The Welcome Checklist is a new, customizable way for you to introduce new members to your community, launching the week of May 23rd.
The Welcome Checklist allows you to easily curate content and features for your members to explore. It will be visible to all members by default and will come with a number of options for you to edit as desired.
Here's what your members will see:
We're kicking off a Hosts-Only Preview on the web starting Wednesday, May 11th. This will give you a chance to get familiar with it and adjust before it's enabled for all members during the week of May 23rd.
Once the Hosts-Only preview period ends, in Discovery, the Welcome Checklist will appear in the carousel and on the right-hand side. On the main Activity Feed, it will appear in the feed and on the right-hand side.
The Welcome Checklist will only exist at the Network level. The Welcome Section will remain at the Groups and Courses level.
As a Host you will be able to customize your Welcome Checklist with your own Articles, posts, Courses, Groups, Events, Topics or Polls, as well as Mighty Suggestions by going to Network Settings > Content > Welcome Checklist.
You will be able to move the content around by selecting the three dot menu next to each article and changing the order.
To add a post to your Welcome Section, navigate directly to the post you want to feature when you're on the web. Click on the three dot menu in the upper right corner and follow the prompt that says "Add This To..."
From here, you'll see the option to add the post to either your Welcome Checklist or your Featured Section. To remove a pinned post from your Welcome Checklist, tap on the option to "Unpin" the post or uncheck the box.
If nothing currently exists in your Welcome Section, five pre-selected “Mighty Suggestions” will appear in the Welcome Checklist to Members (Introduce Yourself, Adjust Your Notifications, Cheer something, Add a comment, Start a Chat). If you have an existing Welcome Section, it will automatically transfer into the Welcome Checklist.
If you are a Host creating a new Mighty Network, we have provided you with a draft Welcome Post inside your Mighty Checklist (Publish Your Welcome Post). Once you personalize that drafted Article and publish it, it will appear automatically in your Welcome Checklist.
Here is what your members will see when your Welcome Checklist is live:
Members will receive notification reminders if they haven’t yet completed their Checklist (4 days and 10 days after they first click into the Welcome Checklist). If a member never interacts with the Welcome Checklist, we will not send a reminder.
Hosts and Moderators can toggle on or off notifications for when a member completes the Welcome Checklist via Personal Settings > Notifications.
If you'd prefer not to have a checklist, for now, you can remove all items to hide it entirely. If you later change your mind, re-adding any items will turn the checklist back on for all members.
