With June, we kicked off the Summer season and closed out the first half of 2019. The Community team made quite a few updates to the user interface, automated some processes, and made performance enhancements as well. Let's take a look at some of the highlights.
1. Automated Welcome Email for New Members
New community members will now automatically receive a welcome email from the Qlik Community team two days after joining. The welcome email provides links to getting started resources and places of interest in the Community to help new members get up to speed quickly and find what's most relevant to them.
2. New Notification Settings
Four new notification settings make it easy to control whether or not you receive different types of notifications. If you turn any these notifications off, you will still get notifications in your community notification feed, which you can access through the bell icon in the page header.
3. Added Social Icons to Events & Webinars Cards
The Events & Webinars page showcases upcoming events and webinars you can register in advance for, as well as listing webinars available to watch on demand, anytime. We've added social sharing icons to each event card, making it easy for you to invite a friend or share events of interest with your network.
4. Meetups Page Now Updates Automatically
The Meetups page displays the upcoming Meetups being held around the world. This page now displays the upcoming events automatically, so it is always up to date.
The Sort By Filter is now available on each blog, allowing you to sort blog posts by Most Popular, Most Viewed, Original Post Date, or Latest Reply, just like you can in other areas of the community.
7. Updated Labels in Community Corner
We've updated the labels on posts in the Community Corner in order to better categorize content. In many cases, the labels used were converted to tags, and new labels applied. Labels work best when few are used as a general classification, and then more tags are used for detailed classification.
8. Performance Improvements
We also made some performance enhancements and resolved an issue that was causing Firefox browsers to load slowly.
