The loop is the central community forum to share information, stay up to date with important building information, and share great ideas with others in your community.
The loop can be used by building administration to share important notices or used by residents to arrange social events and ask common community related questions.
Important things to note about Loop Posts:
(1) Posts can be seen by everyone in the building so make sure what you write is appropriate for mass distribution!
(2) Residents do not have the ability to send an email notification when they post to the Loop, the option to send an email notification is only available to community administrators.
(3) Only registered users will receive an email notification when the 'Send email notification' setting is checked.

Posting a Community Notice
As a Community Administrator you will occasionally need to post a notice of an important or urgent nature such as the publication of meeting minutes, security alerts or maintenance updates.
The Loop’s Community Notice feature highlights these notices within The Loop and pushes an email and an iOS notification to all registered members of your Bazinga community.

- Send email notification - This is checked by default and will send an email to each registered user with the post details and a link to view any associated commentary
- Click Post to publish your Community Notice or click ‘Cancel’ to cancel your notice (all text and attachments will be lost).
