Community Changes and Feature Definitions Details

As we mentioned in the previous announcement there are few similarities and changes you should know about.

Below is a list of:

  • The most common user actions in a support community

  • How you discovered that user action in HCC

  • The new way you will find that user action in the new community

  • And details on the user action in the new community.

Here is a preview of the new designs for these pages:

In HCC there was one leaderboard based on total points.

In the new community you will find the following leaderboards: Top solution Authors, Top Kudoed Authors, Top Repo Contributors and Top Community Article Contributors.

Additionally, you can view your rank level on your own profile page.

The Leaderboards & Badges in the new community will have more information at migration.
