We wanted the SavingsChallenge community to be able to connect more easily so we've added some new features to do just that. You can now follow a fellow saver by clicking on their avatar which will take you to their profile page, from there you can click the +Follow button. You can find savers to follow under the "Challenge Activity" in the center rail of the SavingsChallenge main page (remember, you must be signed in).
In this center rail, you can also say something to the community. Post a question, share a savings tip or give an update on how you're doing with your challenge. On the flip side, you can comment on other savers' posts. We encourage you to answer their questions and provide encouragement. Afterall, SavingsChallenge is about helping each other out. You can also leave a comment for a particular saver on their profile page.
You can also track the activity of the savers you follow. On the challenge main page, click "My Network" and you'll see their activity. You can also go to "My Profile" in the top navigation and select the "My Network" tab and you'll see their activity there as well.
We encourage you to expand your profile page which now includes an "About Me" and "My Links" section so other users can get to know you better. You can do this by going to "Settings" in the top navigation.
Last but not least you can follow me, Kate
, your SavingsChallenge guide. I'll be sharing savings tips and tricks on the Guide Blog,
as well as, sharing SavingsChallenge success stories. If you've completed your challenge, be sure to let me know. I would love to feature you! Use the "Talk to Kate" button on the left panel. This is also a great way to reach out with any questions you have around SavingsChallenge.
Hope you enjoy the new features!
