Creating Message Boards - User Guide

To establish message boards for your organization, follow these simple steps:

1. Accessing Message Boards: From the main menu, navigate to "Administrative Functions" -> "Member's Area Functions" and click on "Message Boards."

2. Adding a Board: Click on "Add New Message Board." On the next page, provide a name and description for the board. Each board represents a category of discussion, such as committees or interest groups.

3. Setting up Topics: After creating a board, it's helpful to initiate conversations by adding a few topics. This will encourage members to participate and engage in discussions.

Board Settings Explained:

- Board Name: This name identifies the board in the board list, making it easily recognizable.

- Description: The description offers a brief explanation of the board's purpose, helping members understand its focus and ensuring relevant discussions.

- Board Category: Optional field for grouping boards hierarchically, primarily useful for organizations with a large number of boards.

- Limiting Access: You can limit a board to specific projects, committees, or board members using the dropdown menu or by checking the "board-of-directors" checkbox.

- Require Moderator Approval: When enabled, all topics and posts must be approved by a moderator before appearing or being emailed out.

- Limit Response Emails to Topic Creator: By checking this option, only the topic creator will receive email replies, ensuring privacy and focused communication.

- Email-List Handle: This feature allows members to create and reply to topics via email. Enter an alphanumeric email-list handle, and the board will integrate with the message board system.

- Organization Nickname: Customize the organization's name displayed in email subject lines for better identification. Enter a nickname consisting of alphanumeric characters and spaces.

For more detailed information on the "Email-List" features or any other settings, refer to the corresponding help sections.
