Getting to Know the QB Community Site

Welcome! We’re thrilled you’ve found our new QuickBooks Community. (In case you haven’t seen our official Welcome page, you can find it here.) It’s one of our top priorities to help you quickly and easily find everything (and everyone!) you’re looking for. Here are some tips for getting around the site without a hitch.

 

Here’s what has been happening:

Once you’ve signed in, you’ll land on your new, personalized QB Community home page. Look around! See the welcome message? Underneath is a list of everything that’s happened since you last visited the site. If other members have cheered your post, replied to your question or mentioned you in a comment, you’ll be notified right here. It’s easy to get caught up in just a glance! (By the way, if you ever need to make changes to your profile, click the My Profile button just below your list of notifications.)

 

Featured:Featured.pngHere is where we shine the spotlight on some of our favorite articles, resources and information on the site. Featured content might be a profile of an inspiring QB Community member or some news or updates about the site. You’ll find articles, questions and conversations, plus answers to all your questions about QuickBooks, too. (Want even more content? Scroll down the page to “Topics.” You’ll find it in a flash.)

 

Latest discussions & member stories:

This is your daily feed, where you’ll find all the latest posts and discussions taking place across the QB Community. Your feed is organized chronologically, with the most recent activity listed first. It’s a great place to browse around and discover what small business owners life you are thinking, wondering or strategizing about. Jump right in to read, comment or cheer!

 

Start a discussion:Start a discussion.gifIt’s pretty obvious (we hope!) what that bright green “Start a discussion” rectangle is for. Now that you’ve found it, dive right in! If you have a question to ask, a story to share, a connection to make or an idea to discuss, simply click that cool green button and start typing. We bet it won’t be long before the QB Community weighs in with feedback, advice, tips and more.

 

Featured members:
