Within the last month Microsoft introduced its new Microsoft Dynamics Community site. From the design to function, there are some great new enhancements that now make it easier for new members to join, navigate through and search the site, and stay up-to-date on relevant information. A few of the newest updates include:
We've made it much faster to join the Microsoft Dynamics Community -- now all it takes is to create a screen name (which is used for the URL to your profile page), enter your name, and select a product group to join.
JOIN PRODUCT GROUPS
Participating in a product-specific community (such as asking a question in a forum, commenting on a blog, or creating a subscription) now requires you to join the group. New members can join right from the signup page. Existing members will see an orange "join" button at the top of the page -- click it, and you're ready to participate.
The navigation has been updated to provide quick access to everything available, whether you're on the home page or within a product community.
You'll also find three new options in the upper-right of the site: Conversations, Favorites, and Settings. Conversations are private messages you've received from other members. The "Favorites" menu displays any blogs or forums that you've added as a favorite.
You can also favorite individual forum posts, blog articles, and videos and access them from the "Favorites" tab on your Profile page, available via either clicking your name in the upper right area or by clicking the "View All" link on the "Favorites" menu.
Use the Settings link to set preferences such as your time zone, email preferences, and manage your subscriptions.
You can now filter your search results by the type of information you're looking for, author, tags, and date.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans. You can find me at Data Masons’ Booth, #742, and as one of the Official Convergence Bloggers supporting The Social Experience, you know where to find me socially.
