Blog Post created by margarita.giraldo Employee on Aug 22, 2016

Welcome to another week in the Ciena community! Last week was another busy week here, and we'd love to hear from our members about their experiences. Speaking of community building, it was on this day in 1864, that the International Red Cross was founded.


Anyway, if you have any suggestions on things you'd like to see more (or less) of, please feel free to share with Margarita Giraldo or post in About the Ciena Community




Hello and welcome to the newest members of our community!

Meet  Firas Charrouf,Matthias Gunkel, Guy Hanson, Altaf Khetani, Marc LeClerc, Patrick Mead Glen Monette, 博 大柿, Sueng-Y. Park, Ravi Chandra Pendurty, Rodrigo Rosas Alan Tsay


We're glad you're all here and look forward to hearing from you! We'd love to learn more about you and your role and invite you to say hello.



Just a reminder that when you ask a question, and a person offers a correct reply, please make sure to mark that reply as "correct" or "helpful". As more information is shared in the community, we want to make sure the correct information is easily found. The "Mark as Helpful" or "Mark as Correct" features are, well, helpful for this.

Community Tip

This week's tip is about tagging content within the community. Tags are keywords/phrases that you and others assign to content to make it easier to find when you search or filter for it. You can add tags to all content you create as well as any place you manage to improve the ability for search to find it.


Learn more about following people in this About the Ciena Community guide: Using Tags

That’s it for this Ciena Community Happenings post this week. Have a great week and keep networking!
