Tightknit: Private Online Archive for Community Resources

Just a thought, but not us....I could also see a use case where some communities may want to use Tightknit to have a way to archive and store all posts, events, resources, etc. but not make a public site. Essentially a long-term searchable resource for members of a community accessible online, but not to folks not part of the community.

    This is actually an idea that Scott and I have been toying with. It’s especially valuable to associations that want to provide a premium, curated, and branded experience for their members.

    Good to see that it would be something you’d be interested in too Scott. (Two Scotts in one chat… oh no–what have I done)

    Cool. Glad to hear.

    And LOL we're multiplying (S + S = 🦹 )

    The two biggest things we need to enable this well:
    • Portal with Slack login. Other SSO options down the line but not MVP.
    • Search (Keyword, Semantic, and GenAI answers). This one is critical for providing an easy way to navigate the content.

    Scott Baldwin Happy to hear that more of us see the potential value in having a non-public archive 🙂

    Zach Hawtof Portal with Slack login would be great or a way to connect a Slack login to a separate account. We're considering Memberspace at the moment.

    One issue we run into is people leaving a job and not having access to the email they signed up with + we can't change the email address for them because we're on the free plan.

    Some basic level of searching/tagging would be nice.

    Our use case would be curating/organizing/surfacing the content from our community.

    For example, pulling all the links shared in a channel and curating that so we can easily surface a list of resources from that channel.

    Scott — That’d be where Common Room would be a great integration partner for Tightknit to track members across their entire lifecycle with you and keep them on their personal email address, eliminating the need for folks to re-join with a new email everytime.

    And, yes, I’m a contractor on the Common Room team, currently.

    Possibly Joel Primack, I think Common Room already has these conversations in Activity and given the conversations would all be via Slack shouldn’t require anything further integration-wise.

    p.s. you can easily change your email address in Slack (happy to share instructions if you don’t know how)

    Only if you did it via an email + password and not an SSO, Scott.
