See who marked post as solved?


(Codecademy ) #1

Is there a way to see who exactly marked the post as “solved”?

Thanks!


How do I see who is marking solved and on what?

Whoever’s post is marked as a solution gets a notification with this info on it - as an admin you could just check their notifications.

I don’t think there’s a public, in-thread display of this info though, which could be an area for improvement. At least if the expectation is that someone other than the topic creator is regularly marking posts as solved.

I would love to (as an admin) be able to see who marked it as solved without having to dig for notifications.

As an admin I could see the uses for this, but do you really want your end users to know which posts are marked as solved by the user and which by your moderators/admins? Sometimes too much information can be a bad thing.

No, that’s not what I am suggesting. I am suggesting that the admin is the only one who can see who marked as resolved.

Isn’t it only the topic’s OP that can mark a post as the Solved post?

And staff (IIRC)

It’s a weird thing to be secretive about though. Marking a post as solved is closely related to Liking a post, and the latter is always public. Similarly, on StackExchange you know that the post marked as the solution was marked as such by the Original Poster, so we’re used to this info being transparent.

That’s true! Great point. I was only thinking as an admin :wink: So I don’t care either way, but I would love in the very least, at least admins (high trust levels) and OP’s to be able to!

I definitely don’t mind such a feature either. Probably isn’t terribly difficult either. As I’m sure the solved plugin knows who marked one of the posts as solved.

I think it must how else could the Helpdesk Badge be granted?
https://meta.discourse.org/badges/125/helpdesk

eg. it tests for the OP
var isOp = User.currentProp("id") === this.get('post.topic.user_id');
