Qualys Community Improvements

Blog Post created by Keith Shaw Employee on Oct 1, 2010

We released a few more improvements to the Qualys Community user experience.

 

Due to popular demand, we added the ability to share links from the Qualys Community on Facebook.  Everywhere you see the "Share this" link, you may now select the Facebook icon to share that page with all your friends on Facebook.

Of course, you can still share with Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and E-mail too!

 

New members will also experience an improved sign up process with fewer steps and clearer instructions.  We added a note during the sign up process to make everyone aware that the Username you choose will be visible to everyone -- it's recommended not to use an email address for your Username.

 

The process for joining social groups, where sets of community members can interact around a specific topic area, is now streamlined.  For public social groups, such as the regional The specified item was not found., you join in a single click from the group homepage.  For private social groups, such as the ones for each Qualys training course that course attendees are invited to join, we've reduced the number of steps to accept the invitation.  Social group members can choose to receive  email notifications of new activity in a given group by selecting the Receive Email Notifications  link from the Actions box on the group's homepage.

 

Lastly, we fixed an intermittent issue for Firefox users that prevented the Share this link from showing up, and we cleaned up a few graphical inconsistencies to improve the overall member experience.

 

Cheers,

Keith
