Browsing Community Topics


You can see an overview of Community items in the filter pane.


The Pending section shows Community Topics and comments that need gent approval before becoming visible on the web portal.

Your Admins can set which Community content needs approval, based on the type of content as well as the Usergroup of the person submitting it.

The Status section shows all Community items which don’t need approval, filtered by status. Use the Channel or Labels tabs to filter by channel or labels instead.

Approving pending Community Topics and comments

Use the Community Topics to review filter to approve pending Community Topics.


To approve new Community Topics individually:
