Ubuntu Discourse is more than a place to drop documentation and announcements. It's a place to recruit, organize, and retain community volunteers. It's a safe space with strong moderation for discussion. It has strong organization and communication tools --including bridges to IRC and email-- that you're probably not using.
This is an orientation to some of the more advanced features that can help teams collaborate, document, and communicate more effectively: Categories vs Tags, best practices to organize topics, best practices to organize documentation, and how to make your Announcements stand out from the noise. Also an overview of how Discourse moderation works...and how to make it work better for your team.
