Some content types in GeoNet, such as discussions and documents, can be marked as official or outdated to help other users determine the outcome of the content in question.  


To mark a content outcome:Content outcomes

  1. Navigate to the content to be marked.
  2. Under the Actions menu located on the right side of the content, choose the desired content outcome option: Mark as Outdated or Mark as Official.
  3. If you mark content with an outcome, it will be displayed above the title of the content and list the user who marked the outcome.
  4. If you wish to change the outcome to something else (for example: changing something from Official to Outdated), select the new outcome, and confirm the selection.


Note: Outdated will allow you to enter a URL to the more updated content to redirect the user.


Why is the Success outcome allowed to be included with the other outcomes?

Outdated and Official can only be applied to the top-level piece of content (example: the blog post, document, or discussion).
