Getting started with communities

The number of communities you create should be customized according to the size of your project team. If you have a smaller team, it's better to keep the number of communities small and let the users explore and discover which communities are best suited for them. This will help ensure that everyone is able to find the information they need quickly and easily.

Initial communities for important teams/departments

To get started with creating communities, it's best to have the most important teams or departments initiate the process by creating apps and inviting the corresponding target groups. A welcoming post and initial content will encourage others to participate without the fear of being the first to post, as it's easier to read and engage with content than to become active yourself in a new environment.

Help community

Starting a new project can be challenging, and that's why it's a great idea to provide users with help when they're using Haiilo. One way to accomplish this is by creating a community for your Haiilo experts to answer any questions that may arise. You can use a forum app to facilitate this and encourage other users to contribute their own ideas and solutions. Along with this, you can also offer CI-compliant guides on important functions through a wiki feature. Additionally, other apps can be integrated to further enhance your users' experience.
