Looking for SP online forums RRS feed

  • Question

  • The forum is broken and I can't ask a question in a specific forum so I'll ask it here:

    Why is there no dedicated SP Online forum?

    I see too many answers referring to things not available in SP Online. This seems like a no brainer.

    And why when I select a forum and ask a question do I have to select a forum? And then can't post. Typical Msft bs.

    And why when I select a forum and ask a question do I have to select a forum? And then the refiner box is empty so I can't post? What a waste of my time.

  • Thank you. So I guess the follow up question is why is that forum so hard to find? Why is it not listed in the "all forums" drop down box?

  • If asking a new question and you start at top level

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home

    then you'll get the painful Forum Category and Forum list boxes which do not always seem to be complete or up-to-date. Better to navigate to the forum directly, then use Ask A Question button and question or discussion will appear in the forum you selected.

    What if he starts in TechNet instead of MSDN?   <eg>

    I was going to agree with you about that MSDN filter and then noticed where you pointed the OP.  I think the TechNet filter is much more helpful.  E.g. to get to my W10 forums I can type just 0 i

    OIC.  The filter works best backwards.  For example, look at what  3 - G matches.  Also, I did not realize that we need to know all the intervening syntax to find what we would be thinking of.  Good to know.
