I am doing a bit of research to improve Discourse onboarding for new community managers, so what for you was the hardest part of starting, running or managing your first Discourse community?
For me it was understanding the Admin settings. It seemed so much at once and I didn’t quite understand how to use it with respect to my needs to manage the community. But once I understood I was looking at an Admin dashboard and each part was a section in itself, it made it easier to know where to look.
Then I found (it had always been there but I never noticed it before), the filter box in the settings page and voila! I can just use a verb or noun from what I need to do, to filter through the settings.
Has this been the case for anyone? Or was something else hard for you when you got your first Discourse community to manage?
I’d love to learn from you
