In the new user interface of Google Groups, how do I see all the posts to the various groups made by me?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • You can still switch temporarily to the old group. I just added a comment, requesting the stats, because they ask you why you switch back – Theta30 Oct 26 '12 at 20:45
  • I am not sure if they changed it recently but my answer describes where to click to show your own posts: webapps.stackexchange.com/a/59368/25540 – Coops Apr 11 '14 at 10:10

You can access all your previous posts by viewing a post you have posted to previously.

  1. Locate your previous post (any of them - search groups for your name/handle/user-name)
  2. Next to your post, you will see "Post Reply" and a drop down arrow, click the drop down arrow and select "Show Activity"
  3. And there you go, now bookmark it :)

*Only the most recent posts are shown, but you can click the posts over time links in the calendar listed below the recent posts.

**Also, switching the recent posts category drop down box will switch the calendar list shown at the bottom.

    What a convoluted process, but it never occurred to me to search for my own name. Thanks! – xiankai Nov 21 '13 at 6:05

You can see all the topics started by you and even the ones for what you have replied by going to filters and selecting the appropriate filter type. hope this helps..!


There is no direct option to get this information, By default you can see (Group->About Group);

Most Active Posters
This month

Most Active Posters
All time

However you can search your name and you will get a count like Results: about 15 for Aamir.

There does not seem to be a way to do this currently.


On the left hand side of the page in the menu choices is a 'My discussions' section which does actually run a search (as you will see in the search box at the top) for:


although the actual 'My discussions' does appear to have a slightly nicer UI it does seem to have the same results.


If you create a filter you can set it to topics I replied to or topics I started.


Search using the term "author:me"

  • That only seems to work if you search within a particular group. When I "search all groups" I get nothing back. – ale Sep 16 '14 at 10:12
  • But its still useful – Xolve Sep 16 '14 at 12:30
