    Step 1

    Begin your mission by bookmarking this page. Using the bookmarking feature in Engage will allow you to easily return to the resources you find most important.

    Getting started with Engage involves learning how to find your way around and navigate to content that might be of interest to you. Explore the drop-down menus that appear at the top of this page to browse for Content, People, and Places within the community. You will see these same menus on every page in the community.


    Now, go to the Intel Engage Home page and locate the three tabs in the middle of the page:
