Join me in celebrating the Egnyte Community’s 1st Birthday. Be sure to login to receive your Birthday badge and let us know your favorite moment, tip learned, or question answered in the community this year.
With one year in the books, it’s natural to think about how it all came to fruition. It might sound cliche, but the inspiration for the community actually came from you… our customers. At every event, you let us know you really wanted more opportunities to connect with your peers. Our founders listened and knew that a community would be a great resource for this. I’m thankful you have all embraced the community, are sharing ideas, and are connecting with your peers. Thank you for the inspiration for this resource and for making it valuable for all who visit.
We launched the Egnyte Community on Jan 31, 2017. If we had a prize for who was the most excited, I think it would go to our CEO, Vineet Jain who had pushed to get this space available for customers.
When you launch a community, you never know if you’ll have a ghost town or if you build it, they’ll actually come. So we launched, waited with bated breath, and obsessively refreshed the browser to see if people were signing in. Fortunately, many people came and asked questions, made comments, shared ideas, and helped others with answers.
It’s always exciting to see people connecting. I wish I could give a shoutout to all the great moments, but here are some memorable moments for me and I encourage you to share your favorite moments and some shoutouts to your most helpful members in this post.
