    Tip: How to inbox a Hello community member from a thread

    Every Friday I will be posting tips to support you in connecting more effectively with your colleagues nationwide in the Hello community.

    The first tip is how to inbox a community member via Hello's in mail function.

    Inboxing also known as private messaging is how you respond to a community member directly and privately. Inboxing is great when you have a question that just pertains to you or you would like to build a relationship with a person.

    You access the inbox function by going to the upper left hand side (your right) of the poster's message where it says "reply inline," pulling down the arrow, and choosing the second choice, which says, "reply to sender."

    Take the time to inbox someone today, start building your network by introducing yourself to a person you've never met in person before. Let us know how it goes by replying to this post.

    Friday Tip: How inbox a community member from their profile

    There are three ways to do this --by hovering over their name in a discussion thread, by clicking on their picture and going to their profile, or by searching for them in the Hello Contact List.

    Example one:

    Go to a member's profile and hover the cursor over their name when it appears in a discussion thread. The request contact and send message options should come up, choose message.

    Example two:

    Click on the person's name. You will see add contact and a box with three dots. Click on the box with three dots.

    Example three:

    If you don't see the person on a thread, but you know they are on Hello go to header and click on Find Members, then click on Contact List, and do a search for their name or email.  When their name comes up click on send message.

    Start building your network. Take some time to tell a community member Hello.

    Friday Tip: How to respond to a thread on a digest email on your phone

    We are all super busy. I don't know about you, but I typically access my email on my phone. Can you do this on HELLO? Yes, of course and there are two ways to do this -by pressing reply all via email on the top of the message or by pressing reply all via email at the bottom of the message.

    Example one:

    Scroll to the message you want to respond to and hit reply all via email at the top of the post.
