How to set up your community.

  1. Take a look though the Settings, and customize your community. The Branding and Hosting sections are a good place to start.
  2. Write a first post to so members have something to do when they join. We recommend two posts:
    • Welcome post: Introduce your community, and explain what it’s about. We recommend pinning this post.
    • “Introduce Yourself” thread: Give everybody a place to post as they join. Try asking for a “Brag, Ask, and Give” - something you’re proud of, something you need help with, and something you can help others with.
  • Invite or add members. All you need is their email address.

Basics of Booklet

Here is what you need to know:

  • Every community has its own domain, like Free communities always end in, but paid communities can use custom domains.
  • Booklet is structured around Posts, which have Replies. It’s built for long-form communication, like email or a blog, instead of short-form like chat.
  • See a directory of all Members in a community by clicking the Members tab.
  • Communities can be private and invite-only, or public and open to anybody to join. There are many settings you can adjust, including custom colors and logos - all in the Settings page.
  • Booklet is asynchronous by default - meaning that posts and replies don’t trigger an immediate notification. Instead, Booklet sends a Newsletter with all the latest posts, replies, and members. You can adjust the frequency of these newsletters, or subscribe to new Post notifications in the Settings.
  • Members have permissions. By default, you are an Admin of your community. Admins have full control over the community, including inviting new members, changing settings, and deleting posts. You can also make other members Admins, but they don’t have these permissions by default.
  • Every Member has a Profile, which includes a biography, photo, name, and email. As an Admin, you can edit other Members’ profiles, but they can always edit their own.
