Members and Administrators can communicate by creating Account Group Posts. This is done on the Posts tab of the Communications content block. Posts can be pinned so that they always show at the top. Posts can also include Polls that can be voted on.
Members can view and create posts via the Posts tab of the Communications content block in the Shopping Cart. Administrators can view and create posts via the Feed tab of the Groups screen in the administrative console.

Finding the Communications Content Block

Members will log into the Shopping Cart and navigate to Account Groups. They can then select a group to view it.


The group page will appear and the Communications content block will be shown.

The Posts Tab

The Posts tab allows the user to create and edit posts. Posts can be pinned and they can contain polls. The user can view the posts of other members. They can comment and like, and if there is a poll, they can also vote.

Creating a Post

Input the content for the post and click the Post button. If you want to pin the post (meaning it will always show on the top), select Pin Post, and optionally include an end date for the pin.

Viewing a Post

The post now appears. It can be deleted or unpinned via the buttons by the author. It can be commented on and liked by all members.

The Feed Tab - Administrators

Administrators can do everything via the administrative console that a Member can do via the shopping cart. They can also delete any post.

Administrative Use of the Feed Tab

Administrators can view and interact with posts and polls on the Feeds tab much like how Members can view and interact with posts and polls on the Posts tab. One important difference is that Administrators can edit any post, and Members can only edit their own posts. Please see above for instructions, as they can applied to the corresponding screens in the administrative console.
