When you enter any department on the app, the first thing you see is the Public Feed. Interaction is what Quilter’s Thread is all about and it’s very easy to be part of it.
First of all, if you like a department or shop and want to receive notifications, touch the heart at the top right corner of the feed and you’ll be “following” that area.
In any department you can scroll through the feed and read and see posts from others.
If you see something you like, go ahead and hit the thumbs up button to indicate that you like it.
Comment on a post: If you have a comment to add, touch the talk bubble button, a screen comes up that says “Write a comment.” Touch that box, your keyboard will appear, so you can type your comment. When you’re done, touch the Submit button and your comment posts.
Start a Thread: To start a discussion, touch the interact button. You’ll be prompted that your comment can be public or private. Private comments will go to the person who is responsible for that department, shop, whatever. When you clear the prompt screen by touching the X, you’ll see that the comment defaults to “Public” if you want it to be “private” thought the private button.
When you touch the screen that says “Join the conversation,” a keyboard will appear to type your thoughts. If you have a sentiment to express, you can touch the stars to indicate how strong your feelings are.
If you want your post to also be posted to your Facebook and/or Twitter account, touch the broadcast button and indicate which you want. For the automatic posts to work, you will need to have your Facebook and Twitter accounts entered into your profile. (If you can’t figure it out, you’ll hear about it in next week’s tutorial.)
If you touch the camera icon, you’ll have the option of adding a picture to your post. To take a picture, select that button and your camera will be activated to take a picture. If you don’t like the picture select re-try and do it again. If you like the picture, choose ok and follow the screen prompts to post it. When your post is ready, simply touch the “submit” button and you’re good to go.
If you want to post a picture from your library, touch the camera button, select the “Choose from Library” button, and select the picture you want from your library. Again, when your post is ready, touch the submit button.
Remember, the interaction features work for any feedback channel- those in the Resources Department, shops, guilds, whichever.
Next Tuesday’s Tutorial will cover the Profile features in the app.
As always, if you have any questions at any time, contact us through the app or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
