Using Presdo for Speed Dating

Date & Time: Sunday, June 17th, 10:15 AM – 12:15 AM

One on One meetings are preset at 10 minutes each – 8 minutes for the meeting and 2 minutes to get to your next appointment.

When you see a profile that interests you and would like to request a meeting, click on the CONTACT button in their profile and you will be given the option to Request a Meeting or Send a Message.

Request a Meeting – this function will send a request to the party you wish to meet with and show them the times you are both free. They will then accept or decline and you will be notified of their answer.

Send a Message – this function allows you communicate with each other in the system without setting up a meeting.
