Community Version
By default, all new Get Satisfaction communities created after November, 2013 are on the new community version. Moving your community to this new version is very easy and can be done from this section.

  • “New User Interface” enables the new version of the Get Satisfaction platform. This interface has responsive design, is mobile and tablet friendly, easy to update, and is the platform that will receive new feature updates and bug fixes. This version is the default version for all new Get Satisfaction communities.
  • “Legacy User Interface” enables the previous version of the Get Satisfaction platform. This interface is not responsive, requires custom code to update, and will not see any new features implemented for the remainder of the lifecycle.
It may take up to 5 minutes for the platform to update based on your selection.
