Following Content & Notifications
Following items allows you to receive notifications within the community, via email, and via push on the mobile app. You can automatically follow content that you create or respond to, based on your own user preferences, or choose to follow something that interests you. You can also get notifications for mentions and messages – you don’t have to worry about missing out.
Items that have been highlighted by your community leaders as being interesting or useful content. This is a great place to start when you are new to the community.
Find your content easily by visiting your profile. Want to view a Follower’s profile and see their latest contributions to the community? Access their profile by choosing their icon from your profile or from any of their content throughout the community.
We offer both a Basic Search and Advanced Search option. For Basic Search, just type and select your search criteria using the abbreviated search fields. Clicking on the magnifying glass will give you Advanced Search options. Narrow your search by Content, Member, Group, Time Period and more.
How do I participate with content?
Adding a Comment is easy. You’ll find the commenting box at the bottom of the item for text or attaching content.
Directly respond to members' posts, maintain a meaningful dialogue and open the door for others to weigh in.
Attaching content is quick and easy. We offer the option to Drag and Drop attachments, copy and paste or even add again from existing attachments that you’ve added before.
How do you feel about a posting? React. Let the community know that you are happy, confused, sad…. This participation affects the author’s reputation within the community and encourages them to create more great content for you to enjoy, or not, depending on how you reacted.
Rating an Item
Tell your fellow community members how you rate a content item. Give it stars.
Anywhere you see social media icons next to content, you can use them to share with your friends. If the member then signs up, you’ll be able to see who you referred if referrals are enabled in your community. You may receive perks like VIP promotion or access to unique content.
How do I participate with the community?
If you want a community member to join in on a discussion, try using the mention feature. Type @ followed by the member name and they’ll receive a notification.
Start a Club
Create your own managed section of the community, with your own item types, such as topics, calendar entries, images and more. Clubs can be public or private, joined or by invite only. Giving maximum flexibility. Charging for club entry is also possible. Check with your community staff to see if this is an option.
Private Messaging (Personal Conversations)
Have personal conversations one on one or invite as many members as you wish for discussions not visible to the other community members (except the admins, in some cases).
I want to edit my profile and my settings, too.
