Participant Created Topics
By default, only Study Admins are permitted to start Discussion Topics. If you want to provide a more participant led and interactive component to your Study, you can choose to allow participants to start their own Topics. To enable this feature, 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
