Forum Boards

Forum boards elevate and organize the Forum by grouping posts by topic, timeframe, member type, etc. Boards encourage community growth in niche interest areas and provide a solution for easier navigation and access to space-restricted Forum discussions and engagement.

Forum Boards were introduced in April 2024

All posts made before April 18, 2024 have been automatically added to a 'General' forum board. This 'General' board can be customized with branding and verbiage in the dashboard, and posts from within can now be moved to another board by admins in the dashboard or Forum moderators on the front end.

Access & Visibility of Boards

Each post must be assigned to a board and boards (and all posts within) can be accessible to all members or only to selected spaces.

Boards are displayed at the top of the Forum and members can read posts in each Board by selecting the board cover, or the board tag on the post.

Space Restriction

Individual posts cannot be restricted to spaces, but boards can be. If a board is restricted to a space, only those members in the space can see the Board cover and any posts within that Board.

Assign the access restrictions of boards in the dashboard.

Selecting & Assigning a Board

Members posting on the Forum select which board their post is assigned to at the base of their post creation. Only boards that they have access to will appear as selection options, and they cannot create new boards.

Changing a Post's Board Assignment

Forum moderators and admins can now move or change the board assignment by the author from the post or in the dashboard.

Forum (front end)

From the post list page, or within the post, Forum moderators will select the three-dot menu icon in the upper right and select 'Change board'.

Dashboard (back end)

From the Posts & Comments menu item, admins will select the box in line with the post or posts, and select the 'Change board' button at the top of the list

Settings & Customization

Dashboard Admins can add and customize the Forum Boards in the dashboard to match branding and language and set their access levels and visibility.
