Learn how to send a response when you decline a mentorship request.
You can decline connection requests from within the email notification you received letting you know someone reached out to you, but if you want to respond to the user before declining their request, you'll need to go into the platform itself. Once there:
- Go to your Inbox.
- Open the message thread which you'd like to reply to then decline.
- Click the "View/Edit Request" text below the message itself.
- Click the link in the "If you want to decline this request entirely, click here" text.
- Enter your message to the user, then click the "Decline" button - the message thread will be closed and neither you nor the user will be able to communicate through it any longer.
