When to Reply to Everyone

If you have additional perspectives or resources to add to the discussion reply to everyone on the forum so they can see what you have to share. Click the little double arrow reply button to cue up your reply to everyone. If you are just acknowledging or thanking a post author it is best to reply just to the author and not the whole forum.

Reply to Author

When to Reply Just to the Author

If you have words of appreciation or acknowledgement (such as "thanks for sharing", "great resource") it is best to reply just to the author. You many also want to reply just to the author if what you have to share isn't as useful for our whole forum to see (for example "we do that in our town too"). Click the little down arrow to access the reply to author feature.
