In the words of our application, "Communities is the place where groups of people can come together to connect and exchange about common interests, hobbies and goals."
One example could be a blackboard where you trade used things - you can write posts with formatted text, attach images or documents or provide links.
Community members can then comment and react on it. If you like the community you may want to invite more of your colleagues to it and before you can blink you have a group of people together that share some interestes and now have a space where they can exchange, interact and collaborate
You can see on your homepage whenever new content arrives in your communities.
You don't need to be the only admin in a community just because you happen to have created it. Make more members admins - they can change central aspects of a community. Maybe you want a gated access to your community? Then colleagues need to request to join. It is also possible to have private communities where you only join by invitation.
What does it mean? We don't expect any issues with communities but we're currently still working on it - however, we couldn't wait to put it into your hands and we hope that you can already enjoy the features that are already available.
So, if not already done, your intranet admin(s) can activate communities in the "General Settings" section - the first 5 communities are on the house!
