Live Community opens in browser when attempting to answer.

A question for the Profile folks:

I find it a little curious that the "Live Community" window opens with profile, but when I attempt to answer a question, it opens a browser and makes me sign in again.

Is there a problem with the software or is this by design.  I would prefer to just use the interface that comes with the software, or.... lose the community window in profile and just open a browser window to begin with.

If you don't want the Live community browser window to open automatically when Profile is launched it can be turned off within Profile.

On the top tool bar go to Options > Environment Options > System > uncheck Live Community/enable live community

Should you want to go back to the installation default where Live community Opens on start up go back and change your selection.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
