All the discussion topics that you have started will be listed under this section.

If you are having a discussion in the comments section of a forum and you wish to reference your replies, you’ll be able to see those replies automatically listed.

If you are having a discussion on a forum, you might want to save the forum to reference later. This part of Forums allows you to save every research topic or forum that you want to revisit.

ISSSP forums also offer you the ability to subscribe to a certain forum or topic, so whenever there is an update, you get notified. Under the Subscribed Topics and Subscribed Forums tabs, you can easily access your subscribed topics and forums so you don’t have to search individually for each topic.
