  • Asking a question
    If you would like other members of the community to vote on the best answer to your question, choose the question tag when creating the topic.
    This is optional, you can ask a question without the question tag to be a more open ended question that doesn’t necessarily have a correct answer.

  • Accepting an answer
    If you think that someone has answered your question, you can mark their answer as the solution by clicking the accept solution checkbox image underneath their post.
    This helps other users quickly find the answer if they have the same question in the future
