The Agilent Community offers a way to exchange private messages with other users. The table below outlines the steps to send private messages.



Step 1 – Login

Step 2 – Hover the mouse over a username you want to message and click the Follow button in the pop-up window.














You can also Follow users from their profile page.


Step 3 – The other user must Follow you back before you can send a private message. When you Follow someone, they will get an email notification to prompt them to Follow you back.









They also get a notification in their Agilent Community Inbox, where they can click Follow.


Step 4 – After you have a bidirectional relationship, you can send a Private Message by going clicking the Create link on the top right of the page and clicking Message.
Step 5 - Start typing the username you wish to message in the To: box and click the username when it appears in the list.
Step 6 - Enter the subject and message and click the Send button.


Your message was privately sent to the user.  There is not a way to attach files privately, but if you are comfortable doing so, you can share links to file sharing sites like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.
