Thanks for giving us valuable information.
The article above has great information from the Help Center.
that brings up a good point
in the old commmunity - you could ask a question as well as SHARE information on the same group
I dont particularly like the fact that this Q/A section seems to bias itself to only asking questyion and getting answers - when pro-actively sharing good info (answers to oft asked questions) - is just as valuable
I realize there are other GROUP areas (outisde of Q/A) - where sharing info lends itself much better
but even in the Q/A sections - I really wish it was more condusive to proactively sharing good information.
Yes - I posted it as a question - because in that entire section of community - that is the only choice I had . . . I wish it wasnt.
