|Using External Groups / Contributing to a Community|
When you first join a community's external group as an external contributor, you can begin participating by accepting invitations, setting up your profile, and addressing your actions.
The following tips help you fit right in and get started. Once you're set up, take a look at what else you can do here!
Your user profile provides community members with an easy way to learn about your experience, skills, and interests. Your profile shows up in search results when community members search for keywords contained in your profile. You can update your information at any time.
When you are assigned something to do, such as a task or something that's been Marked for Action for you, you'll see an alert next to Actions in the left sidebar.
You can take advantage of custom email notifications if you feel like you might miss something important when you're not signed in.
