Forums : Require a radio button selection of Mobile or Web

Community Forums
On our radar

Forum posts in most development environment forums are notoriously sparse of needed information.  For example, there was a post yesterday with a Title of "Click on table records" and with text of...

"Hi, 

How to capture an event when user click on a records on table records widgets?

I need to capture the selected records values and pass it to the another page.

Does anyone has idea how to do this?"


No mention of Web or Mobile.  Further information, several posts later, revealed that he was using a Popup.  So... overall... a terrible post.

The only clue to a platform was "table records" which is something that only exists in Web.

If you added a mandatory radio button with choices for Moble and Web, at least that would give readers of the message some kind of idea which area is being used.

Further, I could then search on Mobile answers or Web answers.  Frequently I search for an answer in the forum for a mobile problem only to get a bucket of web based answers which cannot apply.

I know this won't help past posts, but going forward, specifics in a forum post would help a great deal.

Thanks,

David

Hi,

probably a checkbox would be better. There are cases that questions concern both types of applications.

Merged this idea with 'Mandatory option while asking question Web/Mobile' (created on 29 Aug 2018 08:06:49 by Pankaj pant)

Hi Team,

I have seen so many questions in the forum which doesn't specify which platform they are categorized.

what I feel is we should have a mandatory option while putting a question like a platform Web/Mobile.

why am I saying this because every time the person who is giving the reply to that question have to ask which platform?

On our radar


Hi Pankaj,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we think this is a good idea. 

This isn’t currently on our roadmap but we’ll keep an eye here if this idea continues to grow and get comments from all of you.  

Cheers

Ana
