Discussion Subscription

In Discussions, subscribing to a Forum, Topic, or Thread is a way to “Tag” an area of interest in that discussion. Subscribing to a Discussion by Forum, Topic, or Thread will send different levels of notifications to the subscriber. Subscribing at the Forum level will allow the subscriber to receive a notification every time someone responds to any part of that Forum (Topic or Thread). Subscribing to a Topic the subscriber will receive a notification every time someone responds to a Thread in that Topic. Subscribing to a Thread will notify a subscriber someone has responded to that Thread.
