openSAP reserves the right to close any account which we believe has been created to impersonate and misrepresent a person’s identity.
There are two types of threads that you can choose from in the discussion forum. Please select the thread type depending on what you want to achieve with your post:
Ask a question:
With the orange button, your post will be created as a “question”. Use this thread type if you want to ask a question and expect an answer. Your peer students and the experts can write answers to this question. In addition, you and others can comment on these answers. As the question creator, you (and the openSAP admins) can select one of the answers as answered by clicking the sign.
Please do this if your question is answered: It will help the experts and all your peers to quickly see there is no further action required and will help peers to find the right answer if they have a similar question, as the thread will show as “answered” in the discussion forum list.
Start a discussion
With the yellow button, your post will be created as a “discussion”. Please use this thread type if you want to openly discuss a topic with the experts and your peers.
Answers in a discussion are created by “add comment”. As discussions are open, there is no function to mark one comment as a correct answer.
In the forum list, discussions are marked with the sign.
Up and down voting of posts
You and other learners can vote posts up or down to express agreement or disagreement.
Each user can only give one vote per post but a decision can be taken back and changed at any time by choosing the opposite vote.
In discussion threads, only the original post can receive votes, you cannot vote on comments. In question threads, both questions and answers can receive votes.
If you create a new thread (discussion or question), please make use of the tagging functionality. Best practice is to add one meaningful tag to provide the context for the discussion or question. These tags will be displayed in the discussion forum list.
An orange bar before the thread indicates that it is a new one or that there´s some new activity within the thread since your last visit.
