The 'General Discussions' area explained
The General Discussions area is a discussion area that any user within the event can access and interact with. This means that you can have conversations with other users outside of 'secured’ conversation areas, who may not be able to interact with you otherwise within the application due to their user permissions.
Can I subscribe users to a 'General Discussion'?
Yes - subscriptions work exactly the same as they would in any other conversation area. Simply select the subscribers you wish to add when adding or managing a conversation in this area to subscribe them to your conversation
Can I only add discussions in this area?
No - you have the ability to upload documents to new or existing discussions in this area. Please bear in mind that this area is available to all event users though when adding any documents that may have sensitive information contained in them
