    What style do you use to view Discussions and Comments:  Flat or Threaded?

    Toby Erkson

      If you go to your General Preferences tab (I think this will work if you're logged in:  http://community.tableau.com/user-preferences!input.jspa ) you can view forum Discussions in Flat or Threaded style and the same goes for Comments that are found in Ideas and in documents like in the TabWiki:

      Who uses what and why?

       

      I originally used the Flat view for both but I'm trying the Threaded view for now.

      Flat:

       

      Threaded:

       

      The Flat view is nice as it presents content in chronological order.  The Threaded view appears to be good for following conversation replies -- assuming people Reply against the appropriate post -- and I am seeing it's value for moderating threads e.g. if branching a topic that it won't disturb other replies.

       

      TC15 (#DATA15) What were your 10 Favorite Things??? is an example where the Threaded view doesn't flow quite right when compared to the Flat view.
