To Mark All Posts on a Board as Read

 

This option allows you to see if there are any new posts, in the boards you are interested in, each time you visit the community.

 

For example: If one of the boards you read the most is the Aruba Instant board and you can mark it as read.  When you come back to the community later you’ll be able to see at a glance if there were any new posts made and which topics are new or contain new content.

 

Navigate to the board that you want all posts to appear as read.  Select “Board Options” and “Mark all as Read”.

By looking on the community overview page, you’ll be able to see if there are any new posts on the board by checking the new post column.  You can also navigate to the board and all new topics or topics that contain new content will be in bold, while everything else will appear as if it’s been read.

User Tip

There is also an option within topics to mark the topic as new.  This is helpful if you mark a page as read or opened a topic to read but didn’t get a chance to read it.  You can mark it as new and it will then appear in bold so that when you return to the community you’ll know you haven’t read the topic yet.

 

 

To Mark a Topic as New

 

Navigate to the topic that you want to appear as unread or new.  Select “Topic Options” and “Mark Topic as New”.
