The MapR Community Inbox is where all of the activity you’re participating in resides.  In addition to that it also shows direct social actions (shares, @mentions and messages) as well as some action notifications like when someone follows you or you get invited to a group. Selecting an item in the list will populate the content in the bottom view.  This interface is fully interactive in that you can share, reply and navigate to the content.


Go to your inbox

Your Inbox can be accessed by clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar. Or, go directly by URL:
