What are Discussions?

The Discussions extension provides community members a place to ask questions, start discussions and get to know each other. Similar to any content on the platform, a discussion can be created by a logged-in user, added to groups, and featured on landing pages or dashboards. The extension allows:

  • Discussions with assigned moderators and a start-end date.
  • Comments using an editor with styling 
  • Discussions placement in- or outside a group
  • An overview of all discussions can be placed as a link in the menu  
  • Content tagging for filtering
  • Approval of comments and anonymous comments
  • Forum view for discussion rooms
