Forums let you have discussions with other members of your workspace. Members can post messages in a forum which are then sent via email to other members. Those who receive the email can either reply to it or respond online in the forum. Forums are a fantastic way to get conversations and debates going in your workspace and allow members to discuss their work.
To create a forum:
- Under the Actions Menu, click Create a new item.
- Choose to add a Forum.
- Add a Name and Description.
- Decide on your Permissions.
- Do you want to send out a notification to your users that the forum is open? Perhaps suggest what it is to be used for.
- Click Save.
A workspace may have more than one forum in order to group related discussions together.
