Is anyone missing 'items with no replies' filter in forums?

After over a year on New SCN I've realized that in Discussions there is no options to view questions with 0 replies. In SDN we had an option to see open questions (which still exists) but also questions with no replies.

I used this option once in a while to check for the questions that went unanswered for more than a few days. Sometimes I see a question on which I might have some knowledge, but not really enough to respond. However, if later I see it still sitting unanswered, I would go ahead and reply with as little as I know. I'm hoping it was helpful to the posters or at the least showed that someone cared.

I'd be willing to submit on Idea Place to get this option back, but am not sure anyone else really cares for it. Please post your suggestions.

Thank you.

    OK, by popular demand 😊 Idea has been posted.

    While I'm on it, maybe I should post an Idea to make the idea submission page less confusing. E.g. what on earth is the 'Specify' field (required!):

    Also sorry if I didn't pick the right category. By elimination it was kind of a toss between 'Other' and 'Platform Operations'. Since I had no idea what does 'Platform Operations' mean (does it have something to do with the offshore oil drilling?), out of fear of starting some kind of cataclysmic chain of events I had to pick 'Other'.

    This filter is missing and could be useful: it's come up a few times as suggestions.

    What we have now on SCN is a column showing the number of replies on the threads on the content tab view. Just filter by discussions and then for open threads: one of the columns shows how many replies on each thread listed.

    Jelena, many moderators used this feature and requested its return when we migrated platforms. I agree it's very helpful.

    I created a jive request for this long ago but as far as I know its not currently on their road-map 😭

    Until then Jason's proposed workaround is the way to go.

    Great memory, Jelena

    That would be useful to have back

    I don't like having to ask for enhancements which were base features before but I agree I did use that before.

    Please post on Idea Place and I will vote (but please post a link to your idea)

    Regards,

    Tammy

    Hi Jelena,

    I also used this option in SDN earlier.

    In current SCN you have somthing like Unanswered questions on right hand side next to the posts.

    However it gives you only 5 of the recent unanswered questions.

    Let's wait and see if we can get reply from Laura or someone from SCN team. 😊

    Regards,

    Gautham.

    Hello Jelena,

    Although Jason presented a kind of workaround I'd like to encourage you, too to place it as an idea in idea place. I'll vote it up for sure. :)

    Regards,

    Steffi.
