Now you can further expand or scale your networks by adding sub-networks. These can be looked at as extensions from an existing network, such as for different clients or customers when using with a business environment.
Here’s an overview of the key points and how you can add sub-networks to any of your existing networks.
What is it?
When you create a sub-network, this is creating another network or extension from your main network. An example being if you had a network for your business you could create sub-networks for specific customers or partners that you’re working with.
Which plans is the feature available for?
Who from a network can do this?
Only the administrator or owner of the network has the ability to create sub-networks. That said, once a sub-network is created and others have been added to it, the administrator can change the owner of the network to someone else that may be more appropriate.
How can sub-networks be added?
You can do this from the Manage your Network area, a new section has been created for your sub-networks. Just click on this and add your network information, such as the name and the text used with your sub-domain. Once done you can add other users, create folders, add content and so on.
Who can benefit or how can it be used?
The feature works best for groups or networks with lots of extensions or what you could call third party activities, some examples:
- Freelancers: Anyone working with a range of different clients or customers can benefit from having a separate network for each. Within those networks you can create folders for different projects and add content as appropriate to the different applications.
- Small Businesses: Have sub-networks for key customers or suppliers that you work with.
- Sales: Add one for each customer, with folders for different projects you’re involved with. Store files in the documents application or schedule meetings with the events application.
- Distributors: Create for both key customers as well as the suppliers you’re supporting. Include their websites, notes, files, schedule events or other content as appropriate for them.
- Groups: For larger groups with many small groups, this can be helpful to keep content focused for each group, such as with a local community organization where sub-networks can be added for the different weekly or monthly activities available.
A great new feature for those working with others that you’re involved with, helpful for keeping focus by inviting or including only those involved and sharing content as appropriate. Take a tour to learn more or try it out for yourself with the free Basic plan.
