The message board is a quick way for users to interact with your team.  You can set the privacy settings for this feature in your settings area.  If you do not wish to use the message board, you can turn it off in the widgets settings area.

I can type a message on the board and click send.

Once sent, my message will display on the board with the date sent and my photo.

The message board is different from the discussion board because it is not a forum where users can reply to each message and have a conversation.  For information on the discussion board, check out our Discussion Board article.

Members can be notified via email about message board posts.  You can opt-in to receive this email in your personal notification settings.
