Highlight Topics With Replies From Groups

Wouldn't it be great to know if a staff member had replied to a topic before you clicked to open it?

When you're scanning a list of topics, knowing which have had a reply by a member of the community team can help decide which to read. Currently, you need to open the topic and scan the posts to see if there's a reply from the team.

Happily, in our next release, we've made it clear which have had a reply by a member of a specific group.

You can specify which groups to show as having replied via the Groups form in the Admin CP.


The per-group setting in the Admin CP

You can select to detect the group based on the member's primary group, secondary group or both.

When viewing a list of topics, you will see a badge showing that a member of that group has replied.


This simple feature will make it easier to highlight when important replies have been made to topics, which is a great addition for forums using the new 'solved' feature.

Let me know below if you'll use this new feature and what you'd like to see in the future.
