Featured Collections are live in the Success Community!

Shauna HLV Staff

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธย 

Happy Wednesday! You might notice the homepage and discussions page are suddenly looking a little extra spiffy! ๐ŸŽจ

That's because we've added two new widgets - Featured Collections and a Leaderboard.ย 

I'm incredibly excited about using Vanilla's new Featured Collections โ€“ it's a great way to showcase excellent content in your community. You can even target it at different roles to show specific content (using different collections) to various personas/roles. I strongly recommend that you check out the Content Collection doc on this new feature to see how it can work for your community.

We'll be reviewing the featured content on a regular basis, using criteria like # of comments, # of reactions as well as that certain something I like to call 'secret sauce' โ€“ stuff that's just awesome!ย โญ๏ธ

If there are any posts that you think should be featured, hit those reaction buttons, send a PM, or tag me (@Shauna) or my colleagues @PiperWilson or @Aaron

๐Ÿ† Congratulations to @skmetz @AndrewLapidus @bmaue @kimmieharrington @gxjansen and @Kirstie Macfarlane -- they are the first recipients of the brand new featured content badge:

Keep on posting awesome content to earn yours!ย ๐Ÿ’ช

What do you think about Featured Collections? Are you interested and have questions? Bring 'em on!ย 

Are you already using them? Show off and tell us how it's going!ย

    Small note: the featured item "Upcoming HLV Connect: Open Session Reminder" is about promoting an event that took place yesterday, not sure if that would still make it a useful featured item? :)

    Good call out @gxjansen! We'll be posting the call notes from that item and then it will be quickly replaced with our next event, ROI & Analytics -- stay tuned ๐Ÿ“ป

    I love the functionality on the recent discussions page that is built on the layout editor. Filtering to my followed categories is seamless and doesn't reload the rest of the page. Sneak preview of what discussion sorting & filtering will look like when that's released.
