Welcome to the Khoros Community!
The mission of this online community is to provide a peer-to-peer and direct support channel for people cultivating enterprise communities on the Khoros platform. It is a central for education and thought leadership on best practices, where we also ideate with customers directly on how to improve and extend the product platform.
Please remember that you may not share your registered account with any other individual, entity, or organization.
Enterprise communities are created by business organizations for their customers, partners or other enthusiasts.
While our community is aimed at Khoros customers and users, we welcome everyone with an interest in enterprise communities, as long as you observe these community rules:
1. Be respectful. Respect people's time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing what you've learned so far in your experimentation or prior research. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive.
2. Be relevant. Make sure your contributions are relevant to the mission of the community, to the specific discussion style and topic where you post. Please do not post duplicate messages in different areas of the community to avoid fragmenting discussion. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations are rarely relevant. If you have something you want members to join, participate in, or buy, ask us first.
3. Keep your word. Don't post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret, or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party.
4. Protect privacy - yours and others'. Don't share anything about yourself or your organization that you would not want to see on a road-side billboard. Share your business email address if you wish, but don't post personal information-your own or anyone else's (including contact information or any). content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent.
5. Remember, this is user-generated content. You'll find plenty of good advice here, but remember that your situation, configuration, or implementation may vary from that of the individual sharing a solution. Some advice you find here may even be wrong. Apply the same good judgment here that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet.
By using these forums you agree to follow these rules as well as the full Terms of Service for the Khoros Community. We thank you, and your fellow community members thank you.

Product feedback is always welcome, and we want to ensure that you understand how your ideas impact and are incorporated into the future of our products. Before you submit new product ideas or feedback, please review the Product Ideas Submission Guidelines.
We always place customer feedback at the top of our list of priorities and our Product Ideas boards (Community, JX and Care) are an example of how we capture your innovative ideas and feedback about our solutions.
In order to make this process as productive and transparent as possible, we want to share the general criteria by which we will be evaluating submitted ideas to help guide your submissions.
We will be evaluating your ideas based on the following criteria and giving feedback accordingly. You can expect to receive feedback on your submission from our Product Management team in the form of status changes and follow up comments.
1. Reach of Impact
How many customers would benefit?
How often would they use the suggested feature?
2. Roadmap Fit
Does this fit strategically within our current product/service offerings?
3. Community feedback
Is this idea getting noticed (via recent votes/comments/kudos)?
Does the idea have at least 5 votes?
How long will it take to implement the idea?
Is there a workaround available today?
5. Quality of submission
Is the submission well written and easy to understand?
Does it contain no more than one idea?
Is this a new idea or something that has been submitted already?
We encourage you to submit your ideas for Community, JX and Care, to us to help us continually innovate and make the Khoros solutions better for all of our customers. Be sure to search the community for existing ideas that may be similar to yours and review our submission guidelines prior to submitting your own. If indeed you do find similar ideas, we encourage to comment or vote on those rather than submitting a new one.
We want this to be the best community it can possibly be. So let us know what you think, or how we can help improve your experience on Atlas by sharing your ideas on the Atlas Suggestions idea board. We also encourage you to share any issues or potential bugs you spot on Atlas in in our Idea board. We actively monitor this area for new suggestions and feedback and will review all the open ideas monthly.
Before you get started, make sure you review the following information.
Search for an existing Idea in the Idea Board. Instead of spending time on creating a post, first search for an existing post that is similar to your idea. We try to make this as easy as possible. When you start typing an Idea Subject in the submission form, we display similar ideas in the dropdown for you to select. If one already exists, simply visit the post, give it a Kudos to indicate your support for the idea, and add any additional conversation or comments to the topic. (If you submit an idea that already exists, we will simply merge the ideas to ensure that conversations are richer.)
Draft your new idea and submit it. The more we know about your idea – who it’s for, what the motivation is, and what the actual item is, the more accurate we’ll be when it comes time to prioritize and size it. Be sure to include as much of the following information as possible:
The Role: What type of user is the feature for?
The Outcome: What is the problem that you are trying to solve or the outcome the user is hoping to accomplish?
The Benefit: What is the overall value and importance of the feature?
The Context: Any additional information like screenshots or examples from other products is always helpful
Subscribe to idea boards and engage with other ideas. You can subscribe to an Idea Board or even specific labels in that Idea Board to be notified of new activity. Simply select that “Subscribe” button on the Idea Board (or Filter by a label and Subscribe), and you’ll be notified of updates. Hint: Check your notification settings to ensure that you are notified when activity happens on ideas you care about. Be sure to share your own perspective on ideas as our product team will review and evaluate ideas with your engagement and feedback as one of the criteria.
