All of your posts, comments, points, and profile information will be migrated to the new platform on October 25. The only change you will need to make <b>after</b> the new site launches is to re-set your password. You’ll still access the Community at <a href="https://community.gainsight.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//communitygainsightcom">https://community.gainsight.com</a>. <br /><br /> On October 25, the site will be in read-only mode while we make the switch. During this time, you will <b>not</b> be able to register, post, comment/reply, or vote/like posts on the Community.<br /><br /> In general, the user experience will look very similar on the new site, with some helpful new options. On the new platform you’ll be able to:<br /><br /> <ul><li> Mark responses to your own posts as helpful, to acknowledge the best answers or solutions<br /><br /> </li><li> Create a private post for Gainsight Community Admins to view/reply <br /><br /> </li><li> Follow other Community members to view their latest activity<br /><br /> </li><li> Tag, or @mention other Community members on a post to facilitate conversation (<i>Note: this will be available in the next few months</i>)<br /><br /> </li><li> Like or Follow any post. There are no “me too” or “vote” options in the new system. The me too and voting data from our old platform appears as “likes” in the new system.<br /><br /> </li><li> Filter posts by Authors in the refine search results options<br /><br /> </li></ul> <b>After we make the switch on October 25, please visit the Community site to update your password</b>.
