What are discussion topics?
Discussion topics allow you and your project members to hold and record conversations about a project. Users can participate whenever they want. The discussion forum is organized by topic and by date, so users can follow a "thread" of conversation before they join in, or they can initiate a new thread of discussion.

Who can create a discussion topic?
Any user assigned to the project can create a new discussion topic.

Who can contribute to a discussion topic? Who can post messages to a topic?
Any user who is assigned to the project can post messages to a discussion topic. Once a message is added to the topic, it cannot be modified. Administrators and project managers can delete a reply in case it contains inappropriate concent.

How can I delete a discussion topic?
To delete a topic, you must click the pen icon next to the topic you wish to delete and click the "Delete" button. Discussion topics can be deleted by administrators and project managers only.
