@irach15 I reviewed and in Value Analytics, it is simply pulling the name that you set for Closed Accounts in Admin. Outside of updating the sheet yourself to change the username, there's no way to update the name only within Value Analytics.

Hi @HSCommunity, I have a signature set up in my email inbox and I am replying to you via email (this post) to test this out. The intended functionality is that when you click "Reply" on the email, it will open up with a blank email with instructions to type your reply above a specific line. For more information, there is the link to the workflow for Reply by Email: https://community.khoros.com/t5/Reply-by-email/The-Reply-by-Email-workflow/ta-p/108771 Signatures should not auto-populate in any email client but if you are finding that they do, I would recommend submitting a case with attached examples to Khoros Support.

In the previous blog post, we wrote about designing the community for effective rewards and recognition, starting with the user's successful first visit to the community. Now, let’s take a look at building a recognition program for your valuable users and superusers.
Before you start building your recognition program
It would be best if you gave your community time to grow. It could take six months to one year before you decide to start setting the foundation for your recognition program. Take this time to encourage returning users by thanking them for their time and recognizing their community contributions. You can do this by messaging them privately, publicly acknowledging their contributions in a community newsletter, or featuring their valuable posts.
During your community’s first year, it is important to begin setting a positive example for users with your moderation team. Effective moderation helps set a positive tone in the community and encourages users to follow suit. When deciding upon users to recognize in your future recognition program, you’ll want them to be upstanding users in the community, not just providing value but being an example other users can look up to. Getting those types of well-behaved users starts with great moderation from the start.
Consider prerequisites to starting your recognition program
When you begin planning your recognition program, you should have some users in mind whom you’d like to recognize their effective moderation and relationship building with users.
Despite this, begin with a set of guidelines. Who is the ideal candidate for this type of program? What criteria must they meet? Are they providing value to the community, or are they only statistically significant? A recognition program is special. You won’t just pick any superuser in the community, and you need to develop a set of criteria. Here is an example:
Must be a member for at least six months
Be a role model to others in the community (aka follow the rules!)
Contribute valuable discussions and insights to the community
It can be as simple as that, but it is important to set guidelines that these users must follow if they are admitted into the program. To keep their special status, they must continue to meet the criteria for the program. One option you should consider is a time-based approach, where you review and add/remove members to the program on a regular cadence (every six months or once every year). This is best to ensure you keep the program fresh and each member who is currently recognized meets the criteria.
How do we adequately reward these members that are admitted to a recognition program?
It is important that they are recognized using standard gamification tactics via a special rank and badge. You can use a private Group Hub to collaborate and build your relationships with your users. Simply giving your time or offering time from your company (product team, for example) is a valuable reward for these users.
These are the most important steps in starting your journey towards a great recognition program for your community. As reviewed in our Engage session , there are other tips, which cover creating a strategy for launching your recognition program.

Hope you are doing well! Here's my take:
Is the report inappropriate content the best way for moderation? When someone does that, does it automatically come down?
Users can select "Report inappropriate content" and it will generate an abuse report that moderators can view. The content is NOT taken down or rejected when this happens. Abuse reports are usually handled by the community's moderation team solely, and not by superusers or employees with elevated permissions.
Let's also define "team members", are these other employees? If you are looking at giving team members more power in the community and want them to begin helping out with abuse reports, these users will need to be able to moderate all content in the community.
I want to enable them to take down spammy messages instantly, today I see the abuse reports and can take things down, is there a setting in the role that I can turn on to let them take content down, ban users, etc?
You can set their permissions to ban users and mark posts as spam. Also be sure that "Spam management" is turned on (which you can check in Community Admin > Mod Tools tab).
Also, how do I turn on or off the ability to pin content? Is that a button in the role permissions? I didn't see it in the list?
To allow moderators to pin / float content to the top of the board, that permission is called "Float posts and topics for all users". In the post options menu, moderators will see the option "Float topic for all users".
How do you best set up moderators, with which documentation? Which features do you point them to?
You can best set up moderators by giving them the default "Moderator" role. To give them the appropriate documentation, do you have a list of moderator guidelines in your community? We have an example that I'll attach here that you can draw from, with instructions on what to do and what tools to use (and when).
