Now that you’ve set up your first Padoq, it’s probably best that you know the settings inside and out to provide the best experience for your community. We’ve compiled a handy guide that breaks down each component – you’ll be a Padoq expert in no time.
Attaching Files To A Padoq
As well as being able to create file posts, there’s also the option to attach a document to the Padoq itself via the settings. Attaching a file makes joining a Padoq much easier – use this setting to outline important information such as: members responsibilities, event information, flight details, directions, confirmation of bookings, and so much more. Simply head to your padoq, click on the ‘About’ button on the right, then select documents to upload a file of your choice.
Requiring Member Information
To ensure your members are getting the most out of your community, you’ll need to learn a little more about them before they join with the required information feature. If you don’t get a chance to add this when creating your Padoq, you can easily bolt them on via the settings. Head over to the ‘About’ button on the top right of your padoq, then click on ‘Required Information’. From here, you can ask a question and even make it multiple choice for a more concise user response.
Editing Padoq Settings
There may come a time where you’d like to adjust some of your padoq settings to provide a better experience for your members. Head over to the ‘About’ button on the top right of your padoq and explore the settings with us.
- Padoq Information – Edit the padoq display name, description, and colour scheme.
- Padoq Privacy – Here you can adjust the privacy level of your padoq, set the minimum age, and choose whether to approve join requests.
- Required Information – Although you can’t edit any required information that you entered when setting up the padoq, there is the option to add any additional questions that you’d like new members to answer.
- Notifications – Enable/disable push notifications for your padoq.
The Member List
Want to keep track of your community? Accessing the member list allows you to review all users that have joined your padoq. Whether you’d like to see their collection of posts, chat with them in private, send them a direct payment, or remove them from the group, the member list is an important tool for running a successful padoq. With the option to quickly view who is an admin and accept or decline any join requests, you have complete control over your community.
Viewing Member Profile
When joining a padoq, users create a persona that they’d like to be identified with. This can be different to their personal profile, allowing them to be themselves in all their different padoqs. To view a member profile, head over to the padoq’s settings and access the member list. Select the user you’d like to learn more about and take a look around on their page. From here, you can assign them a role such as admin or treasurer, chat with them in private, or remove them from your padoq.
Paying Members Directly
Need to pay a member directly? The Padoq wallet allows you to make single payments without any fuss. Make your way to the member list and select the user you wish to make a payment to. You’ll then be taken to their profile where you’ll instantly see the ‘Pay’ button on the right. From here, you can see your current balance, specify the amount to be paid, add a reference, and check the balance after the transaction.
Inviting Users To Your Padoq
There may come a time where you’d like to adjust some of your padoq settings to provide a better experience for your members. Head over to the ‘About’ button on the top right of your padoq
Hopefully by now you’ll have a pretty good idea of how the Padoq settings work to start building up your community. Inviting members to your padoq is simple – head to the ‘About’ button then click ‘Invite Members’. You’ll be given a link to share, so what are you waiting for? Start announcing your latest digital community to the world.
Setting Up Categories
Categories help organise your padoq, giving members a chance to filter through posts for the content they want. This is made possible through the use of tags, which are added using the ‘#’. Each Padoq begins with a set of default tags such as Announcements and FAQ’s, however, you can add tags of your own for a more bespoke approach.
