Participant Created Topics
By default, participants are permitted to start Discussion Topics. Participants created topics will require approval by an Administrator before they become visible to other participants in the study.
Discussion Categories can be used to organize Study topics vs. Participant created topics. You can also control whether or not participants can add Topics within a specific Category or subcategory.
To disable participants ability to add topics entirely, go to the Study Admin menu and visit the Study Settings: Configuration page.
Please note that in Studies and communities with larger populations, this feature should be used intermittently as the number of Topics generated can become quite large. Often times, multiple Topics may be created by different people but covering the same overall content. In cases like this, it's better to have a single focused area for those conversations to improve usability and encourage participation
