Sharing a Post on Employee Community is simple. Whether you're sharing a quick text update, an important file, or a long-form newsletter, our Post compose form makes it easy to add and format content. Here's how.

To create a new Post.  

  1. From any Feed page, click the orange, new Post button in the bottom, right-hand corner of your screen. A blank, Post compose form will open.

  2. Add your content. Type in your title, text, and add any additional rich content that you'd like, including files, photos, videos, gifs, emojis, and more. Learn more about the types of content you can add in the sections below.  

To format your text. 

Using the editing toolbar at the top of the page, you can edit your text to include... 

  • Headers.

  • Bold text.

  • Italic text.

  3. If your URL is on a line of its own, your URL will likely embed a nicely formatted URL card. However, if it does not automatically embed, click your link to open the link formatting options and then click Embed

To attach a file.
