You've landed on the community site, and you're now here thinking, how do I access forums?

Asking a Question

In many of the spaces on the site, you're able to ask questions. These are your forums!

There are two ways to ask a question. The most consistently available is to click Actions in the upper-right corner. This menu shows the options that are available to you in that space. The first item is "Question," so simply click that and ask your question. Note that another selection is "Discussions" which are chats with fellow community members that don't require an answer.

The other method that is sometimes available is the "ask" box, such as in  Ask Nintex Workflow Cloud. If you see one, simply start typing your questions in the box.

Once you start typing, the site will scan content for similar questions. You'll be able to scan available questions, or ask your own if you can't see it!

Browsing through Forums

Each space has a Recent Content area on the main page, this is where you'll see the most recent discussions on that space. Look out for it to see new, and newly responded to posts.

If you want to browse through all the discussions, and questions on a space you'll need to go to the Content tab of the area of interest. Here you'll be able to browse through any discussions, documents or blog posts.

You can also filter by latest activity, or by a specific tag, even use the Categories on the left-hand side to find information in that category. Break it down further by selecting either blog posts, documents or discussions!

Why eveything is so complicated? Old forum worked like Swiss watch...

I could not agree with Yevgeny more!

IMO, the new format is less than useless.

I really just want to go along to the relevant forums, post my query and skim through other peoples queries just in case anything interests me.

I regret to say I find this present format unusable. I look forward to it maturing because the community is of immense benefit.

Hey all, thanks for your feedback. Yes, there is a bit of a learning curve to the new site, and it works a lot like the rest of the net instead of sitting on old forum technology. Getting used to a new site can be confusing, and we're hoping the information above will reduce some of that!

Thanks Boris J for your comment, I've added some extra info on how you can post and browse through the discussions.
