New ISA Forum


As many of our readers know, ISA not only has a brand new website, but has a fantastic new Membership Forum as well.  This new Forum is much more robust and user friendly; we’d like to take you on a quick tour…

Once logged into the Forum, you will be able to read new topic postings, search previous posts, post topics and much more.
 
Subscribing to the Forum
To subscribe to a specific Forum (Education, Requests for Help, Appraisal Theory and Practice, Open Discussion) select the desired Forum and then select “watch this forum for new topics”.  If you would like to be updated when new posts are made to that Forum, select “watch this forum for new posts”.


Another great feature of the Forum is your ability to see which topics have been updated, since you last logged on.  These can be viewed by selecting “unread topics”; from there a list of new updates is populated.


How to Unsubscribe
If you would no longer like to receive updates on specific Forum topic and post updates, you can simply unsubscribe.  To do this, select “My profile”, then “My subscriptions”.  This is where you can unsubscribe to specific topics and posts.


Posting on Forum 
To post on the Forum, select the specific forum and then choose “new topic”. This brings you to the area where you can draft your post; you have the ability to add links, images, etc.  When you have completed your draft you can preview what it will look like, prior to posting.  Once, you are satisfied with the post, select “add message” to post the message for other Forum users to see.

 


Frequently Asked Questions
The FAQ tab, within the Forum provides solutions to common user questions, at the click of a button.


Forum Search

There are multiple ways to look for posts within the new Forum: Recent Topics, Recent Posts and Search. The Search feature allows the user to set parameters for the results, whereas, Recent Topics and Recent Posts, list recently updated topics and newly added posts.
 
We hope that this brief tour helps you become more familiar with the New ISA Forum.
