For launch, we disabled the
similar topics feature in the topic compose window as the results weren’t so hot given the paltry content on our forum. We’ve grown and our forum content and posts are deep enough to turn it back on.
Now that it’s on—are there any ways to know how effective this feature is at deflecting a new post? I’m not sure what this metric would be, but something like
# of similar topics clicked through? I poked around site settings, reports, and Meta, but didn’t quite find what I’m looking for.
To me, this is one of the value props for Discourse that I’d like to be able to report out. “Check out how many times Discourse saved a duplicate post and/or got a member their answer without any additional typing!”
Thanks for any insight!
