Subscribing to Forum Topics and Individual Posts


You have two options when subscribing to Forums -

  1. Receive a notification when a new Topic or "Thread" is posted anywhere in the Forum Category
  2. Subscribe to posts within individual Topics or "Threads"


Here's how it works -


From the Forum Home or "Index" page you'll see a listing of Categories and Topics. Think of a Category as an organizational folder, and a Topic as an individual file or subject.

  • Topic - General Patient Safety Discussion




  1. Click on the Forum - General Patient Safety Discussion
  2. You'll see a list of all Forum Subjects such as - How to Create a Post
  3. At the top of the page click on Thread Actions and select Subscribe to Instant Updates

You'll now be notified of any new TOPICS posted under the General Patient Safety Discussion. For example, if a new Topic is posted titled "Patient Safety in the 21st Century", you would receive a notification of this new Topic.


Since you subscribed to Instant Updates from the Main General Patient Safety Discussion page, you'll only receive notifications when a new TOPIC is posted - not when additional posts are made within that topic. For example, if someone posts a reply to the new Topic "Patient Safety in the 21st Century" you won't be notified. That's because you subscribed to notifications of new Topics, not posts within Topics.







To subscribe to posts within an individual Topic, 

  1. Click on the Topic that interest you, such as How to Create a Post
  2. At the top of the page click on Thread Actions and select Subscribe to Instant Updates

You will now receive notifications when a new post is made to the TOPIC, How to Create a Post




How should you setup your own forum notifications?

  • Subscribe to receive new Topic notifications for your primary areas of interest
  • When you receive notification of a particular post that interests you, then subscribe to that Thread
  • Subscribe to Topics that you've created or replied to
