Approving a reply/topic

Hello all,

I am new to Discourse. I created a mailing list for my committee. I work for a nonprofit organization.
If they want to answer a question on a topic I posted, how do I filter that out first before it gets seen by other members? As the moderator, I would like to be able to filter out a question or a response before it gets posted publicly on our forum.

Thank you!
