On a memoQ server, you can enable or disable discussions, and control which types of discussions are available, and which are not. In addition, you can turn related e-mail notifications on and off.

If you want to work with discussions, but you do not want every user to see them, do not disable discussions here. Instead, exclude user groups from discussions. This is done here in the Server Administrator, under Group management. Select the group, and click Edit. There is a setting in the Group properties window.

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage a memoQ server or a memoQ cloud subscription.

You need to be an administrator: You may manage the server only if you are member of Administrators group on the memoQ server.

How to get here

1.At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Server Administrator (cogwheel in a cloud) icon-server-administrator icon. The Server Administrator window opens, with the Connection pane.

Or: On the Project ribbon, click Server Administrator.

2.Under Category, click Discussions. The Discussions pane appears.


What can you do?

Normally, discussions are enabled, all types of discussions are available, and e-mail notifications are sent, too.

Turn off discussions altogether: Clear the Enable discussions on the server check box. This will prevent users from starting discussions of any type.

Turn off discussions that are not about a specific project, document, or term base: Clear the Enable generic discussions (memoQweb only) check box.

Turn off discussions about QTerm term bases or term base entries: Clear the Enable qTerm-related discussions check box.

Stop sending e-mails about discussions: Clear the Enable discussion-related email notifications check box.

To send e-mails: Users' accounts on the memoQ server must include the user's e-mail address, and e-mailing must be configured on the server. To add an e-mail address to a user account, use the User properties window. To set up e-mailing on the memoQ server, open the Configuration and logging pane here in the Server administrator, and click the E-mail settings tab.
