When you log into the community and click on your profile, you may be a bit surprised, perhaps even angry at first. "it looks totally different, I can't find anything!" may be your initial thought or saying out loud. But...then you take a closer look and realize you may have been overreacting, and the profile actually is a lot cleaner and it is easier to find things. First, let me start by saying I totally understand your initial feelings that change is annoying and inconvenient...if those in fact were your initial feelings. But let me walk you through the sweet new look and feel of your profile so you can at least hear the benefits, if you don't already see them. Here's what made my top 5 in terms of upgrades: 1. The layout in general is soooo much cleaner. Sure there is not as much color contrast which as first, threw me off. But seeing all the pages neatly laid out as tabs under my photo made me very happy. Some of those were hidden under drop downs before. Here on the profile overview page you've got your personal information on the left with the most important above the fold. Nothing has changed with the order by which your personal info is presented. 2. You can easily edit your profile, photo, and location with one to two clicks. See below. 3. Photos got demoted (scroll to the bottom of the profile page). The community is not meant to compete with or replace your Facebook page, so it makes sense that the photos were moved to the bottom of the page. They are still there for those people that want to get to know you a bit better, but doesn't take up half the page like before. This does not take away the importance of the avatar and profile photo, please please make sure those are complete! 4. Points & reputation got an upgrade! I love that the points are easily seen in the top right, and just by clicking on them you are taken to the reputation tab, which you also now see from teh overview page. It was fairly hidden before, so this is a great addition. 5. Content tab is easy to find, and one of the most important in my opinion. If you've ever posted something in our vast community and then tried to reference it again but could not find it...this is your money maker. Click this tab and view any of your drafts, authored content, content you've participated in, or even content you are following. I hope you enjoy this nice upgrade and if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment! Best, Liz

Dear Valued Customer, Ten years ago, we embarked on a journey to create a great company – one that is a true thought leader and innovator, with a mission to enable organizations to improve the way they market to and engage with their customers. Any way you look at it, we have been wildly successful realizing this vision, and your passion and support of Marketo have helped to make this success possible. Today, we embark on the next leg of our journey, as we come to an important milestone for Marketo. This morning we announced that Marketo has agreed to be acquired for approximately $1.79 billion in cash ($35.25 per share) by Vista Equity Partners ( marketo.com/DArelease ), a leading private equity firm focused on software and technology-enabled businesses. Vista like Marketo is a bold innovator. They have pioneered a unique new investment and operating model for high-growth SaaS companies with best-in-class software products and referenceable customers. Since Marketo has always been about growth, this lines up perfectly with our vision. So what does this mean for you, and for Marketo? Our continued independence will allow Marketo to direct all of our energy to what we have done for so long: set the agenda for product innovation and thought leadership for the entire digital marketing industry, and to make you and the rest of the Marketing Nation successful. We remain committed to delivering on our strategic product roadmap and current and future customer commitments. Our partnership with you and your success is our priority. There will be many more steps in the process of completing the transaction. The exact timing and details of the process are not yet known, but are expected to be complete in Q3 2016. The Marketo team will continue to share information as it becomes available. For more information, you can read an FAQ ( marketo.com/DAfaq ). These are exciting times and we look forward to partnering on this next chapter of growth and success! Thanks for your passion and support.

Some customers may encounter a particular login situation when connecting to the Marketing Nation Community through their Marketo instance. First, you log into your Marketo instance and then you click on the Community button and you receive this screen, which loops over and over again. We've done some testing and it seems the potential cause for this has to do with whether or not your organization uses a Single Sign-on solution (i.e. OneLogin, SecureLogin, Bitium, etc) and your Marketo Admin has enabled the Single Sign-on Settings on your Marketo instance. The workaround to avoiding this error is to bypass using your Single Sign-on solution and logging into Marketo directly by going to https://login.marketo.com/ and entering your Marketo login information. This is a temporary solution as our engineering team is currently investigating a long term solution for this situation.
Ideas Customers are encouraged to use the Ideas section on the community to share their ideas for new features or enhancements to the product. The more "Likes" an idea gets, the more likely Marketo will add it to the product roadmap. Therefore, vote for ideas you like!

With the recent launch of the Community, we have made some changes to Marketo User Groups (MUGs) and how you access them. We’ve moved the groups from LinkedIn into the Community so you can receive all information in one place. The only way to be invited to a MUG is to join the group in the Community. To ensure you don’t miss out on meetings, take the following steps today: Find and Follow a Marketo User Group near you or a Virtual User Group View our Upcoming User Group Meetings and register for one near you Adjust your email preferences in Community to fit your communication needs. To receive meeting invites in your regular email inbox, select Yes to Receive Email, and Yes to Inbox: Everything in my Inbox page, except direct social actions Fill out your profile IN FULL, including location, photo, avatar and bio. If your profile is blank you will be declined from the MUGs because the Leaders have no way of knowing who you are Connect with your fellow MUG members in Community. The LinkedIn User Groups are being deleted soon Please note, these are private groups for marketers located in that region. We look forward to seeing you in your group soon!
To stop receiving notifications to your email inbox (Gmail, Outlook, etc.), please follow these Instructions: Go to the Global Header and Click on your Avatar which is located to the left of the little pencil Then click on Preferences and you will be taken to your Preferences Page Look for Receive Email? and set it to No 3. Save your work - Please make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and SAVE your changes - Scott K. Wilder, aka Nation Builder
Now that User Group communications are all in Community, it is important you adjust your email preferences within the Community to fit your needs. When you join a user group by following that group you are subscribed to all the activity and communications that goes on within that group. Here's how: 1. Click your profile drop down in the global navigation, and select preferences: 2. Here, you can choose to receive email for different actions. To receive user group announcements (invitations) in your email inbox (not JUST your Community inbox) select: Since you have checked yes to receiving notifications, now you specify which notifications you want in your inbox. I have checked yes to content that I have created or participated in, and social actions so I am notified if someone is trying to reach out to me. I suggest you select 'all activity' so you receive these notifications in real time. Otherwise you could miss a meeting! If you want to receive notifications in your inbox of the activity of all of the people you are following, select email next to 'following' at the bottom. You can also indicate if you want to receive all activity, or just a daily, weekly digest.
