Expand the Language Filter
The language filter is a feature that will flag concerning words in mentoring relationships' conversations to program administrators. It is not case sensitive but the exact spelling of a word must be used to be flagged.
When a word has been flagged as concerning, the program administrator will receive a notification to review the message. The message can be approved or denied. If denied, the message will not be delivered.
The language filter is already built-in however it is possible to add additional words to the filter.
Step 1- Expand the Language Filter
1.0 Click the “Admin” tab on the left-hand side of the platform.
1.1 Click "Language Filter" under the "Customize" section on the right-hand side of the page.

Step 2 - Review Flagged Messages
2.0 When a word listed on the language filter has been flagged, the main program administrator will received an email and mobile notification. If you are not the main administrator you can view flagged messages under the "Language Filter" tab of the administrator's dashboard but you will not receive a notification.
2.1 The message containing the flagged word will be indicated in the body of the email. In this below example, the mentee used the word "Gun" in his message to the mentor.
