    Create Content by email

      Do you know you can create content from your email directly on your Group/Community in BMC Communities?

       

      1. Go to the Community/Group you're a part of

      • Locate the Under Actions panel on the page. You can only see it when you're logged in; you might have to scroll down a bit.
      • you have the 'Create by email' option and select type of content you want to create

      2. Send yourself the VCardcreate by email vcard contact.png

      • A VCard is a Unique 'To email address' for that Community/Group for the Specific content type you chose
      • It is Sent to you as a Contact by email
      • Save the Contact to your address book

       

      3. Email to create Content

      • Once you have the contact in your Address book you can shoot an email to create a Discussion/Document.

      Definitely not as rich as doing it from the Web/ Mobile - but hey, still a step towards online collaboration.

      Didnt find a doc for this usecase. Small but may be a significant step to help along 'emailers' to the #socbiz world.
