The content in any community is only valuable if people who need it can easily find it. Fortunately there are some good capabilities built in to the Green Circle help you find what you are looking for fast.


Home Page Tiles:

Starting at the home page, there are tiles with hot links to the most frequently accessed spaces available in the Green Circle like the Product Forum or Industry Perspectives. A few of the spaces are only accessible to members of the VMTurbo Customer Group - if you are a member, you must be logged in to access them.


Navigation links on the Menu Bar:

The top menu bar is visible regardless of where you are in the community. Click on the drop down to see Forums, Customer Access spaces or Browse to access lists of content, people and places that are available.



Even with navigation links, search is the most versatile and fastest way to find what you are looking for. Simply click on the magnifying glass search icon in the top menu bar and start typing. You will immediately begin seeing Suggestion results pop up as you type - you can also click on the History or Bookmarks tab in that window to narrow your search to previously visited or bookmarked results only. Content suggested results are in the main section with People and Places on the right, you can simply scroll down to view the list and click on the link if you see what you want.


To access detailed search results and filtering options, type your keyword(s), hit Enter and you will go to the detailed search results. Filter options are presented on the left side to help further refine your results by: time, author, place, type of content and more.


You can easily search within a place or a group by navigating to the Content section there and clicking on the "Type to filter by text" box at the top of the content list window and entering your keywords in that box



Finally, if there are places or content you want to get back to easily, you can follow or bookmark them, using the links in the upper right when viewing the post or place.To find content you have bookmarked click on the search icon as described above and click on the Bookmarks tab in the search window.
