How do I send a private message to a community member?
You need to add the community member as a “friend”…once they approve your friend request…you will be
able to send them a “Direct Message” or private message…by hovering your mouse over their name link and then
click on “Message”
It’s not exactly screamingly obvious but one makes that friend request by hovering one’s mouse over the user’s name you’d like to friend then clicking the “Follow” button.
Ok so I am now following the member whom I would like to send a DM to. However, I see no options to send them a message. Not even when I hover over their name link. Is there something I am missing?
Once you clicked on follow…it sends a message to the other member…and that person…needs to “approve you” as a friend…once the approval is logged…you should see this on the hover screen
Clicking on “Message” will allow you to send a message.
Thanks a bunch. I will check back later then to see if the other user has accepted my request.
