Often in a long discussion, there are some contradictory opinions. It could be hard for a newcomer in the discussion to understand what have been decided at the end. Settings a response to a topic allow clarifying what have been decided as the final response and identify that the topic reached a final conclusion.
Every project members can set a topic comment as a response. By the way this decision is not definitive and another comment can also be chosen as a response. In that case the last response won't be displayed as a response any more. It will be replaced by the new response
An email is sent to all topic participants, project members that participated in the discussion, either as topic creator, commenters.
The list of topics is updated with a green check for topic that have a response. And in the topic page this green check icon when clicked allows to directly reach the response.
