Filter unanswered and answered questions

OK - so someone has asked this before. I'm going to do something I try to avoid. They got a good answer. I've lost the actual question/answer. So I clicked on the link.

It took me to

Here I could easily change the status from answered to unanswered using a status. Now if I go to my activity type - I can't filter by status. I don't think.

I go to ABAP development and display the questions. I don't see a way to check if it is answered or not.

I've bookmarked the link above. So my question is how do I change my screen to get that nice answered/unanswered feature from wherever I'm at?

    "Now if I go to my activity type - I can't filter by status. I don't think." - sorry, but not clear what do you mean!

    On the Q&A tag page like

    you can select "Unanswered"

    What else?

    P.S. For each tag there is a Q&A tag page, you can find it using the link in the question.

    • General tag page is a combined list of blogs and questions. Very slow. I use it only to view blogs.

      Q&A tag page is a list of questions with status filter. If you follow some tags you can switch between followed tags in the right menu.

    You are using general tag page with Blogs and Questions instead of Q&A tag page!

    For general tag page the filter "unanswered" is nonsense - answer for the blog?

    Just open any question and click on the tag link. The Q&A Tag page will open!

    Hello Michelle,

    I am very fond of using those pages as well. These types of pages are generally referred to as Questions Roll pages or Q&A pages for a particular primary tag. For example, if I want to check the latest unanswered questions from "Using", I go to the main Q&A page here:

    You can access that link by hovering the mouse over "Community" on the mega-menu up top and then clicking on "Questions and Answers". Once on that page, I can see the primary tags that I am following on the right side of the screen:

    I can then click on one of my followed tags to filter all Q&A related activities from that primary tag. Next, to get a chronological view of unanswered questions only, I then select "Created" as the Sort by criteria and then filter the results further by selecting "Unanswered Questions" under Status. For a tag like Using, these filters result in the following link:

    In this link, 486157991894093153608181816584982 is the tag ID, and ?sort=newest&filter=unanswered allows the browser to display only unanswered questions in a chronological view.

    Unfortunately our current functionalities do not allow us to distinguish unanswered questions from the user's activity streams. You can filter for general Q&A related activities by selecting the "Questions and Answers" from "Activity Type" to view all important Q&A activities from a particular followed primary tag.

    I understand that the different platforms generating and pulling content together can be confusing so I wanted to share what I do to keep track of questions from certain tags. Hope you find this useful!

    Best regard,
