How do Forums work?

Forums provide a place for members or participants to search for information, read and post about topics of interest, and learn from each other. Depending on how the Forum is set up, you'll find:

  • boards where you can post questions and answers.
  • idea exchanges where you can suggest ways improve products and read ideas that other Forum members have posted.
  • and more...

Guests (unregistered visitors) can browse or search the Forum for information. Members (registered users) can post messages or comments, track discussions, and get email notifications on posting activity and other Forum actions.

What is my role and responsibility in the Forum?

You are essential to the Forum, even if all you ever do is read messages or articles that someone else has posted. Forums offer all kinds of contributions: posting questions and sharing answers, leaving comments on blog articles or ideas, voting for ideas you like, or just searching for answers to your questions.

We encourage you to visit often and participate. Ask your toughest questions. Chances are someone has a solution or can point you in the right direction. If you find a solution that works, let others know and pass on your own tips and insights. You might just have the answer someone else needs.

Remember to thank Forum members who have helped you. Show your appreciation by giving kudos to helpful posts, accepting a solution that answers your question, or posting thank-you replies.

We want the Forum to be appropriate, friendly, informative, and fun for everyone.

Be sure to read the Rules and Guidelines so that you know what to expect and what is expected of you when you're here.
