Posting a Message

You can join a discussion group by opening the database and reading messages from those in the group, or you can compose your own messages to add to the discussion. To post a new message to a discussion group, follow these steps:

  1. In the discussion database, click the New Main Topic tool button. The New Topic window appears (see Figure 14.3).

    Figure 14.3. Create your own messages to add to the discussion.

  2. Enter a topic in the first set of brackets. The topic is the name of your message, and it is what Notes displays in the database window.

  3. Click the down arrow next to Category to choose the category in which your message fits. The Select Keywords dialog box appears, with General selected by default (see Figure 14.4). A document may fit into one, two, three, or more categories at the same time.

    Figure 14.4. Choose the category under which you want your message listed.

  4. In the Keywords list, click on the keyword for the category to which you want to assign your message. Notes displays a check mark beside it. You can click on a selected category to deselect it and remove the check mark. When you're satisfied with your choice, click OK.
