Step 3: Fill out the asset profile in its entirety. The more descriptive you are, the easier it will be for users to find, understand and use your asset.

AuthorPlease use the @ symbol to ensure that this connects to your user profile in the community. If there is more than one author for this asset, add all the names as appropriate.

If you want to embed code into the profile, use the >> to find the correct Syntax highlighting option.

Support InfoAgain use the @ symbol with your name here. Also if you have a blog or something referencing this asset, you can paste the link here for SEO purposes.
CompatibilityBe specific as to what product the asset is for. Generally all assets should be tied to just "one" product. List the product as the title of the product along with the version year.  Do not put the actual release number here (e.g. Nintex Workflow 2010). If you are uploading a solution as defined here, then provide all products that apply.
Platform

List the platform that the asset applies to.  In many cases with Nintex Workflow specifically it will apply to SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2013 as examples.  Just list them out as one of the following. Do not shorten these at all as this helps with SEO, and searching of your asset within the community.

SharePoint Server 2010

SharePoint Server 2013

Office 365

Salesforce

If you do not upload an icon, it will show an default icon that looks like the below

 

Step 5: Tag the asset with the correct freehand tags, the select the appropriate platform(s), asset type, horizontal workload, and industry.
