Have you moved to a new company but you want to keep all of your profile info, activity, content, and rewards and points? Great, we can help.   Log into your new Marketo Instance and follow these steps. Email our Customer Care team at customercare@marketo.com  as soon as you get your new community account set up  so we can swap your information. They will need the email address of your old profile as well as the email address of the new profile to which you want your profile info, activity, content, and rewards and points moved.   Important: DO NOT CREATE ANY CONTENT ON YOUR NEW ACCOUNT before we've completed the information swap. Any content you create in the new profile will be lost if you decide you want to swap profiles AFTER the fact.   Please note that we can only SWAP account information from one profile to another. We cannot merge points or profile information from multiple profiles to one profile. So in these cases, we recommend you give us the email associated with the account with the information you'd like to retain and ask that we swap it with the account you'd like to use going forward.   We will notify you when the process is complete through the Customer Care case you have opened. If you have questions regarding this process, please feel free to post in About Community.

Click your Avatar in the upper right corner and then click Edit profile. 2. Click the Your Profile tab and fill in your profile information.

The icons in Jive can be really handy at helping you know what kind of content or area you are looking at - but only if you know what they mean. This is a guide, or key, to these different icons. Icon Meaning Description Status Update A great way to "work out loud" and let people know what you are up to, or to spread the word on an event, new content, etc. Blog post Blog posts are typically the content choice for making announcements, sharing an opinion, or pointing out some new materials you have added to the community. Document Documents are meant to be used for reference, i.e. a more permanent record of a policy, product information, instructions, etc. It can have supporting attachments, but the "important stuff" should be captured in the document text. Discussion Thread (not a question) Discussion threads can be marked as questions or just discussions. If you are expecting a definitive answer, you should leave it marked as a question so that you can then mark the correct answer (as well as helpful answers) and let everyone know that the discussion is "complete". Note that there is no magic ability for the system to mark the correct answer once it is provided. That is up to you as the questioner. If the question is more open-ended, for example an online brainstorming session, feel free to unmark the question checkbox. Answered discussion question thread This icon displays if a discussion post is marked as a question and the answer has also been marked as such. Unanswered discussion question thread This icon displays if a discussion post is marked as a question and no answer has yet been marked. If you are the one who asked the question and it has been answered, please mark it as answered by clicking the Correct Answer button. Please note : Questions where you expect a definitive answer should always be marked as questions . This will help you and others see: When the question is answered What the answer actually is (if you mark the correct answer once it is provided). Uploaded file A file that has been uploaded into Jive and not created directly in the community. Powerpoint File document This type of document is centered mostly around the Powerpoint attachment. Excel File document This type of document is centered mostly around the Excel attachment. Word File document This type of document is centered mostly around the Word attachment. PDF File document This type of document is centered mostly around the PDF attachment. Idea A type of content that you or others can create and vote on. If your community members vote positively, your idea gets more points; if they vote negatively, points are taken away. Event This community includes events. They can be created in selected places. You can opt to attend and event and download an entry into your personal calendar. Video A form of content that has been uploaded as a video file. Poll A lightweight way to ask a question of a large audience and gauge overall response. Like You can help improve the popularity of a blog post, discussion, document, or other type of content by rating or liking it. Popularity determines whether a piece of content is promoted in certain content widgets, for example, the Top Liked Content and Top Rated Content widgets. Space Formal, structured hierarchical community place where content can be stored and organized. Admission can be tightly controlled, not by invitation. Group Informal place, created by the community manager. Access to private or secret groups is controlled by the group administrator (the person who set the group up), but public and member's only groups can be seen by all employees. Categories Categories are words or phrases created by administrators within a particular place (a space or social group). If there are categories available in the place, it usually means that the place's administrator has given thought to how that place's content should be grouped. Tags A tag is a keyword that has been identified by the content creator as being helpful when searching for a piece of content. Bookmark Users can bookmark items they find important within or outside of the community. These are not the same as browser bookmarks. Direct Messages Members who follow each other in the community can have a private conversation (without sharing email info)

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.

Assigning tags to your content makes it easier for you and others to find later. Tags are like key search words that you and others assign to content. Tags make it easier to find content when you or others search for it later. You can assign tags to existing or new content. You can even assign tags to a status update. Assign tags to a Status Update To assign tags to a status update, type # before the keyword, for example, "Really enjoying these awesome #tutorials about how to #get started  Now others will find this update whenever they search for "tutorials" and "get started." Assign tags to other Content There are two ways you can assign tags to content: You can open or create your content and scroll to the bottom of the page to the Tags box. Type in the keywords you would use to search for this content. You can also use inline tagging by adding tags on the fly, as you're editing the body of the content. To do this, use the #, which is a hash or pound sign, and follow it with the tag. So if you're writing about your first day in the new community, you might say "Just learned how to write a post #newbie"‌ Tagging Tips Consider using any existing tags that pop-up in the suggestion box. Existing tags are often assigned to related content, so it's good practice to use them. An underscore can help with longer tags such as sales_report or employee_benefits. Note that if you are tagging content that is being moderated by an admin, your tags may not show up right away because content updates may need to be approved. You can speed up tagging by changing your user preferences. To enable on-the-fly tagging, click on your avatar in the upper right corner and then Preferences. Turn on Quick Tagging Mode and then click Save.
