New Features on Exchanges!

Dear Members,

You may have noticed some changes that happened to your Exchange after last weekeend. We rolled out a few new features and added back the ability for you all to add signatures to your posts.

Here are some of the new things to check out:

Finding Expert Content — On the front page of an Exchange you will now see "Includes Expert Content" if an expert has responded in a thread. So, if you're just looking for expert feedback you can find it more easily.

Signatures — If you visit your Exchange Profile page you will now see a place to add your signature. You can add a different signature to each Exchange you join, so that it's a more personalized experience. However, at this time members cannot add signatures on WebMD's moderated expert Exchanges. We're working on a solution for that, so please bear with us.

TRIGGER — Moderators can now add a TRIGGER notation to a post. So, if you come across a post that you think needs a TRIGGER, send the link to our mods at and someone will take a look and add TRIGGER if necessary.

Guest Experts and Sponsored Guests — Very soon we hope to be adding guest experts to some of our moderated Exchanges. These will be experts who are available for a limited time to answer questions about specific aspects of a topic. For instance, there might be a diabetes diet expert visiting the Diabetes Exchange. You may also notice "Sponsored" guests. These are experts that may be nominated by one of our site sponsors, and they will answer in much the same way as a guest expert, but it will be clear that their content is from a sponsor.

We hope that you like these new additions, and we welcome your comments and suggestions as well. Our product and engineering teams are already hard at work on even more changes and additions that have been suggested by our members, and we hope to have those ready soon.

Please feel free to write to us at and let us know what you think.

Yours in Health,
The WebMD Community Staff
