Welcome to 2018! We’re starting the new year out on a positive note by rolling out a new design and structure in the Marketing Nation Community with the goal of helping you be more successful with Marketo, more quickly. The new design and structure was reviewed and vetted by many Community members and we truly appreciated all their valuable feedback.

Starting next new week, you will see:

  1. A new home page experience – When you land on the home page, you’ll see a news feed of what’s new and exciting in the Marketing Nation Community. For those of you who have been part of Marketing Nation for several years, it will be like going back to the good ‘ol days. The Marketo banner has also been removed so you have immediate access to what you really care about, the exciting and helpful conversations happening among your fellow Community members.
  2. One place for discussions – You asked and we answered. No more decisions about where to look for answers to your questions. Product Discussions and Marketing Discussions have been merged into a single place to access the genius of your fellow marketers, simply called Discussions.
  3. A new Blog space – Read about best practices, tips and tricks, and more from peers, experts, and Marketo employees…all in one spot.
  4. An area for Release Info – Want to learn about what’s in the latest, greatest Marketo release? Look no further than our new Release Info space. 
  5. Mobile friendly – Guess what? The Marketing Nation is now mobile friendly so you can take it on the go with you. The genius of your peers is always at your fingertips.

I’m excited to roll out these changes to Marketing Nation. As always, if you have any additional ideas or feedback, please feel free to let me know.

You can expect the Marketing Nation Community to keep getting better and better throughout 2018!

'nother thing: marking posts as read in Inbox, at least from the mobile version, doesn't "stick." They come back as unread upon refresh.

Sanford Whiteman​, I noticed that as well. I'll have to raise it to Jive support.

Thanks for letting me know.

Janet Dulsky​ Hi Janet,  While checking out the new home page is there a direct link to product Docs?  I believe before one of the top nav drop downs used to link to "Docs" or at least there was a quick way to access docs.

Trinity Levenson​, we did remove the product docs link from the main nav to clean up the structure. You can access the product docs links from the Release Info​ page--see button on the right side. I am exploring putting a Helpful Links section on the home page that would include a link to product docs, so stay tuned!

Thanks for the feedback.

agreed - mobile or not, it's stuck as unread. #confusing

Janet Dulsky​, is there a way to post a poll to all of community? I think there was int he old layout, but now it limits me to areas I'm following -- such as just my User Group. Best Practice in this - ?

JD Nelson​, you should be able to create a poll in Discussions using the Actions drop down, which would make it available to the whole community. Let me know if that works. Best practices:

  1. NO selling
  2. Poll a topic that would be of interest to your peers
  3. Make it simple and quick to answer, with only 3-5 short answers from which to choose
  4. Share the learnings

Thanks.

doesn't look like it -- just 'discussion'

Another thing: new posts aren't being reflected in the Inbox. I just responded to Vic Chen but this is what I see:

Sanford Whiteman​, Jive has acknowledged that there is an Inbox bug but I don't have a timeline for the fix. Thanks.
