APM Community Opportunity: Help Your Online Neighbor!

By Hallett German posted Jun 12, 2017 01:21 PM


FYI: This is my first blog in some time because I am working on various knowledge document efforts. (Usually on weekends.) I hope to start posting again soon Blogs and Tech Tips.



The APM/ASM/AXA Community is very much alive with the many questions being posted, discussions held constantly, and original content/software provided often.


But, now is a good time to consider how we can do much better in developing a highly rewarding electronic neighborhood.


Our Opportunity: The Need to Interact and Help Out Each Other More.

Let's briefly review the Wikipedia definition


An online community is a virtual community whose members interact with each other primarily via the Internet. For many, online communities may feel like home, consisting of a "family of invisible friends."


And that definition shows our goal and opportunity. We all should work a little harder each day to build that welcome and relaxed atmosphere here, Where anyone new or an expert of APM, AXA or ASM can ask that important question or share their contribution whether finished or a work-in-progress.


How Do We Proceed Doing This?

Best of all, you the adminsistrator of these products can take a more active role in

- Sharing your experiences both out of the box and custom solutions with these products
- Get involved in responding to each other's questions. Mark a response to a post as correct as appropriate.

  APM Support holding off just a little bit longer before responding will provide more opportunity to do this.


I hope that many of you will get more involved in actively scanning future community posts. Then  responding and answering questions. Thank you in advance for helping yourself and others.


And the optional homework question
What else should we as individuals do to help our APM Community neighbors and Pay it Forward in helping fellow community members?


I hope that this starts a good discussion.
