Hitachi Vantara Community User Guide > Getting Started > Creating Content


First, choose a content type based on your community objectives.


Click  Pencil icon  to draft a discussion, question, document, blog post, or another type of content in the Hitachi Vantara Community. Note that you will not see the Create menu unless you are logged into the community.


You may have different content types available to create within each Space or Group based on the permissions that your community manager has enabled. For an overview of the differences between each type of content, see What's the difference between a document, a blog post, a question, and a discussion?


Private and Public Content

By default, most of the content you create is public in the Hitachi Vantara Community and searchable. The power of the Hitachi Vantara Community is that everyone in the community can benefit from shared content. However, in some cases, you may want to limit who sees content and who can collaborate on it with you. For more information about deciding who can see and collaborate on your documents, see Getting more out of documents. For more information about private discussions, see Getting more out of discussions and questions. Or, you can choose to publish your content in a private Group that limits content to approved members.


Monitoring Your Content

You'll automatically follow all content that you create, so you'll receive an update in your Inbox whenever anyone responds to your content or, if it's a document, changes it. You can also delete any comments on your content, as well as delete the content entirely.
