Discussion Boards

Every group page has a discussion board to encourage relevant and useful conversations among members.  Any user can see discussion board activity, but only members of the group can choose to post or comment.  

Group discussion boards have the ability to display rich links directly within the comment thread/posting.  You can not insert or upload files, however you can include links to hosted material/content.  Any relevant multi media content included within the meta data of your link, will be displayed within the post.

 If a discussion board comment that a user is posting will result in a job opportunity, the user can select the "Job opportunity" button.  This will result in the discussion board comment being cross posted to the job board.

Group members can select the "Notify Me About Discussion Activity" checkbox, if they would like to be notified when new comments are posted to the discussion board.  Users can also go to their "Notification Settings" page, to adjust all their group level setting notifications.

If any discussion board comment or posting appears to be offensive or not suited for public consumption, users can report the post by clicking the "Report Post" icon in the top right hand corner of the posting.  Group organizers and administrators will be alerted to the reported content, and can take down the comment as apporpriate.
