Channels

Learn about all of the Discord channels below.

Welcome

New members joining the community: the channels under the Welcome category are a good place to start.

intros

If you'd like to connect with folks with similar goals for note taking, the easiest way to get started is by introducing yourself in #intros. I copy our intro template below:

:earth_asia: where you're based
:briefcase:  what you do
:map: how you found out about dendron
:head_bandage: biggest challenge with note taking
:call_me: things you're interested in being messaged about
:bird: a link to your social media

root

This is the same as the landing page of Discord.

roles

Here you can assign yourself special roles in the Dendron Discord within this channel:

  • Set the ServerNotify role if you're interested in getting notified (a few times a week) about CROP requests, office hours and more (in addition to regular release announcements). You will be notified with any messages using the @ServerNotify tag.
  • Set the Dev Role if you are interested in getting notified about dev-specific Dendron announcements. You will be notified with any messages using the @Dev tag.
  • Set the PublishNotify role if you are interested in getting notified about Dendron announcements related to using Dendron's publishing features, publishing templates, and documentation. You will be notified with any messages using the @PublishNotify tag.

onboarding

This is a voice channel used for Dendron Onboarding, and should only be visible or available to join when an onboarding is scheduled with the Dendron team.

Product

All about using Dendron: the channels under the Product category are a good place to get talk about all things related to using Dendron.

feedback

What do you want to see us build next? Give us feedback on Dendron here, and don't forget to vote on a CROP Event every week.

Summary

Every two weeks, we post three issues in the #feedback (Discord invite) channel. These are a combination of issues that are:

  1. Requested by the community (with >5 upvotes),
  2. New issues that people have recently expressed interest in, or
  3. Feasible to do (or make substantial progress) within a week.

Details

We take a quick poll over the weekend (opens Wednesday and closes on Monday) and put the most popular issue in our immediate sprint backlog. However, we don't commit to any specific timeline for delivering on CROP issues, so not to create expectations, but the development team will start working on them.

If you're particularly interested in an issue being included as part of next CROP, that's good feedback too and we'll do our best to honor your requests. Don't worry if an issue doesn't make it, we have a bi-weekly rotation of issues so it's bound to come back in soon.
