share information and build your network.

PRO TIP: You can browse PA programs in the “PA Program Search” and get a list of Huddle members who attended your program.

5. Join or Start a Discussion

Click on “Communities” and then select “All Communities” to find your available communities. Visit the “Discussions” area within any community to see all of the conversations happening. See a thread you’d like to join? Click “Reply to Discussion” to chime in! 

PRO TIP: If you wish to connect with someone privately, choose “Reply to Sender” instead of “Reply to Discussion.”
