Now that we’ve rolled out the new Freecycle user interface, we’re starting a new occasional column in Newswire to bring you tips and tricks for getting the most out of Freecycle. Today the topic is My Messages. This new Freecycle feature lets you handle most of your communications online.
Tip #1: When you reply to a post, choose Reply Online to keep your email private.
Tip #2: Whenever you make a post or reply to a post, be sure to keep an eye out for new messages so you won’t miss anything! Simply click on the envelope icon at the upper right on any Freecycle page to get to My Messages.
My Messages is where you’ll see:
- Replies to others’ posts (online replies only)
- Replies to my posts (online replies only)
- Chats with Friends
- Contact Moderator
- Notifications (system notifications show up here)
By having more ways to communicate we can keep more stuff out of landfills and save the planet, one gift at a time!
