    Does anyone have advice for keeping track of discussion threads? I see that I can follow a thread, yet I cannot figure out where to go to view it again.
    Any advice about how to effectively use the mobile app would be appreciated as well.

    Thank you for your time and hope you stay safe!

    Hello Sarah! How are you? I hope you're doing great.

    I don't often use the mobile app, but I downloaded it so I could try to help you.

    When you're in the main page of the app, the "Discussions" page, indeed it's hard to keep track of a recent thread if a lot of people reply to other threads in a short period. I think the best option so you can filter what you want to see (and thus have easier access to follow the thread) is doing the following:

    1. At the main page, click on the list button (four horizontal lines) at the top right corner of the screen;
    2. There, inside of the "Communities" submenu, click on the central you want to focus on: student, discussion or any other. Mine only shows the student central because I'm only part of this one;
    3. Click on "Discussions", so you can see the recent threads there!

    I'm also attaching a document so you can see it in a visual way as well. I hope this helps, otherwise feel free to message, reply or e-mail me anytime you want!

    Best regards,

    @Sarah Marc, you can also, on a web browser, use the star button at the top of each thread to "follow" it.  This will tell the system to send you a real-time email notification  ​anytime someone responds to that particular discussion thread so you can login and check out what's new.  Also, anytime you reply to a discussion or post a new discussion (through the app or browser) you will automatically follow that thread and receive these real-time notifications.  ​Otherwise, Bruno's suggestions about the app are correct.
