    14:13:34 From Liselotte Peterson To Everyone:

                    I got one from a product team yesterday, saying that because their current users don't use it, they are not interested. Yet - I am trying to demonstrate the reason that they are not engaging, is because their is little content about their product in the first place

                    We spent time making sure that we did a few all company presentation so all teams understood what community is and the benefits before we launched.

                    In my company, we do count a question in community as a call deflection

    14:31:56 From HollyR To Everyone:

                    We use two big 'shiny' metrics that ELT resonate well with.

                    Community Influence & Case Deflection

                    We position them as 'potential' values. Meaning...up to $X.

    14:32:13 From Shauna McClemens (she/her) | Higher Logic Vanilla To Everyone:

                    Reacted to "We use two big 'shin..." with 💡

    14:40:12 From HollyR To Everyone:

                    For Case Deflection, we have come up with an agreed-upon formula based on past experience. It's not perfect, so we use 'up to $X' in the storyline.

                    Total traffic X cost per case X .25

                    This assumes up to $X in deflection -- members could have (not would have) opened a support ticket without community. The .25 reduces the total value by a reasonable amount and accounts for bots in the total traffic value.

                    Hope this helps!

                    We made the case using some of the ROI you have referenced, to invest in a dedicated Community Manager so this was not an issue

    14:51:25 From Shauna McClemens (she/her) | Higher Logic Vanilla To Everyone:

                    Love this — as an SME internally and externally, I started answering questions that arise in customer calls, on slack with staff, or wherever else in my travels by creating a post in the community and linking it instead of replying 1:1 — a bit more time consuming initially but then I can link that post forever and the dividends it pays really helps

    14:53:02 From Tony Reinke - Cribl To Everyone:

                    How do you handle when people feel more comfortable in Slack and stay in private channels and so the community misses out on the knowledge? Also for making the knowledge stored in Slack more public? Slack isn’t searchable from google, bing, duckduckgo, etc.

                    Based on these conversations and that recent popular post, I’d love to do a HLV Connect session just on engaging staff at some point…

    14:58:25 From Jenna Lansky To Everyone:

                    This has all been SO helpful. Amazing timing. We are getting ready to launch the beta test phase of our new community within the week, and getting more SMEs on board is the current task - thank you!!

    Hello @Heather Wendt

    I cannot view the recording; it shows wrong passcode.

    Could it be the password is changed from the one sent via email?

    Thank you.

  • @Firmy - I'm able to watch it. Would you be happy to try again? Be careful to check for unintended spaces if you are copying/pasting. That's usually what causes me problems.

    Hello @PiperWilson

    Thanks, I have tried to type the passcode, however, still receives the same error. Perhaps I have the wrong password. I have sent you a private message to check the passcode with you.

    Thank you.
