Welcome to the Discussion
I’m Don and I run teachexcel.com. I’m usually in the background working on this site or making many of the tutorials that you see here, but it’s nice to finally meet you! 🙂
I’m writing this because I want to start a dialogue and I want to hear your ideas, your thoughts, and your opinions about this site and let you help shape its future.
TeachExcel.com helps 100,000’s of people each month and I’m proud to be a part of that. As we’ve grown there has been demand for new features and that’s where you come in.
I setup this blog so that we can have a discussion about what happens here and so I can see what you really do/don’t want on TeachExcel. My goal is to make this the most helpful Excel resource on the internet and I can’t do that without you.
The first step in this process is to address something many people have been asking for, a Forum.
There has been A LOT of demand for a forum here and I have been quietly working on it in the background for some time now. In fact, there is a simple version of it already available on the site, but it is nowhere near ready to be a Q&A forum.
First, I need to know if you would even like to have a Forum here, and then get your ideas on some features I’m thinking about.
- Ability to select an answer from post replies – this would place the answer under the original question and make it easier for future readers to find the solution.
- Tag questions so that it is easier to sort through different topics and see only that which applies to you.
- Separate comments and answers section for a question so that all potential answers are listed together and comments which clarify the question are listed separately.
These are just a few features I’m thinking of building and I’d like to hear what you think.
Let me know your thoughts, if you’d be willing to participate in the forum, and anything else related to this site.
Please put everything in the comments section below and I’ll make sure to reply!
