    How can a small company advertise its services in Unity Connect ?

    Hey mcl-at,

    At the moment we do not support Company's advertising their services. If you'd like to accomplish for now though, my advice would be to generate a user and name it after your company.

    Yes, I thought about doing that. Just wanted to check if that was ok for you moderators.

    As an indie game development studio that makes ends meet by doing contract work this seems to be a bit of an oversight. I know a lot of folks out there that use Unity as a major tool for doing contract work and it was our hope that you guys included us in your design of Unity Connect. We're not looking for employment in the traditional sense, which seems to be the sole purpose of Unity Connect. Sure we could just set up a user as a company (were actually working on doing just that) but doesn't really help if other businesses are not looking to Unity Connect to find development services.

    Also, even though you can create a company and attach employee's profiles, the purpose seems entirely set up for headhunting. I'd like to see that feature promote Business to Business services as well. I think a lot of Unity Developers out there will agree that the bulk of our bread and butter doesn't come from making it big with a blockbuster indie game developed with Unity.

    Hey Zenasprime,

    We do want to deliver features to support companies like yourself, but we are just in Beta and these take time :D We'll get to them soon!
