Similar to documents, a blog post is intended to convey information to the community in the form of an article or story. It helps drives engagement through comments and allows readers to share their thoughts, opinions, or ask questions about the post. A good example of a blog post is the announcement of features for a product release or updates about an event.


Using blogs is a great way to share stories, posts for a specific topic, interview Q&A, event and product updates. Blogs can be posted and associated with Spaces, or Groups.


To create a blog post:

  1. Click Create > Blog Post.
  2. You can add a banner image to your blog post.
