    if you suspend the user account, that should prevent them posting to your Help Centre.

    You can also click the little gear above post title and mark the post as Spam. It'll then give you the option to suspend the user and remove all the content by that user. If you click that it'll do exactly what it says, so if somebody has posted multiple spammy messages, you don't have to remove them one at a time.

    Ok thanks! I found hot to suspend the account, but not seeing a "gear" to mark as Spam?

    Hi Jen,

    Try clicking the arrow beside "post actions."

    Here's the article with more info: https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/217965348

    Hope that helps!

    Is it possible to suspend a user from the community but not from the help center? I haven't been able to find that answer on any post yet.

    Hi Whitney - 

    It is not. Suspending a user suspends that email completely from your Zendesk instance - posting in the Community, Knowledge Base, and submitting tickets.

    Hi Nicole! As a Community Manager myself, I'm increasingly in need of the ability to ban users from the Community, but retain their access to other parts of Zendesk (i.e. submitting a ticket) - do you have an update on whether we are able to ban users from the Community without removing access to the Help Center?

    Hi Gillian - 

    There haven't been any updates to the Communities platform this year, so this functionality is still not available. 

    However, the product teams have reopened development on it, and some updates will be forthcoming in 2019. They're currently in the process of determining which features and functions are most needed and should be prioritized for development, so I encourage you to share your detailed use-case and vote on any community-related updates you'd like to see.
