Successful Networks have a central place for members to communicate openly and coordinate meetings and events. This can be anything from a Facebook group, your Network’s website, to a LinkedIn group or an email list. Once you’ve updated this, you’ll send all potential members to that platform and manage communication there.
Below is an explanation of the options for where you run your community and steps on how to update this setting. Please note that you will no longer be able to collect member information using the Lean In website. You can download a list of all your Network members as of July 9th, for full instructions on how to access this list, please read this article.
If you want to run your community on a different platform, select the platform (or other) and add the link to your platform. You can learn more about the platform options here.
If you want to continue to run your community over email, you need to select the “Other” option. From there, you can send potential members to sign up for your mailing list. If you don’t currently have a mailing list set up, you can create a simple form using tools like Google Forms, to collect potential members’ information.
How to update this setting:
You can update this setting from your Network’s dashboard by selecting “Where do you run?”
There are 3 options: Facebook, Website, and other.
