Posting a link

Share a useful link to a community. For example, you might post a link about paying invoices to your organisation's Finance community. 

Making knowledge more accessible and discoverable is at the heart of Fuse's philosophy. For recommendations and tips on how to make the knowledge within your content more accessible and easily discoverable, see Creating accessible content within Fuse.

In the case of externally hosted files, such as a Google Doc, Sheet or Slide, it is recommended that you embed it in a Fuse article instead. This is so that users can view the file directly in Fuse, rather than seeing a static link. For more information, see Embedding external content (e.g. Google files) in Fuse articles.

To post a link on Fuse:

  1. On the Fuse homepage, on the navigation bar, click Post

    The New content page appears.

    • The link must include the https:// prefix.

    • You can post multiple links to Fuse that have the same URL.

    • Where available, Fuse automatically pulls a title, description and thumbnail from the link, and generates one or more tags. This depends on the platform hosting the link  -  some platforms allow this data to be publicly available (in which case Fuse can retrieve it); whereas some do not (in which case Fuse is unable retrieve it). If Fuse cannot auto-populate this data, you must populate it manually

    • You can add links to Instagram and Facebook pages but a thumbnail, title and description cannot be extracted automatically.

  4. If necessary, change the information.

    • Don't notify anyone: No users are notified. 

    • Notify all community members: All users in a selected community are notified.

    • Notify specific users: Only selected users in a community are notified. 

      When posting content to an Evidence Portfolio: 

      • The Notify all community members option is not available.

      • In order for the manager to appear in the Notify specific users list, they must have a manager assigned.
