A terrific new feature has been added! When posting content, you now have the capability of adding one or more co-authors. This could be effective if you’re collaborating on an article with colleagues or posting on behalf of an organization and wish to credit each contributor.
Here’s an example of a feature authored by Peter Hansen and Joé Lloyd: Pro AV: Are Women Fully Welcome? Click through to the post and note how you can click on both the authors’ names.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Any Xchange member, whether an individual or organization, can be noted.
- When creating a post, the feature is located in the right-hand panel just below the Channel and Room tabs. Click “Contributors” and begin typing a name into the search box. Select the individual or organization once it appears.
- Once the post is opened, each member’s name will appear and be a clickable link to their profile, providing a great opportunity to follow the authors.
- The content will appear on the Author’s profile as well as on each of the contributors’ profiles.
