The Qlik Community team has been hard at work making a number of enhancements to the community's user interface this month to improve our members' user experience. Here are our top ten enhancements of the last month.
1. Home Page Filters
The Recent Discussions feed on the Qlik Community Home Page now has a boards filter so that you can choose which boards you would like to see posts from, all in one place.
To use it, click on Select Board(s) to open a drop-down menu of community discussion boards. Check the box next to the ones you want to see posts from, and then click the Go button. The Recent Discussions feed will update, and the Recent, Unanswered, Unsolved, and Solved tabs will update to show posts of those types from the selected boards.
To reset the selected boards back to all, reopen the drop-down menu and click the Clear button.
2. Profile Hovercard
You can now hover of a member's username to see a nifty hovercard with info about that user, including the number of Posts, Likes, Solutions provided, and more.
3. Subscribe for Updates
We've added a callout for the Subscribe button to let members know you can subscribe to forums or boards that you'd like to get updates on.
Once subscribed, the callout disappears, and the Subscribe button turns into an Unsubscribe button which you can use to remove the subscription.
On forum pages, you can click on a Label listed in the Top Labels component to display a list of posts in that forum that have that label. You can subscribe to that particular label by clicking Subscribe in the green banner on that page.
Tip: You can now subscribe to the Qlik Events page to get notifications when new Events & Webinars are added, and many webinars are available On Demand after the live events have taken place.
6. Nested Replies Indented on Discussion Threads
On discussion threads, replies to replies now indent successively. A new reply to the original post will be less indented than a reply to a reply.
7. Document Filters
Document boards now have a Most Liked tab to sort documents by the number of Likes, and we've added the Select Filters drop-down for Most Popular and Most Viewed sorting like you've seen on discussion boards.
8. Document Comments Bug Fix
We've fixed a bug that was causing document comments to appear misaligned. They now appear aligned as expected.
9. Save Blog as Draft
For members who are blog authors, there is now a button to save a blog post as a draft to be retrieved later.Tip: To access your drafts (regardless of content type), go to My Profile and scroll down to the Drafts section. There you can open your draft to continue editing and publish, or you can discard the draft from here.
10. MVP & Luminary Combined Rank Icon
For those members who are Qlik Community MVPs as well as Qlik Luminaries, we've added a new rank icon to specially recognize their membership in both groups. Congratulations to our MVPs & Luminaries!
