One question we get asked a lot is what are kudos or an accepted solution, or what's the point of them?




Kudos are a way to recognise the contribution of a fellow community member. You may agree with their opinion in their post, you think they've provided some great info, gone the extra mile and just deserve a pat on the back. It might not seem important to some users, but to those who contribute to the community on a regular basis (in their own time) appreciate being acknowledged for their contributions. So if you see something that was helpful to you or the rest of the community, giving a kudos is only a click away.




An accepted solution is in important for 2 reasons. It not only recognises the contribution of another user, it also marks an entire thread as "solved" so that other users know to read through it for a resolution. You can only accept a solution if you're the original user to post within a thread so they're much less common then kudos but equally important.
