“Jack of all trades, master of none”? We beg to differ.

A quick overview

Experts are an invaluable asset of Mereka Connect. They are an endless source of knowledge and inspiration for users, and an essential pillar of any Hub. In this article, we’ll share the basics of what it means to be an Expert for Mereka Connect.

For Hubs

It is important to invite talented Experts to your Hub as they will be the ones conducting Experiences and providing consultation services in your Spaces. Additionally, if your Hub rents out Machines, Experts will be the ones to assist your users in operating them.

Experts may only join your Hub by invitation. If you would like more information on this process please click here.

It’s also possible (and recommended!) to assign specific roles to the Experts within your Hub. To learn more about user roles and permissions, read this article.

For Users
