Topic on Talk:Structured Discussions

What should I do to read the message appears at a certain date in the topic? The usual history with the help of round buttons I can see what posts have been added in the past few hours, without attempting to look at the time stamps. On the page history Flow (this applies especially to the big topics) there is no such. However, with notifications come links with which illuminated colored line new posts. In Flow will be an opportunity to highlight new messages between two dates?

Having a diff system as it is on a classical History page may be complicated: each message is independent.

When I click on a notification concerning new messages on Flow, I have a highlight on the Flow board (example). Don't you?

If I understand correctly, there are 2 requests in this topic.

A way to link to a Flow topic (and board), so that it highlights (with the blue line) just the messages that were added or edited:

  1. between a specific time-span. E.g. just highlighting posts #3, 4, 5, in Topic:Sptu5vsmp6qy7jta (not posts #1, 2, 6, or more). Possibly using the round radio-buttons, similar to
  2. after a specific time-stamp. E.g. highlighting posts #3, 4, 5, 6, in Topic:Sptu5vsmp6qy7jta (not posts #1, 2). Possibly using the cur links.

This would (for example) let people who are not subscribed to a Topic, to still easily keep up-to-date with any changes.

Or (another example) to let people who are investigating a historical discussion, to more easily see what state an entire topic was in, at a specific time.

Is that accurate and complete? If so, #1 is Phab:T108407 and #2 is now phab:T114302. (Can you think of any other example use-cases, to add to that?) Thanks.

Yes. When debate comes to life in older topics. I not follow the theme, but suddenly it is at the top. And I have to scroll all in search of fresh dates. Topic:Sdoatsbslsafx6lw
