When someone posts a new message in a forum on the bulletin board, you will not receive an email notification unless you turn ON forum email notifications.

When you turn ON forum email notifications you will receive an email whenever a new topic or a new reply is posted by yourself or by other team members. It is enabled on a forum-by-forum basis.

To turn it ON for a single forum, choose the forum you want to “watch” and enter it. In the top right hand corner of the forum page, you will see this link: “Email notifications for this forum are OFF”. Click on it and you will toggle it ON. At this point, you will receive an email notification anytime a message is posted in this forum only. Do this for each forum you want to watch. I recommend turning forum notification ON for all your private Cohort forums.

Note: the email notification you receive will contain the text of the posted message and a link that goes directly back to the original post. This way you can quickly return to the original post to write a reply.

Don't reply to the email notification that is sent to your inbox. That reply will not go back into the forum. You must visit the forum to post your reply.

Of course, you may choose not to use forum email notifications. If this is your preference then click on this link "View posts since last visit" when you enter the website to get a quick list of all new messages. This link is located on the far right-hand side of the screen underneath the navigation bar. Alternatively, you can scan the forums for "green" indicators that identify new messages.
