I am excited to announce that Discussions is now enabled for your community and in the community app!
You can find Discussions here. This “web” version also works well in your mobile device’s web browser, so if you’re on the go, you can still use the link above. Or, jump into the app, if you have that installed. Discussions is a great way to grow your community by bringing in users who only know about the app!
You can read more about how Discussions works on the help page. Admins and Discussions Moderators automatically have all of the moderation options. As you start to get participation from app users (a few posts have already come in!), keep an eye out for good moderator candidates. I can help you contact them as well (sometimes reaching out can be tough since they may not get Wall/talk notifications).
I encourage you to think about ways to promote wiki editing to the app & Discussions users. For example, if you have a page that lists your current projects, you can do a post every now and then that links to that page. And also think about how you can help foster high quality Discussions, by posting questions and prompts, running polls/surveys, and anything else you can think of.
We’ve just completed work on a great new moderation tool - the ability for any user to "report" a post so it will be reviewed by a moderator or admin. This feature will be coming to the Community App in an update at the end of this month. Next week we will also be adding the option for mods and admins to "lock" threads and prevent further replies.
Thanks so much for being willing to be an early adopter on this feature. Please use this thread for any questions, ideas and feedback. We want to hear from you and learn more about how you want to use this feature! We’ve got lots more work to do and I’ll be updating you as new additions come along.
