A quick introduction, I'm SamCreek, responsible for the communities platform and strategy here at CA. I've been working with Luu and Octavie through the migration and you may have seen me pop up in a thread or two.
Tomorrow night at 9:30 PM PST/12:30 AM EST/4:30 AM GMT we will be loading the comments to the ideas and we will be attributing them to the original author. The community will be available during this time but the author's of the comments will be disabled briefly while we do the migration and then re-enabled. We expect the migration to take about an hour in total.
The migration will show up as new activity, so please be prepared. The comments themselves have been transformed for the new system and in that process some links have been removed. If you find any issues with the comments please let LuuLe, Octavie or myself know and we will correct them. If you would like to edit a comment that you authored, please feel free to do so after the migration.
You've recently joined the CA Communities platform and one of the first things you need to do is to find and follow your product Communities.
Following your product Community will help you receive notifications, updates regarding that Community. More important, following and posting in the right Community will help you get answers faster from your peers.
Joining and following your Community can be done in 2 different ways:
Option 1: Joining a Community from the Communities directory
From there, you will be taken to a directory of all of the available CA Communities. Here, you can use the "type to filter by text" bar to search for specific Communities; for instance, "CA Automic Community"
Click on the gear symbol next to your Product Community
From there, a pop-up will appear prompting you about how you would like to follow the Community with the "Following" box checked.
From there, a pop-up will appear prompting you about how you would like to follow the Community
You can follow a Community via:
the following stream: this box is checked by default . The "Following Stream" updates do not send emails or notifications unless you've selected the email option in your Preferences.
the custom stream: in this example, "My people Stream" has been created to get updates on people I'm following. If this option is checked the updates will be populated in my Stream.Take a look to the "Custom Streams" document to see how you can create your own stream.
the inbox: this will notify you directly of any activity taking place with your Community. Those notifications will be sent directly to your inbox. .
For more information on the different types of following and preferences, please read the Followingdocument.
Of course you can stop following a community at anytime by clicking on "Stop Following"
Now , let's make sure you are following the right Community.
