General Questions

What does the ONECommunity offer and why should I join?

The ONECommunity is a central source for technical professionals to problem solve, share knowledge and engage with peers and OneStream. 

It is made up of technical forums, assorted resources, blogs and IdeaStream (product enhancement requests). 

Joining lets you take full advantage of the Community, enabling you to:

  • Post comments and questions 
  • Receive email when someone responds to a specific post or topic
  • Exchange private messages with other members
  • Personalize your community experience
  • Post ideas, vote on the ideas you like best, and post comments 

If you don't join, you can only browse, search for information, and read posts. You won't be able to give kudos, vote on ideas, interact with other community members, or set customization preferences.

What are Kudos?

By definition, kudos are "praise given for achievement". On the ONECommunity, that definition applies as well. When you find a post helpful or interesting, you show your appreciation by giving kudos. To give a kudo, you click the thumbs up icon below a post.

Try it out!  Please note: you must be signed in to give kudos.


What is an accepted solution?

An Accepted Solutions is a way for you to choose the reply that best answers a question that you've posted and shows your appreciation! When you accept a solution, both the question and the solution get special icons and links that take you directly from the question to the answer.

An Accepted Solutions icon also appears on boards and in search results so you can see which messages have solutions.

You can mark a solution as accepted only for questions that you've posted (you started the thread). Community moderators can also mark one of the replies to a message as an accepted solution

What are the forums?

The OneStream Forum is a place for our members to ask questions, start discussions and connect with peers and OneStream. By posting in this area you’re helping others that might have similar questions and needs. Any solution from this forum you attempt to implement should be done in a test environment and not in your production environment. You should test any item for performance to ensure it produces the correct solution. These are crowdsourced solutions and may need to account for unique nuances of individual applications. Use them at your own risk.

OneStream strives to create a helpful, friendly and collaborative Community for you to participate in. Please take note of the following points:

  • If you are posting a troubleshooting question or seeking advice, try to be as detailed as possible. Do not share any specific account details as this area is visible to all our members!
  • If your needs require sharing company specific details that shouldn’t be public, please open a support ticket in Service Now
  • If your needs are complex that requires more than 10-15 minutes of time to answer, please create a support ticket or reach out to your consultant
  • If you posted something by accident, would like something removed, or run across anything you believe shouldn’t be in the Forum, please go into the post options and mark it with “report inappropriate content” stating a reason
What is the difference between Blogs, Knowledge Base (KB) and Forums in the Community?

In order to help clarify questions as to what these three items are in the community. We have posted some basic definitions to help everyone understand the clarity between these items.

Forums: These are open communication between all parties. The solutions expressed in here might not be the absolute correct solution but there a place where customers, partners and others can engage in debate and seek for answers to help others and come to a consensus. Not everything in forums can be 100% vetted while it is monitored its for the community to decide what is right. Its essentially crowdsourcing a solution.

Knowledge Base (KB): These are facts. These are proven vetted items that are supplied by approved resources. These include the following items. Blueprint Bulletins, Office Hours Q&A, Code Samples and Technical Guides or reference materials.

Blogs: A Blog is more opinion based or more serialized content that is more free form and discussion based that tends to have more personality and not a stringent as a knowledge base item.
