How to change the audience for your post

 

Learner experience will vary based on the group settings in your community. This article describes the three main groups scenarios to be familiar with. 

Scenario Public Visibility Group-only Posting Learner Experience
#1  ON OFF

View all posts in the community, including other groups' posts.

Create posts with either your "Group #" or the "Public" tag.

#2 OFF ON

Only view posts from your group and public community posts.

Create posts only with your "Group #" tag.

#3 ON ON

View all posts in the community, including other groups' posts.

Create posts only with your "Group #" tag.

#4 OFF OFF

Only view posts from your group and public community posts.

Create posts with your "Group #" tag or "Full Community" tag.


Group tag (audience selector)

  1. If Groups are enabled, and the Group-Only Posting setting is OFF, you will see a drop-down audience selector just below the lower-left hand corner of the post editor. If groups are enabled and group-only posting is ON, the instructor will see the selector, but learners will not; instead, learner's posts will automatically get tagged with their Group #.

  2. Choose the audience to which you want to post. If the entire Community is your desired audience, leave it on Public.

  3. After you submit the post, if the audience is a group, you'll see the name of the group just above the upper-right hand corner of the post body (See image below). To filter posts by the audience group, click on the group name.


How to change the audience for your post

  1. Click on the ellipsis (...) icon in the upper-right hand corner of the post whose audience you wish to change. Then, in the drop-down menu, click Edit.

  2. In the drop-down selector just below the lower-left hand corner of the post editor, choose the audience with whom you want to share your post. If the entire Community is your desired audience, click "Public".

  3. When you're done editing, click SUBMIT.
