Posting questions and answers to a forum

Using a forum to ask and answer questions is a great way to share expertise and provide answers to frequently asked questions.

  • To post a question, create a topic and choose Mark this topic as a question.
  • To answer a question, create a reply.

    When you answer a question in a forum, the person who posted the question receives a notification with your answer. That person can choose whether to accept or reject your answer. If they accept your answer, the question is marked as answered and is flagged with a tick Tick denotes an accepted answer to indicate that it is answered correctly. A question can have multiple correct answers.

    Note: If you answer your own question, the response is automatically flagged as an accepted answer.

Question topics that are still not answered are displayed on the Open Questions tab on the My Forums page. You can view resolved questions by clicking the Answered Questions tab.
