Be a greeter: Welcome members when they make their first post

Group of people saying hi

We rolled out a new Notification Setting that allows you to receive an email notification or an onsite notification when a member makes their first post.

This feature is optional. You can turn on the setting (and off) in Your Settings.

Here's how to be a greeter

  1. Go to My Profile.
  2. Click Settings below your profile picture.
  3. Scroll to Notifications and Preferences.
  4. Select First Posts by Members.
  5. Choose how you want to be notified when someone makes their first post on Mayo Clinic Connect.
  6. Click Update.

Great! Now you will get a notification when members post for the first time in the support group(s) you follow.

Recognize first post notifications onsite by this symbol.

Welcome first time posters. Ask them a question. Make them feel like they've come to the right place to support, answers, and connection.
