Approving messages in conferences
A conference lets a number of users exchange information online. You can send a message to a conference just as you would send a message to another user. You can also open a conference and read the messages posted there by others. A conference icon is flagged when the conference contains unread mail.What you can do in a conference
Conferences can be created by your administrator or by yourself or other users. On your Desktop, you will only see those conferences which you have created or moved there, or to which you have been subscribed. You can also see any subconferences within a conference to which you have been subscribed. If there is another conference that you want to see on your Desktop, ask the conference owner to subscribe you to it.
The conference owner determines what you can do in a conference.Approving messages in conferences
For example, you may only be able to read messages in a conference that covers personnel policies, but be able to send messages to a conference that deals with a project that you are working on. In this case, the personnel conference serves as a way to broadcast information. The project conference lets everyone involved in the project discuss it.
A conference may be moderated. This means that either all messages sent to the conference, or messages with attachments, cannot be read until a moderator opens and approves them. Unapproved messages appear in italics in the list of conference items.
Only someone given permission to act as moderator for a conference can approve messages.
To approve a selected message, click Approve. To make this message unapproved again, click the same button.
