Is there a way to connect a post to a place (we used to use share for this). For example, someone makes a post in the Pro forum that we want to appear in the stream for the Metadata place.

Hi @curtvprice, Unfortunately, sharing posts to multiple places is not available on this platform. 

Thanks Leslie. So you can't  @mention places either? I guess we'll just have to be good with tags.

Correct, at-mention can only reference other users or content at this time. When you enter an @ symbol, you'll see that described at the top.
