A lot of us do the bulk of our sharing today through email. The last thing we want to do is force you to change the way you work, which is why we've made it possible to post to your Employee Community groups via email. Here's how. 

Locate your email-in addresses. 

Every group and topic on Employee Community has a unique email-in address. To find the group and topic email addresses for your groups...

  1. Click the gear icon at the top, right-hand corner of your screen.

  2. Select Tools from the menu. 

  3. Scroll to the bottom section of the page under the Post By Email section to find the list of Employee Community emails that correspond to each group and topic. 

To email a post to Employee Community.

To create a new post via email, we'll need the email address for the group/topic you'd like to post to. You can find this using the directions in the section above this one. When you have your email-in address... 

  1. Paste your email-in address in the To: line of your email. 

  2. Enter your email subject line. This will appear as the title of your Employee Community post.  

  3. Add your desired text in the body of your email just like you would a regular Employee Community post. You can even add images, attached files, and URLs.

  4. Hit send. The email will then send to the Employee Community and post in the group(s)/topics(s) you selected. 

NOTE: You must send your email from the email address associated with your Employee Community account so that we can verify your Employee Community account and attribute the post authorship to you!
