Defining welcome boxes

Managing the welcome boxes is a right reserved for system administrators.

Define the welcome boxes displayed on the side of the activity feed (and optionally in the Overview) for better support of the users of your instance.

The different types of welcome boxes

There are four types of welcome boxes:

  • user : Put the profile of a user on top; this is generally the person in charge of the instance, the in-house Community Manager
  • links (up to 5 per block): Reference the key content, specific platform locations (space, directory, filtered search, etc.) or frequent links to external tools. Every type of URL works
  • text : A short introductory text mentioning the vision and objectives of the platform
  • integrated web media : for displaying rich content of the YouTube video type

Defining welcome boxes

These welcome boxes can be generated from the administration interface.

  1. Access the 'Welcome boxes' tab from the administration interface.
  2. Add a box (contact, text, link, integrated web page).
  3. Reorganize the blocks.
  4. Save individually after every language edition.
  5. Go to the next language edition.
