When to use Discussions
Creating Discussion Threads
Public and Private Discussions
By default, newly created discussions will include all project members with access to the module. In situations where not everyone needs to be a part of the conversation, you can narrow your audience by choosing the 'make private' option - the small padlock icon - and then adding the users who you want to include in your discussion.
Posting to a Discussion Thread
You can reply to an ongoing discussion directly from your TIMU mailbox, or post an update in an older discussion by opening the discussions module and clicking on the desired thread. No matter how you open the conversation, posting to an existing discussion is simple and straightforward- type your message in the 'Reply' field and press the Enter key or click 'Send'.
