Adding a new main topic in a 2010 Discussion

All new Discussion threads begin with a main topic. You can also create replies to a main topic or other reply topics.

  1. On the Home tab, click New and then click Topic.

  2. Enter text in the Topic field.

    Typically, this is the subject of the topic. The Topic field is the only required field.

  3. If you want, click the Category drop-down menu and select a category, or type in a category name.

    If you assign a category, you can append an icon to the category title from the Icon drop-down menu. For example, if you created a category named "Business Trips", you might append an airplane icon to mark these topics.

  4. If you want to denote this topic as "important", check Mark this item as important.

    A red exclamation point will display next to the topic in the list view.

  5. If needed, add one or more file attachments.

  6. Click Save.
