The main pages on Raftr can be accessed from the primary navigation, found in the footer bar on the mobile apps and in the left sidebar on the web platform.
The Home page is where each member of the community can view their personalized content feeds based on the Rafts and Channels they have joined. Use the Don't Miss It section to keep track of Events, Polls, and task deadlines happening soon.
There are also three personalized feeds on the Home Page:
- Chat 一 All of your latest messages from your Channels and Raft Chat
- Posts 一 A personalized feed of Posts from people on your Rafts
- Rafts 一 A list of all of the Rafts you're a member of, organized by recent activity
Your Campus Page is the place that sets the tone and amplifies your community culture and enhances your members' sense of belonging. This is the place where they see themselves and discover possibilities. Community Admins and Department Admins can curate and customize this page (or a number of different Department pages within the Campus page) to highlight important Events and updates, as well as community members, campus maps, one-tap resources, and dynamic, trending content. You can also have the navigation button and page title branded to the name of your institution.
The Events feed is a community-wide feed to view everything happening at your institution at once. Selecting Events will take you to view all of the public Events throughout your entire community (it also shows private Events for the Rafts and Channels you are a member of).
View your direct messages (DMs) and group messages by selecting the DMs tab. On the left, you will see your personal chat inbox. Select a conversation to open it in the main section, then type your message right into the chat bar.
On the iOS and Android apps, you can access your profile from the primary navigation on the bottom of the screen. On the web platform, you can access your profile from the top right header. Your profile is where you can view and edit your icon, bio, and personal information. It's also where you can view your personal calendar. If you have community-level administrative permissions, you can also access the Admin Portal from your profile menu.
In addition to the primary navigation, there is also the header at the top of the screen. On the left, you will find your community logo as well as the community switcher section to navigate to a different Raftr community (if you are a member of multiple Raftr communities, like Raftr for Raftr Admins). On the right side is where you can access your notifications and notification settings. On the web platform, you can also access your Profile and the Support Center.
The header is also where you can find the search bar, where you can search for all the Posts, Events, people, Rafts, groups, and messages in your community.
Your Rafts & Channels
On the web version of Raftr, you will see a list of all of your joined Rafts and Channels on the left sidebar.
When viewing a Raft or Channel, you can toggle through the different section tabs on the Raft or Channel header in the center section to find the content you are looking for, whether that's Chat, Posts, Events, etc.
Also on the web platform, users with community-level administrative permissions can access several admin tools in the bottom right of the screen, including Announcements, Scheduled Posts, and the Admin Portal.
