πŸ“š [Community Handbook p. 6] Sending a Direct Message

Hey Makers :wave:


On our journey to explore the features of the Make Community, we’ve learned how to:

:person_red_hair: set up a community profile
:mag_right: look up info in the community
:speech_balloon: start a conversation
:arrow_right_hook: reply and react
:white_check_mark: mark as solved


In part 6, we’re gonna take things to a more personal level and see how to send direct messages in the community.



:one: Navigate to your inbox: click your profile in the top right corner and double-click the envelope.





:two: In the β€˜Messages’ tab of your profile, you can

  • browse your inbox, i.e. the sent/new/unread/archived messages
  • create & send messages


:three: When crafting a message, you simply

  • select the user(s) you want to ping
  • give your message a title
  • create the body

note: The editing box is the same as the one for creating a public post described in greater detail here: πŸ“š [Community Handbook p. 3] Starting a Conversation.



:four: You can also send a message to a fellow Maker when clicking their profile in the feed.



:five: Looking for a specific message in your inbox? Simply enter the keywords into the search bar at the top right corner.
