You have made it so far! Let's talk about one of the critical things to do on the PTC Community: accept a reply as a solution.
When you start a topic, you will receive replies from other members. When one of the replies is a solution to your initial inquiry, you should accept it as a solution. Just in case, we will send you an automatic reminder after a few days for you to check the replies on your topic.
Why should you consider accepting a solution?
Consider that someone actually took the time to look at your post and reply. A little acknowledgement goes a long way with marking a reply an Accepted Solution if the suggestion works for your problem. Of course, post to thank or further the conversation is a plus and always appreciated!
Additionally, posts with Accepted Solutions are returned with a higher preference by search engines on the Community. You will signal a greater value for your conversation by marking a solution. This is a strong contribution to the entire Community!
In fact, you can also search for only the conversations that have an Accepted Solutions. On any search, you can access the Advanced search. The Metadata allows you to see only the conversations solved, and / or with kudos.
