DocEHRtalk Site Improvement Suggestions
Maybe this topic should be added as a separate forum so anytime someone has a suggestion, it can stimulate discussion topic by topic so others can weigh in their opinion.
1. The order of posts - the main post stays on top and then all further discussion goes in backwards order so the most recent post is just under the main question/post. I guess it might make sense to be able to read the most recent addition first (or second as the case may be), but most of the time the discussion moves forward. The first post starts a discussion that creates many replies (tons of replies as we would hope), but many times the subsequent posts are commenting on points that the last post was bringing up. My suggestion is that the posts read like a book, in order. If you want to see the last post, scroll down. If there are too many posts, have pages so you can go to the next (or last) page if you prefer to skip a lot of the discussion and get to the most recent addition.
2. Link from the email - I get an email indicating that someone posted a response to a discussion I was in or watching. That is great, the link works great. I see the post, I want to post a reply. No problem, press reply, oops, can't do that, I'm not signed in. To sign in you have to leave what you were doing, go sign in, and now - hmmm where was that post? No problem, go back to the email and start over - only problem is that if you do that you aren't signed in again. My suggestion is to have the email link trigger an automatic sign in - if it was my email and I am a registered participant, can't the system recognize me when the link brings me in? If not, at least have the log on integrate into the screen I am on so I don't lose my place.
The site is great, just minor criticism, hope you don't mind. Thank you for your consideration of my concerns noted above.
