How do I follow a thread/posting or even the items I submitted

In the previous Community site I could "follow" a conversation. I would get emails for new posts to that item. I could also view "items I follow." Right now I don't even know how to find/list the items I originally created.

Seems I need training on the use of the new community center.

Dale,

I'll work on making it more clear. For now you should automatically get emails from posts that you make when they are updated, as well as posts that you have replied to.

You can also manually subscribe to a post by clicking the small envelop icon at the bottom of the original post:

Got it - for the email portion.
Unless I save the emails how do I log on and find the items? I would think there's some "my dashboard" view that I can add items to... or do people tag items, then filter on the tag?

Thanks for your help thus far.

If you click on community and then forums. There is a series of filters one of which is "My Posts". I'll see about adding it to the profile summarizing your posts/threads.

My bad for missing the "My Posts" tab...

Now how about "My Replies" to other's posts?
And then there's the group of threads I want to find that I did not initiate nor reply to. An example would be a post about migrating to SBM 10.1.5.1 - I have nothing to add, but will want to review this when I get ready to migrate to 10.1.5.1.

Thanks again for your help.

Also on GetSatisfaction forum, I thought (??) I could modify a reply (like this one) once I had posted it.

---------- Update 6/19
Following Zanth's reply (below) I rechecked. There is now an "Edit" button next to "Reply to". Perhaps I'm going crazy, or maybe it's just being downwind of Boulder CO, but I did not see that button before.

Paul,

You should be able to edit your own reply.

Just tested to verify.

Dale,

There is an option to "Mark as Favorite" a post in the original question. The problem is that we don't appear to be surfacing your "Favorites" in your profile etc. We are investigating to see why this isn't showing up on the profile. I'll update once we have a resolution.

Thanks,

Dan Nolan

Dale,

There is a tab on your profile now "Favorite Discussions" that lists all the discussions that you marked as Favorite. We will look to add the ability to see any that have changed since the last time you visited as well. For now though you can favorite discussions and have them appear in this list.

Thanks,

Dan
