Your Stuff/Discussions

Description is "Below is a list of discussions you have started or have participated in."

 

However, for me it only shows the list of discussions I have started - not ones I've responded to. Not sure whether the behavious is wrong, or the description is wrong.

    Looks very much like an unintended feature, aka a bug, to me. It may already have been picked up, there has been some quite intensive UAT going on. I'll let April (who's dealing with these reports) know we may have another for the list.

    April, this is still an unresolved issue. I just checked in my own profile under Your Stuff/Discussions and all I see are threads that I've started. Perhaps the text at the head of the list needs to be amended.

    Looks like this is a UI bug. It only shows the threads you've started. The system should not state "or that you have participated in". Sorry for the confusion. There's not much I can do about it but I can let our vendor know.

    No problem. The OP and I would probably accept that it's OK as it is, but the description needs to be changed.

    Interestingly, if you click the Your Stuff tab while viewing your profile, it defaults to the Overview category, which does appear to show all your replies.

    Re: Your Stuff/Discussions

    So it does. Yes, I think this makes sense now. Overview is for everything, replies to others' threads included,  but the Your Stuff clickable icon in the links bar is just for your own - well, anything. Including *your own discussions*, those which you've started.

     

    End of confusion. All wrapped up neatly.

    Re: Your Stuff/Discussions

    Just an update. This is definitely a bug and we are troubleshooting to fix. For now the workaround is to use the "Overview" selection. When you click "Your Stuff, Discussions", you should indeed see threads you've replied to but did not create.

    Re: Your Stuff/Discussions

    This issue has been inadvertently fixed. By that I mean changing a system setting for something else subsequently fixed it. The bug itself was not fixed unfortunately. Regardless, you should now be able to click Your Stuff>Discussions and see ALL discussions you've participated in, not just the threads you've started.
