Sometimes questions can be quickly answered and sometimes they can take some discussion to get to an answer - either way though, by asking a question you're really looking for a correct answer. Unlike a typical forum, when you mark a discussion as a question (outlined below), you help others quickly zero-in on those answers that are both helpful and correct.
Create a question:
- Start by creating a discussion
- Mark your discussion as a question
Mark answers as helpful
As you read through answers from your fellow community members, you as the author can mark which answers are actually helpful (up to 2 helpful answers per thread/question). The author can click on the button pictured below for whichever two answers you wish. Helpful answers receive a yellow star to highlight their significance from the entire chain of replies.
Mark answers as correct
And since you're looking for a correct answer, you as the author can mark that answer when you see it (only 1 correct answer per question). There's an added benefit to marking the correct answer because we'll automatically display that correct answer along with the original question (as shown in the screenshot above).
Note: If no answer is marked as helpful or correct, the question will appear as unanswered (regardless of how many answers were provided).
