Before you begin
Anyone can follow a community as long as the community is publicly accessible; you do not have to be a community member to follow a public or moderated community. If you are a community owner or creator, then you are already following the community. You cannot follow a restricted community unless you are a member of the community.
If you do not want to follow an entire community, you can follow specific community content to get updates about that content. For example, if you are interested only in receiving notifications about updates to a community's wiki, you can follow the entire wiki or a specific wiki page. To follow community content, open that content from the community and look for the Follow
button. Click the button to view the options available for following that content.
To follow a community, complete these steps.
- From the Public Communities, I’m a Member or I’m an Owner views, navigate to the community that you want to follow.
- Click Follow this Community.
What to do next
You can view the communities that you are following by selecting the I'm Following
view. You can also keep track of updates in the communities that you are following from the Home page by selecting Filter By
in the I’m Following
If you no longer want to receive notifications about the latest updates to a community, you can stop following it at any time. To stop following a community, open the community and click Stop Following this Community
