MC User Connect – 3 of 3 – User Forum


Maintenance Connection users from all over the world are signing up to take part in the largest collaborative effort in Maintenance Connection’s History.  The User Forum is the place to give and receive help, discuss new ideas, and connect with other users in your locale or industry.   Topics in the User Forum are organized into categories to make it easier to locate items of interest.

The categories are organized into four main areas:  Main Forum, Support Forum, Local User Groups, and Industry User Groups.   The Main Forum is a good place to say hello, discuss current topics (like the release of MC v6.0), or suggest enhancements to MC User Connect or Maintenance Connection.  The Support Forum is the best place to engage the depth of knowledge and experience of other Maintenance Connection users for help with problems, tips on how to use MC, or to take a stab at helping another user with a question they might have.

Sometimes, it is nice to get together with other users face-to-face.  The Local User Groups section is available for currently established LUGs, as well as, those who would like to start a new Local User Group to organize and communicate with each other.  We also understand that Maintenance Connection is used in a variety of industries and that each one has different methods to meet the unique demands of business.  We created Industry User Groups so that like-minded users can unite and collaborate to discover lasting solutions to common industry needs.

When you first access the User Forum, Recent Topics are displayed by default. To search for topics by Category, click the Index Tab.

To view a particular category, select it from the Board Categories Dropdown Control. In the following example, topics from the PM, Procedures and Projections Category are displayed:

Each individual topic displays information about the number of replies and views, as well as when it started.

Clicking on a topic name opens it, allowing you to view or reply. To add a reply to a topic, you can use either the Quick Reply or Reply Buttons displayed. “Quick Reply” is the fastest method to reply; just type your response and click Submit. “Reply” provides additional formatting options for your submission.

  If someone has submitted a post that was helpful to you, please click on the Thank You button to let them and the rest of the community know you appreciate their valuable contribution.

You can browse to different areas of the User Forum using the tabs at the top.   In order to post a new question or topic, click on the New Topic tab.  Be sure to fill out the title of your topic and correctly select the Category into which your topic will be inserted.  You may also want to head on over to the Profile tab to edit or add extra information about yourself and even upload a photo or avatar.

So what are you waiting for?   Be a part of the movement!   Sign up for MC User Connect, log in, and submit your question and/or provide an answer to another MC User just like you …
