Automatically create Discussion Capture pages (7.1.0)

Before you begin

The reason that this requires write access is that when a Discussion Capture page is created, the incoming email user is automatically added to the distribution group in AD. This way the emails will end up in ThoughtFarmer.

Add Discussion Capture to an existing group page

  1. Go to the ThoughtFarmer group page and click Edit.
  2. Ensure that the group type is "Closed" and synced with a valid Exchange distribution group in the Sync with Active Directory group field.

  3. Select the checkbox Archive discussions.
  4. Click Save.
A new page will be created directly below the group page called "Discussions". You can change the name once the page is created by going to the page and editing it.

Create a Discussion Capture page when creating a group

  1. Go to the parent page where you want to create the group and click Add.
  2. Enter a title for that group.
  3. In the page type dropdown on the right, select Group.
  4. Under Membership select Closed.
  5. Choose a valid Exchange distribution group in the Sync with Active Directory group field.
  6. Select the checkbox Archive discussions.
  7. Fill out any other required info for the new group.
  8. Click Publish.
A new group will be created as well as a new page called Discussions directly below it. You can change the name of the Discussions page by going to the page and editing it.
