Community is our internal social network. Its core architecture is based on many modern social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, and others. You will see all the usual things: posts, comments, likes, groups, and of course notifications.
When you open the community tab you see the posts feed. At the top of the screen, you can see a scrollable list of the groups you are a part of. By default, any user is added to the Announcements, Support, Share, and MyPod groups. Tapping on the bell will open your activity screen with all the notifications from the community. The search button allows to search for people and groups.
This group is private to the pod members. Only people in the specific pod can see and interact with its content. Note that content from My Pod is not shown in the Feed.
This is a public group where people can share their experiences during the program. Posts here usually get a lot of feedback from other community members. The group serves as the place for people to exchange their thoughts and ideas.
This group is also public and available for posting for everyone. The group is reserved for technical issues with the app and is constantly monitored by our support team to make sure users get all the support they need.
...is used by members of the PQ team to notify users about important updates in the app or in their program.
Modes of the feed
You can switch between three feed modes: Following, Trending and New. Please note that during the 6 Weeks Program you will only have access to Following and Trending modes as they are limited to your program group
Here you can see posts from groups and people you follow. Posts are displayed in chronological order.
This area consists of all posts that had a large number of interactions within the past 24 hours. You don't necessarily have to be following someone for the post to show here.
This global section becomes available after completion of a program and consists of participants across all the programs. It's also chronological.
Whenever you tap on the group selector at the top of the Community screen you get to the group. Each group has its own feed of posts and comments so it's easier to follow the context of that group. If you are part of the group the posts from that group will automatically appear in the Following section of your main feed.
How to create a new post
Some groups like MyPod or Share allow you to create your own posts to take to people in the community. To create a post just visit a group and tap on "Post to ..." widget.
In posts, you're able to:
- add text, images and links
- tag or mention other people (both in posts and comments)
It's important to note you would mention people by adding @, before typing their username. This will trigger the user search widget to appear. Tagged/mentioned people will also receive a notification.
How to Like or Comment on a post
Each post has like and comment button. Tap on like button to like the post, tap on comment button to add your comment. Note that when you like or comment on someone's post they will receive a notification.
When adding a comment you can tap Reply to mention someone you want to get a notification about the conversation
How to add a comment to the post
When in Feed tap on post text or on the comments button next to the like button. Start typing in Add Comment section at the bottom. Tap Post to submit your comment.
How to manage group notifications
Some groups allow you to manage their notifications individually. To disable or enable notifications from a specific group, open that group, and tap on the notifications button to the right of the group name.
