In the campus Community, conversations happen in channels. To start and join conversations, learn how to make posts and comments.

Create posts and comments
How you can post messages in the community depends on your user's permissions. For information, see "Roles and Permissions" below.
There are two ways to post messages in the community:
- Make posts and comments as yourself
- Make posts and comments on behalf of a host* you have access to
(*) A Host is an organization, service, or athletic club.
Using Campus Cloud
- Log in to Campus Cloud and click Community.
- Click the menu at the top of the sidebar.
- In the menu that appears, choose your name to post as yourself or click on "Select Host" and choose from the list of hosts you have access to.
- Add text to your post using the text box (up to 750 characters maximum).
- [Optional] Click "Add Images" to add up to four images* from your computer.
- When you're done, click on "Post".
Figure 1. The menu at the top of the sidebar allows you to switch between posting as yourself and posting as a host (you must have manage permissions for that host, i.e. service)
Your post appears in the channel, attributed either to you or to the host you have selected.
Using the Campus App
