In the Community, you’ll find Automox product announcements, technical resources, important security updates, and our wide Worklet repository! (You can even submit your own Worklets, but more on that in a bit.)

 

Categories

The Automox Community is broken down into multiple categories, including:

  • Announcements & Events: Important updates about products and events from the Automox Team

  • Automox: Questions and discussions related to Automox

  • Worklets & Scripts: Scripts to help you create, automate, and enforce any custom task

  • IT Discussions: General IT conversations and questions

  • Security News: Latest news and security breaches

  • Water Cooler: General discussions about anything on your mind!

There are a couple of ways to navigate to each of the categories. The simplest is to visit the main Community Page at community.automox.com where you’ll see the categories in tile form, right at the top. From there, click on any category to jump in:

Or, from the “mega menu” at the top, you could use the Community drop-down carat to scroll through categories/subcategories in one place:

And if there are any subcategories that catch your eye, you can always click on the “Subscribe” button on the right-hand side of the subcategory page to get email notifications for new topics:
 

 

Creating a New Topic

Creating a new topic has never been easier on the Automox Community! Once you’re logged in, simply click on “Create Topic” in the top right corner:

Doing this will pull up a text box:

You’ll need to come up with a title for your post and decide what “kind” of post it is: is it a question that requires an answer from the community, an idea for the product, or simply something to start a discussion? You’ll also choose from the various categories where you’d like your post to appear. You can add basic formatting including links, text formatting, lists, etc. You can include any relevant tags at the bottom of your post.

 

Replying to a Topic

Replying to a topic is also as easy as can be! After clicking on a topic, you’ll see a few new options. These include the ability to “Like”, “Quote”, “Subscribe” and “Share”. Hitting the “Quote” option immediately pastes the entire topic into a reply box below the original post. The reply box is always there; no need to “hit reply” anymore:

Submitting a Worklet

Once you create your Community Account, you also have the ability to submit your Worklets to be featured in our Worklet repository. You’ll submit the code just like any other new topic, you’ll just add your code and instructions for use, then our team will review your code for security and feasibility! To add code, you’ll click on the three dots above and choose “Code” to add formatted code to your post.

To learn more about Worklets and what you can do with them, check out this page.
