In addition to the chronological listing, you have three sorting view options at the top of the screen:

  • All Responses  - consolidates every post.
  • Unread - the posts you have not yet viewed.
  • Flagged - posts you find noteworthy. You can select the flag icon next to Reply on any given post, which makes navigation back to that post much easier.
