The RemNote Community is our new platform to share notes and flashcards. This help article explains the main components of the platform including, Sharing, the Discovery Page, Topics, Profiles, and Groups.

Sharing

Simply click the Share button in the top right. In the sharing menu you can add Topics which makes it easier for others to find your articles via the Community search and Discovery Page, and via filters on your Profile (more in this later in this help article).

Shared Documents

There are several actions you can take on other user's shared documents:

  • Like: This can be a useful bookmarking features as well because all your likes will get listed on your profile.

  • View Flashcards: On the right you can toggle between the Document's content and Flashcards. This is helpful to get a sense for the type and quality of the flashcards.

  • Save to your notes: Now you can practice the flashcards in the documents

  • Go to User Profile: You can also click on the user's name to navigate to their profile.

  • Share: On the top right of any Document and Profile you'll find the option to share the link with others.

  • 3-dot Menu: Here you can edit your document's topics and its public title. More on that below.

Editing Titles and Topics

You can edit your shared document from two places.

1. Document view

When viewing a document, click on the 3-dot Menu in the top right:

2. Profile View

When viewing the list of documents on your profile click the 3-dot button next title:

Editing the title of the text of the document title in your knowledge base will update the title of the shared version. Except for when you edited the shared version's title via one of the two above explained ways. Then it will retain that title you edited on the Community platform.

Discovery Page

The Discovery Page is the homepage of the Community. It lists potentially interesting and recent documents and popular Topics. Check it out and and explore how other students are organizing their documents at www.remnote.com/community.

Topics

Topics are the way how content is organized on the platform. The RemNote team organizes the topics you submit via the sharing menu hierarchically to make your content more discoverable. For example, If you click on into Physics in the Explore section on the Discovery Page you'll notice that there is a second level of Topics including Calculus, Astronomy, Mechanics, etc.

Creating a new topic

In the sharing UI you can easily create new topics. Type your topic and clicking on Create "...." (or select the option with your arrow keys and press enter).

Profiles

Profiles make it really easy to share all your Documents at once. You likely have a lot of valuable notes. Now you can share all of these with a single click.

Editing your Profile and changing your profile image

To navigate to your profile click:

  1. the Community tab in the sidebar, account capsule (or on mobile, the globe icon in the bottom navigation bar) to go to the RemNote Community.

  2. Next click the small profile icon in the top right of the navigation bar in the top right.

  3. Now that you are viewing your profile you can click on "Edit Profile".

Profile Sections

Your profile lists all your Shared document, the documents you liked and the groups you've joined.

When viewing your own profile you can also see a list of your privately shared articles (not searchable on the Community). These are listed under "Unlisted". They will only be visible for yourself. This view makes it easy to make them public and to share your valuable notes with the world.

Groups

Groups are a great way to collect documents relevant to a course, module, or class. After joining a group, you can add documents to it. We plan to add more granular admin roles for groups in the future.

How to Invite others to a Group

You can invite your friends and colleagues either by sending them the group invite link or by entering their email or username in the Invite members popup.

You can see all your groups listed at RemNote.com/Groups or by clicking the Groups icon in the Community navigation bar (left from your profile image icon):

Comments & Notifications

Group Chats and Comments

The Comments feature and the Group chat features are very similar. You can use these to collaborate on content, to give feedback, or to show your gratitude for someone's content.

Document Comments

Group Chat

Notifications

By default, you'll receive notifications if another RemNote user interacted with your profile or Content.

You can modify the settings in Settings > Notifications:
