Using messages limits your audience to only the people you want. Messages show up in the Inbox of only the people you send them to.
Messages reside in the Inbox and cannot be moved.
Note: While messages is useful feature, nearly all topics in your community can be useful to others, so keep things public and work out loud whenever possible.
To send a message:
- When viewing your Inbox, click the Send Message button. Alternatively you can use Create > Message. Tip: When hovering over another user’s avatar or name and the avatar popup appears, there will also be a Message button available.
- You can add additional people to your direct message by clicking on the Select People link and clicking the checkboxes next to the names of the people you’d like to add.
- Type your message in the Message field. You can also upload a photo or @mention people in your community.
- Click the Send button.
