Community Update - Subscriptions, Search Results, and More

Community Subscriptions

If you want to control the frequency of the email updates you receive, you can do so in your settings. Click your avatar in the upper-right hand corner of the screen, then select My Settings.

Community Enhancements
 
We've already made several improvements to the Morningstar community in 2019. Here are just a few:
 
  1. Richer Auto-Suggest Search Results

    When searching for content on the community, suggested results now provide more detailed information, including a text snippet, number of replies the post has received, creation date, and board name.

  2. Random Default Avatars

    Previously, all new users were assigned the same default avatar upon registration. Now, different avatars are assigned at random, making the site more visually appealing. (If you want to change your community avatar, follow these instructions.)

  3. Improved Community Notifications 

    We updated our automated topic reply notification to make it easier for you to follow up when someone responds to one of your posts. The email now includes quick links to reply, give kudos, or mark a response as an accepted solution.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments about the community. I hope you all have a great week!
