AUG in Atlassian Community

Jonny Adams Community Leader Apr 17, 2018

I think it would be nice to have an Atlassian User Group tie-in to the Atlassian Community. Both are excellent resources for finding answers and connecting with others with a common interest. A field for AUG could be included in your profile.

I have some thoughts on ways to include AUG in the Community.

  • Display an AUG icon near each question/discussion created by someone in your AUG
  • Pull AUG upcoming events and drop that content into the feed for users associated with that group
  • Offer an AUG member badge
  • Create an AUG challenge where the group with the most answers marked as correct by someone not in their group wins

Any thoughts on this from the Atlassian Community at large?

This is a great idea and an excellent way to tie together two complimentary user basis.

Thank you, @Stephen Sifers

@Jonny Adams great suggestions! We do already have an AUG member badge; if you're an AUG member and don't have that, let me know.

We also have the sidebar that asks for your location and then will show you upcoming events local to you -- it's on the right-hand sidebar.

And finally, we will be launching something AUG-related in the not-too-distant future that you will also enjoy. :) More information as it gets closer!

And definitely keep the ideas coming; we love them!

Thank you, @Monique van den Berg. I am a member of the DFW AUG, but I don't have the badge.

I am excited for whatever AUG-related things may come!

@Monique van den Berg lets give this man a badge! (I am the AUG Leader for the DFW TX AUG)

@Stephen Sifers Thank you again. Nothing like a little support from the home team!

@Jonny Adams and @Stephen Sifers, both of you have been given shiny new badges. Take a look!

@Monique van den Berg - I'm a part of the (very tiny) Sacramento AUG.

Love the badge! Thank you, @Monique van den Berg!

Stephen Sifers Community Leader Apr 17, 2018

@Monique van den Berg AWWW YEAH!

@Meg Holbrook No such thing as a small AUG. Its the quality, not the quantity!

@Meg Holbrook check your badges! 😊

@Monique van den Berg - I'm raising the roof right now.

As the designer dedicated to the community, I'm curious…

Display an AUG icon near each question/discussion created by someone in your AUG

Totally new to the AUG world, so could you explain to me the benefit in seeing this AUG icon? What if there are multiple AUG members who belong to multiple AUGs that create questions/discussions? Would you want to see which AUG they are a member of, or is it just that an AUG member posted the content?

Pull AUG upcoming events and drop that content into the feed for users associated with that group

Where is this feed located for you? Is that on a Product's homepage https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira/ct-p/jira or your own personalized feed on the homepage? 

Jonny Adams Community Leader Apr 17, 2018

Hi @Kevan Lin,

Thank you for requesting more detail for this.

The benefit of the AUG icon would be purely for sport. Kind of like seeing someone wearing a shirt with your College letters on it.

I would only want to see an AUG icon if the user posting had my AUG in their list. I wouldn't necessarily care to see any additional AUG icons unless I also had them as one of my AUGs.

I am a DFW AUG member so I typically go to https://aug.atlassian.com/dallas/ in order to see if anything new has been posted.
