Community House Keeping

  • We can see a good number of threads being created as "questions" in this forum. But lots are not flagged as answered (red question mark). Would that mean: 1. No suggested answer has been provided for all of these? 2. Members of this group don't care flagging good answers? 3. Other?
  • I always thought it was the original poster's responsibility to mark thread as answered.

  • #2.  Though it's not so much "don't care" as "don't think about it".  You would have to send me a reminder email saying "Has your question been answered?"

  • who is supposed to say the question has been answered ??

  • The OP?

  • When a question is being posted each user answering back can post a "suggested" answer but it's the original poster that will have the permission to flag his question being answered.

    Great suggestion  ... I'll put that in our roadmap.

    You would have to send me a reminder email saying "Has your question been answered?"

    Or at least have an easy way to view unanswered questions. By topic/raised by me/longest outstanding you know the sort of thing.   

  •  on any of our new groups, when you go to the forum page, you should be able to "filter" posts

  • Ah cool; cheers Jean,  I rarely venture to the individual forums! I tend to just do everything from the front page.
