Part of what makes a successful community valuable to members is a steady flow of new, engaging, and insightful content. Contributing content in the Board Community is an impactful way to provide your first-hand knowledge of the Board experience while also allowing you to get the rapid support you might need on your Board journey. There are multiple opportunities in Community to share content and engage with other members.
Posting in the Idea Exchange is open to logged-in members and does not require working with the Community in order to publish content. Before posting in the Idea Exchange, please be sure to search the Community to see if your idea has already been suggested.
Be descriptive in your idea's title, issue you're facing, resolution, or enhancement you'd like to see implemented by the Board Product team, as well as the impact of such resolutions for Board platform users. You are welcome to use visual aides, such as images or videos, to support your idea.
