How to Find Answers To Your Questions in Our Forums
With our new "Accepted Solutions" feature you have the opportunity not only to ask questions, but also to rate the best answers—for yourself and for others. This feature will be available initially in the Caregiving, Computer Questions & Tips, and Work & Jobs forums, as well as the new AARP Help area coming soon.
How It Works
A user posts a question in the forum.
This original poster chooses one (or more, if applicable) reply that best answers their question and marks it as an “Accepted Solution” by clicking on the ellipses option button (the three dots) in the top-right corner of the post and choosing the "Accept as Solution" option.
A check mark icon then appears next to the original post and the solution.
The header and background for the solution change to a distinctive color so that users scanning the post can easily locate it.
A “Go to Solution” link is displayed in the original post to go directly to the solution.
If the original poster doesn’t designate a reply to the post as a solution after 7 days, they will be sent a reminder to check responses to see if their question has been answered.
So, have something you want to know about, or just curious how this new feature works? Give it a try! And make sure to keep checking back on the responses so you can nominate the best one.
I bookmarked a political post in error. Despite reading a hint in the help section, which said to check the bookmarked item in the box next to it, the bookmarked post remains visible. What am I missing?
