The Discussion feature allows any logged-in user to create a timeboxed discussion. This means that the discussion occurs within a fixed time period.

  • A discussion is comprised of moderators and a start-end date.
  • A member can comment including an editor that allows them to style their comments.
  • Discussions overview can be placed in- or outside a group, and an overview of all discussions can be placed as a link in the menu.
