Add a Discussion Node

A discussion node creates a discussion and can also be used to create an email notification that alerts users of the new discussion and its location.

Use these steps to add and configure a discussion node.

  1. Navigate to Advanced Nodes > Discussion within the Workflow Designer dialog.
  2. Connect the discussion node to the workflow. For example, connect the discussion node to a decision node.
  3. Right-click on the discussion node and click Configure.
  4. Use the Name and Description fields to enter basic information about the node.
  5. Use the Container field to select the container where the new discussion will be created.
  6. Use the Item field to configure the discussion that will be created.
    For example, set the priority and enter the body text of the discussion.
  7. Optional: If the node should also send an email notification, enter the notification text in the Email Text field and then use the Recipients field to select the users that should receive the notification.
  8. Click Apply.
