Helpful answers make it easier for community members with the same question to find an answer.
As the author of a question, you can choose any reply as a ‘helpful answer’. Beneath a reply you’ll find ‘Mark as helpful answer’. Select this and it will highlight the reply by surrounding it in green, making it easy for the community to pick it out amongst the rest of the replies.
If you’ve answered a question and think your reply could be helpful, select ‘suggest as helpful answer’ along the bottom of the reply box when you type your reply. This will also alert the author and suggest your answer to them as a helpful one.
You can view the top voted answers by using the tabs under the original post as well as sort the list by oldest or newest replies. You can also find a list of helpful answers in the helpful answers tab too.
