A Community of Professionals
You may have noticed some changes this last week.
You now have access to the Community Tab, in which you may connect with friends and colleagues of your choice. Once connected, you'll be able to, for now, share Reviews and Collections.
To add friends in your Community Tab, simply enter either an email address or a friend's last name. If they have an Edelweiss account, they'll pop up and you can send them an invitation. Click in to Preferences and you'll be able to add a photo, if you like, or choose whether or not you receive an email when someone sends you a Friend Invitation.
Your Reviews Tab has changed as well. Now you can check out all your Friends' Reviews, or choose a particular friend to see their reviews only. You can also upload your reviews from Goodreads if you like.
The ability to share information / excitement levels with friends before you've read/reviewed a title. Soon, you'll be able to mark the titles that you are anticipating and those that you are currently reading. You will, of course, also be able to see that information for your friends.
The ability to sign up for email 'digests', which will send along email reports of new activity by your friends on a daily, weekly, etc. basis
Lots more, including Groups and Discussions
It probably goes without saying that if you're not interested in sharing reviews or lists of titles with your colleagues, you by no means need to use this feature.
An incredibly large number of Edelweiss features have come from suggestions from our brilliant users. If there's a feature you'd like to see, or one that would help you out with your daily tasks, please feel free to drop us an email with your suggestion. We obviously can't add everything, but we do love to hear from you.
