🚨 New Feature Alerts

If you're wondering how you got this email, it's our newest feature - Default Followed Categories (don't worry this category will be highly curated!) You can read more about Default Followed Categories and learn how to set this up for your own community members here.

We also introduced a new feature that allows you to Export your user list in a quick and easy way!

πŸ†• While you're here, why not check out the other #NewFeatureAlert posts we've had lately?

I've been pretty excited about the new ability to filter discussion posts myself β€” this will allow your users to sort their discussion views to surface the most relevant content.

We'll be posting new features as they come out to make sure you are keeping your community up to date.

πŸ“Œ PS - this is a highly curated category meant to bring you the best of the HLV Success community and help you level up your own community, but if it's too noisy for you, you can always manage your followed categories on our brand new Followed Content page.
