How to send a direct message in forum

this is @carpediem …I am not especially ‘tech savvy’ and I am wondering how i have a conversation with other members that are not shown in the public domain of the forum? Thanks for any advice.


Hi @carpediem. Top right-hand corner if you click on your picture or icon, you will see 4 icons. Click on the envelope icon twice and you can then send a DM - direct message, to another Forum member. Create a ‘new’ message.

I find it interesting that there are usually many ways to do the same thing with tech. I take the route of just clicking on your name on the message here and the message option shows on the right. A short cut, I think, if you’re viewing the person’s post. @carpediem


How does one send a direct message?

@Lauraa click on the name of the person you want to send a message and this will pop up:

Then click on „message“ :wink:
