Last week, the Community team blogged about some important changes that are going to happen from Monday 27th July.
With only a few days to go before the upgrade, we wanted to reach out with a reminder about what to expect. We know how important the Online Community is to you and all our members. While this upgrade marks a new beginning for the Community, the site will still continue to be a source of comfort and support for everyone affected by cancer in the same ways it always has.
Key changes and what to expect
What will the new site look like?
The new site will look and feel different, but it will work in the same way as the current Online Community. This is what the new homepage will look like:
Your groups will look like this, and you’ll still be able to post discussions and reply as normal:
We will have an updated Help section available on the new site. This will include frequently asked questions (FAQ), and step-by-step guides on how to use the Online Community. The Community team will also be available to help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why is this important?
The Community is a fantastic source of comfort and support for those affected by cancer. We know how invaluable it is for our members to be able to talk to others who understand. It’s important that our members are able to continue to give and receive support in the easiest, and simplest way possible. This upgrade aims to resolve a lot of technical glitches, as well as improve your experience of using the site.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for supporting each other. Without you, the Community wouldn’t be what it is today and this upgrade would not be possible. Thank you!
We would love to hear from you, our members, about these changes. Whether you’d like to let us know about something you like, need a bit of help using the site, or you don’t like some of the changes we’ve made, we’d love to hear from you. You can send us your feedback by emailing us directly on email@example.com or you can fill in this form here.
Only 5 days to go!
