Forum participation by Moderators, Community Contributors, Technical Experts and others from the community is a key element for having a forum that provides the level of value and expert information we find on a daily basis. For those of you that are not aware, Forum Moderators, Administrators and Community Contributors all volunteer their time and happily share their product knowledge to ensure the forums continue to have a positive and helpful influence on the community.
We have a few ways that we encourage that participation and show our appreciation for the time that people volunteer to help answer questions, conduct moderator activity and work to make the Dynamics forum a great resource for the community.
One of the key ways that we can show our appreciation for contributors is by taking the time to use the Vote as Helpful and Mark as Answer feature. If you post a question and someone’s response helps you discover the answer then please take a few minutes to come back and use the Vote as Helpful button. If the response contained the answer you need, please take the time to return and Mark the Response as an Answer.
Taking a few minutes of your time to consider the above and take action is a double win for the community:
It provides an easy way to say, “Thank You” to the person who took the time to share knowledge and help you with your issue
It helps other forum participants more quickly find posts that are relevant for their issue and increases their chance of finding the information they need as they can review information from posts marked as answered.
We strive to encourage participation in the forums and work to ensure that we have people engaged in responding to questions so forum visitors who post questions can obtain the information they need to solve problems. One of the best ways to partner with us in this objective is to take the time to acknowledge the post that helped you obtain the information you needed.
Thank you everyone for your continued contributions to the forum, we appreciate it! I hope you find this information helpful.
