Get involved! Post your discussions, or reply to others’ posts – the more discussion, the better!

Instructions to Post a Message

Instructions to Reply to a Message

  1. If you are replying while logged in to the DIFM website, click "Reply to Discussion" to send your message to the entire community or "Reply to Sender" to reply privately to the original sender; both links are, located in the gray column at the right. (We recommend replying to the sender for simple comments that add little value to the overall discussion; and replying to the entire community when you are sharing knowledge, experience or resources that others could benefit from.)
  2. You can also reply from your email account by replying directly from the email notification you receive without having to log in to the community website. Simply click on the "Reply to Discussion" link in the column at the right and type in your message.

Which setting do I choose??

Daily Digest

The daily digest is a single email compiling all posts over a 24-hour period from each discussion board. Daily digests allow you to reply to posts directly from your email.  Consolidated daily digests compile all DPG/MIG content, including discussion posts, library entries, announcements, and events. Unlike the daily digest, you are not able to reply to posts from your email and are not the recommended notification type for discussion boards.
