Upvoting in Teamwork Lab

Kishan Sharma Community Leader Jul 30, 2021

Dear Group members,

Don't we have upvoting feature in Teamwork Lab group? eg: If I like an answer to a question and want to upvote it, i am unable to do so in this group. Is this just only me or everyone else ? 


I cannot see a feature like this neither @Kishan Sharma :(

I am editing my response @Kishan Sharma .

I think the upvoting feature is available for responses if the original post is  question and responses posted to it.

The current one is a discussion and not a question so it's not there.

I presume you can check with other posts in this Teamwork Lab group and  confirm the same.

Thank you @Suvradip Paul for taking a look. This was one of my question, earlier I couldn't see the Votes button, but i can see it now ;) do you believe in magic ?

Glad to hear @Kishan Sharma it's working now. I checked while I posted my last response and it was fine so it might have been already sorted.



In your question in teamwork lab group, I can upvote

most other threads are discussions, the you cannot upvote answers

Kishan Sharma Community Leader Jul 30, 2021

Thank you @Alexander Pappert I just replied Suvradip about it, I raised this here because I couldn't see votes button on my question earlier, but now i can see it, seems like someone has a magic wand :-)

Haven't looked into the specifics of your linked thread, but just wanted to throw in some background and a case we see from time to time.

  1. Questions have upvotes, discussions are threaded. This has been mentioned, but it's also worth calling out that you can't like answers (only upvote). Comments on questions can be liked. Everything in discussions can be liked. The most upvoted answers on questions will float up, whereas discussion threads don't move up/down.

    Occasionally someone will ask a question using the discussion post type; in this case, Community Leaders or Atlassian Team members might move the post over to be a question instead so that an answer can be accepted.

  2. Very, very rarely, we'll be deploying changes to the Community site when a question is loaded. During the short period where the deploy is happening, you might get some javascript that's out of sync with the backend of the site. Doing a hard refresh (or deleting your browser's cache) will generally solve this.

Thank you @Daniel Eads for the background. Seems like for me it was a cache issue for one of my question that i asked.

Alex Koxaras Community Leader Aug 05, 2021

Same thing here, but I think it's because they are discussions, and not questions.

It doesn't appear to me either, I'm in the same situation

Kishan Sharma Community Leader Aug 22, 2021

As commented by Daniel earlier, doing hard refresh helped in my case. May be you can try the same and see if that works for you.
