Hi - Our group hosts office hours such that our workshop participants can access NCI faculty prior to the workshops. These are well-defined time periods when people post a lot of comments. As it is the discussion thread does not update on its own and so members have to keep hitting refresh. Also when the comment number exceeds the display number on the page, members must hit refresh, scroll all the way down, and then click next page. While an everyday hub user may not mind this our members may be less computer/hub-savvy and also face slower internet connection. Our make-shift solution has been to keep our emails open on the side but I think this platform should be able to proficiently handle the refresh and accessibility to comments. So my wishes are to have

1) settings that enable me to activate auto-refresh on a discussion thread, or have that always be enabled

2) Have new comments on top (below the introductory sticky comment), such that members can easily access what is going on right now, and post new comments on top. I realize this may not be beneficial for everybody, but having a setting that enables managers to activate this will be very helpful.

Thanks!

Tulika

    Or even displaying the 25 most recent comments, or having a flexible display size, such that adjusting display number is not on the user.

    Thanks,
