The following are upgrades that would make the forums more manageable and interactive:
- Notifications - a system that alerts users that a thread has been responded to via email alerts. These function only when subscribed to.
- Private Messages - allows users to have discussions in private.
Ability to create custom user groups - we need to assign more specific controls than we currently can. The permission policies we have are too broad. What keeps us from assigning permissions on a per user basis? If this is not possible, can more access policies be created and customized?
