Getting to know Discussions

Introducing Discussions

The Discussions facility allows modelers to have conversations about elements, posting discussions and replying to existing posts. The Discussions for all elements in the model are conveniently listed in the Discussions Review window, allowing a modeler to see all the elements with posts.

The Element Discussion facility can be used to discuss requirements, in Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.

Usage of Discussions

Discussions allow modelers to have conversations about elements without 'polluting' the element's notes with questions or modeling level comments such as 'Properties need to be added before the first release'. This feature brings the collaborative modeling platform alive, where modelers can add informal discussions about elements, emulating the discussions held in a physical workshop.

Options for Discussions

The Discussion Review window has a number of options to tailor the Discussions that are listed, including defining the timeframe to allow older and perhaps less relevant Discussions to be hidden.

The Discussion Review window can be configured to show only posts within a given timerframe.
