Discussions Best Practices


  • Search First! Do a quick search to see if someone has already started a similar discussion or asked the same question where you can join the conversation.
  • Do not share confidential or inappropriate information anywhere in your post.
  • Pay attention to your Inbox-- answers and comments to your discussion post will show up here.
  • Mark replies to your question as Helpful or Correct so others who have the same question can quickly see which replies are the most useful. A Helpful reply is on the right track, while a Correct reply answered your question.


Where to Publish a Discussion?

Post your discussion in the space to which the question pertains. For example, if you wanted to post a question about using this community, you should post it in the About the Forums space.
