About Community Nav

The “Community” tab is your members' central home hub, where learning and community engagement come together for ongoing interaction through discussions, access to resources, events, and more. You can use “Sections” and “Apps” to curate your community spaces in this area. 

How It Works

The Community area is designed for continuous engagement, ensuring that there's always a pulse of activity and a sense of belonging. Members can navigate through organized spaces tailored to their interests, goals, stage or membership within this area. 

These spaces are equipped with a suite of apps, encompassing chat channels, forums, collections of content or embedded integrations for a truly unique and robust community experience. 


How To Design Your Community Space

Below, we’ll cover the building blocks for designing effective community spaces.

  1. Design a structure: First, you need to decide on the types of spaces you want to create. Some common types of spaces communities choose to design are: 
    1. Stage: This means informing and guiding members based on their community journey. For example, many communities create a “Start Here” space to help orient new members. It can include community guidelines, a set of actions to complete, an introductions channel, etc.
    2. Value: Meant to deliver a focused set of value. This will be unique to your community, but it could be used to organize content collections or a set of resources for coaching. For example, you may have a content area that includes multiple Collection Apps for a Newsletter, Podcast, etc. 
    3. Conversations: The most common is a space facilitating a focused conversation set. This can either be facilitated through the Feed App or Channel App. 
    4. Group: This type may combine conversations, value, and stage but tailor the space to a specific group. For example, you may choose a “Free” space and a “Pro” space to have separate areas for different memberships.
  2. Add Sections: Once you’ve decided on the structure, you can add Sections, the container for your community space. To add a Section, click on the “+” icon in the top right corner of your left navigation. 
  3. Add Apps: Finally, add the Apps and define the access to complete your community setup. The apps can be feeds, channels, collections, content, links, or integration embeds. To add an App, select the “+” button at the top right of your left navigation OR the “+” icon that appears when you hover over a Section. You can then drag and drop Apps between Sections to organize them.
