December Mission: A Gift Exchange (of sorts)



In the spirit of giving, I'd would like to propose an exchange for your December Mission.  And you get the gift.  Here's how it works:

  • Post a comment below that includes a link to three different posts in the community.
  • Explain why you like each post or why you think each one is valuable.
  • Tag one person in your post calling her/him out for the contribution to the Community.


You get 100 points for each of the three steps above.  That way, even if you can only think of one link, you'll still earn some points.



You can choose blog posts, questions, documents, discussions or polls - doesn't matter.  You just need to find them valuable in some way. Whether it's a comment that answered your question, a blog post or document you found helpful, or a poll you enjoyed taking, post a link to it and tell everyone why you think it's valuable. Don't feel compelled to write a novel, a sentence or two is fine.



Here's a little help:  Go up to the upper-right corner of the screen and perform a search to find the content you're looking for.


You might also find a thread in which you commented in your Inbox.


Once you find what you want to share, copy the URL and share it in your comment. Or use the method for tagging someone.


Tagging someone is easy, too.  Just type "@" and the name of the community member in your comment window.

A box will pop up that looks similar to this:






You'll get a list of "people," and the option to click "Show 5 more" if the person you want doesn't appear right away.  You'll also get a list of "CONTENT," and an option to "Show 5 more" if that doesn't turn up what you expected.



Don't give up if the first search doesn't work, try a few phrases for content, or mashups of a person's name. For example Bob Smith might be found by using "bsmith" because his email contains that phrase.














And since I'm in a gift-giving mood... If you do all three (3 links, explain the value and tag a person), I'll tack on an extra 200 points, for a grand total of 500 points for this month's mission.  Nobody will ever accuse me of being a "points scrooge!"


That's it!


Remember, this is your last chance to earn points for 2015 as we plan to start afresh in 2016 (which we also did this year).



And many thanks to those who took part in the November Mission: Let's Hangout!  I appreciated the email and comments from those of you who watched the "Nintex Hangout - Live with Eric Harris," whether live or after the fact.  I know Eric Harris will be doing more!


Congrats to the following people who got 200 points per hangout! I've updated your point totals.  (If I missed you, remember to send me an email with the little password you heard about in the hangout and I'll update your points):
