Your community dashboard is the place you will use to manage your entire community platform.

Here, you’ll be able to add new posts, topics, manage members and also manage community settings.

Let’s take a closer look at your community dashboard.

In this article:

Understanding your Home feed

Your Home feed is where we will show all posts from topics you currently follow. They should be organized from “Newest” -> “Oldest”, based on the date they were published.

I can’t view any posts, why?

If your home feed looks empty like this you can follow a few steps:

  • Make sure you already created posts for your community

  • Make sure you are following topics that contain posts


See? Managing your community area is super easy and simple.
