Often times, there are discussions, library resources, and blogs you want to follow along with (discussions) or save for later reference. You can do this by "following" the content inside of the opened thread, library entry, or blog. To "follow" the content, click the star next to "Follow" on the right hand side of the thread, by the subject line.
To follow a discussion, click on the star next to the subject line of the thread. If you reply to the thread, you will automatically be marked as "following" and will start receiving emails from the thread.
To see a repository of all of the content you've "followed" in the past, navigate to your profile -- My Connections -- Following. To see content you've "followed" in the past, visit the "Following" section of your profile.
To stop following a post, simply click on the star so it is no longer highlighted. To stop receiving all following notifications, turn off your "Participation Emails" in your Email Preferences.
If you posted a discussion or reply, then realize you'd like to change the content inside of that post, you can "edit" it.
Navigate to your post or reply, click the down arrow next to the "Reply" button, then click "Edit." Make your changes, then save the post.
Tagging allows discussions, libraries, and blogs to be organized and easily identified. When you click a tag on a discussion, library entry, or blog post, you'll be brought to a site-wide search repository of all of the other content that tag is applied to.
In the body of content (ie: blog article, discussion post, library entry), initiate the tagging process by clicking on the hashtag or by typing "#" and then start typing the keyword. As you type, a list of existing, suggested tags will appear. If you don't see the tag you are looking for, you can create your own new tag. You are able to add tags to your brand new post or you can reply to an existing post and add a tag in your reply.
Helpful tip: Do not use spaces when typing, as this will prevent hashtag creation. Additionally, if adding your own tag, press Enter to create it after spelling it out.
The Search Bar
The search bar is located in the right-hand side of the navigation bar, and is the best way to help find content, such as discussion threads or library files, on the Trimble Community. Login to view expanded results.
The search results can be refined to provide more targeted results. You can adjust results by community, type of content, tagged content, date ranges and relevancy.
Helpful Tip: by selecting the "User Content" Category, you will have the ability to filter content further by type (library entry, discussion thread, blog, etc.)
