Resource Library

This page explains how the Resource Library feature works for regular users, site managers and content managers.

This feature is not part of the default Open Social product (basic/premium/distro), but can be ordered as an optional module for Enterprise customers.

1. Social Resource Library - as regular user

The Resource library will help you as a user to find selected content picked by the community managers. Examples of content you can find here are manuals, research papers, and company news.

2. Resource Library - as Community manager
(site and content managers)

The Social Resource Library module allows Community Managers to create a library with specific content. This make content easier to find and browse. Community members can use the resource library to find hand-picked content from community managers. The resource library can be found added as a link to the menu, by default it is placed under the explore button via ‘All Resources’. 

Examples of the types of content that can be added are manuals, research papers, and company news. (for now only topics)
