'Unanswered' Posts link

    Question

  • Hi,

    Do we have something like the 'Unanswered Posts' link in the forum as we had in the previous forums Unanswered


    I observed we can use the filter in each individual forum. However having a common 'Unanswered Posts' for all the forums would be great.

    If there is already something like that on the new forums, kindly redirect me to the url

  • Suprotim,
    Currently, we only support the "Unanswered" filter at the Forum level. 

    If we were to add it at the Forums Category level, then one would have to filter through all of the posts cross ALL forums. I'm just curious how useful that would be? Would it not be better to view answered posts in forums in which you are knowledgable in?

  • Hi Suprotim,
    Here is a feed that returns the last 40 unanswered questions across all 3.x Forums.  Let me know if that works for you.

  • Hi Carlpro,

    Thanks for getting back.

    I find that feature useful as I am familiar with quiet a few technologies and there could be many more like me. In the MSDN forum, the unanswered section was quiet handy as I could get a list of questions that were unanswered (irrespective of the forum) and then give me chance to answer that if i knew anything about it. If i did not know the answer, just move to the next page to find a new list of unanswered questions.

    Now, If i need to do the same, I need to go through each of these subforums individually. I understand there would be some efforts involved, but at the end of the day, it is a filter across all forums.

    Can we have a vote for this please in the forum. Does this forum support a poll?

    Thanks.

    HTH,
    Suprotim Agarwal

  • I am having the same issue over at the Office Communications Server forums. I used to browse the unanswered questions for all the forums for that products to see if there was any I could answer. Now I need to drill down in each forum which is more time consuming...
