1. Complete Your Profile


Your profile is valuable in so many ways. Many of the fields you complete can be used in search or as filters to help other like-minded users connect with you. It also provides some context around how you interact with Alfresco (product, version, job title), which can help other users answer your questions appropriately. You'll want to update your preferences, should you want to keep all community notifications in the community, rather than in your email. 


To update your profile, click your avatar image in top right menu and select "Edit Profile."


2. Follow a Space


Keep informed in your areas of interest by Following a space. If you're working in ECM, just click Follow on the ECM home page.



You can then set up streams of people or spaces that you follow on the news page


3. Let us know what you're working on. 


We've created a post here to share what you're working on currently. You can chat with other members who may have similar interests (or pain points) and exchange ideas. Get to know each other beyond your location and title - and see if you can help or be helped!

There are quite a few different ways to find topics that interest you in the community. You can use the search icon in the top right hand corner or ask a question on the homepage of the space (ECM, App Dev, etc) that you're visiting.


If you're interested in seeing the most recent activity in a space, use the Activity tab.



This will give you a list of the newest activity - new discussions or blogs posted, new comments, documents updated, etc. 



If you want to see ALL the content or narrow down the type of content you're seeing, use the Content tab. This will give you a list of all ECM content, regardless of type (blog, question, poll, etc).



You can then select the content type you'd like, or the category you'd like to focus on. You can also filter by action (marked helpful, marked outdated, etc) or by particular tag. Tags are free-text, so just start typing and see what comes up.
