Are you ready to become a conversation starter?


If you have searched for an answer, topic, or query and have not found what you’re looking for, then your next step might be to post a discussion. There are many ways to post a message to the discussion areas on the LIVEcommunity. Let’s go through them together. 

 

Posting a Discussion from the Homepage

You can start a conversation from the main LIVEcommunity page by clicking the "Start a conversation" button.

 

Please be sure to select a discussion area that matches what you would like to post this new discussion to, as there are many discussion areas in the LIVEcommunity.

Starting a Discussion in a Board 

 

Another way is to start a conversation is to go directly to the board where you want to post. You can do this under Collaboration > Discussion. You will see there is everything from General Topics to more than a dozen technologies and tools.

 

  • Once inside the area you need, Click the Start a conversation button at the top of the page.
  • In the Subject field, enter your message title. Tip: Make your subject clear and concise, as it is the only part of the message that shows up on the message-listing page.
  • In the Body field, type your message. Be sure to include all necessary details, especially, for technical topics.
  • Format and spell check your message, as needed. You even have an area to drag and drop any files that may help others answer your questions.
  • Click Post to post your topic or Cancel to abandon the new message.

 

Note: By default, the "Email me when someone replies" option is selected. If you do not want to be notified about any responses, you have to uncheck this option in the upper part of the window.

 

How to Reply to a Discussion

 

While inside of a post, simply click the Reply button to respond to a particular post. You are now part of the conversation—kudos!
