Hi, would it be possible to add an 'Answered' button to threads in order to set the status easier? This is available when you click 'moderate' but would be really useful to have quicker access when answering questions. On a side note, we also think the original poster should be able to set this, not just the moderators.
We released an update today that includes this enhancement. Moderators and the original poster can set the status of a Question to 'Answered' with the click of a button. You'll see a 'Mark as Answered' button at the bottom of the question page after the replies.
In addition, the moderator menu (cog icon) is now available when viewing topics in the community. Moderators can now edit, pin, remove, set status and perform other moderation actions directly without switching to the Moderate area.
