We'd like to introduce a new feature for Business customers called Discussions. Discussions allows teams the ability to have all Space related conversations in one place. This feature was created to help you share inspiration, discuss goals and brainstorm ideas to set projects into motion.
You can start a Discussion prior to files being uploaded, or with an existing Space with files already in place.
Within a Space, please note the three areas on the top of the Space. The first area is called ‘File Library’. This is where you will find the familiar grid (or list) of files you’ve uploaded to the Space. The second tab is called ‘Discussions’, and the third tab is called 'To-Do's'.
When starting a new Discussion, first create a headline within the area "Post an Update" area. Below this headline you can then add a note, description, or @ mention another Hightail user.
If you wish to add or reference a file in your post, click the + button to do so.
Once you have started a Discussion, you will see options to EDIT, PIN and COPY LINK. Click on the PIN icon to pin the comment to the top of the Discussion list thus allowing you to bookmark important decisions, files or updates that you want to keep top of mind. COPY LINK allows you to email, text, or instant message a direct link to a thread. EDIT allows the editing of a post.
You can also @mention someone to send them the specific notation:
We hope you enjoy Discussions in your Hightail experience.
