Reading a message

The Discussion tab displays all messages posted for the selected requirement. You can sort messages in ascending order by subject, author or date by clicking on the appropriate header. Clicking a second time sorts messages in descending order.

Unread messages on the Discussion tab have an indicator that is illuminated green. Once you have read the message, the indicator becomes gray.

To read a message:

  1. Double-click the requirement that contains the message you want to read, or select the requirement in the list, and click the Select button. The requirement with the unread discussion is displayed.
  2. Click the Discussion tab for the requirement with the unread message.
  3. Select the message you want to view from the list displayed.
  4. Click the plus sign (+) or minus sign (-) to the left of the subject to collapse or expand replies.

    The text of the message is displayed in the message text area at the bottom of the tab.

After reading the message, you can go back to the Unread Discussion List and select another requirement.

You can turn off this option at any time by clearing the Show unread discussions upon loading projects checkbox.
