Community Tips: Venture Outside of the Open Forum

By Ginny Butsch posted 01-21-2020 16:26

This is one part of a series of blogs about maximizing your experience with our online Community, not only to help newbies get their bearings but to also help experienced users learn more and take the next steps, or assist others.

Today, I'll tell you more about smaller, interest-based communities outside of the Open Forum. If you log in to your account on our website, head over to the "Community" tab on our blue navigation bar and drop down to "Browse Communities." There you will find an assortment of other groups that you may be interested in perusing. Screenshot__677_.pngIf you see a blue "join" button next to the group title, it means you are welcome to join the group and participate in discussions. Other groups might display as "view only" or "closed" if you are not eligible to join. If you are already a member of the group, you will not see either of these options, just the title of the group.

Take a look and find a smaller group of people to connect with who are interested in more of the same things that you are!
