Can't create threaded view in Discussion board..

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I swear to science this worked before on a MOSS server at my old company - I had set up a discussion board, created a threaded view, and users could see the threads added, and use the expand option to see some of the replies.

I tried recently setting this up at my new company, both on a MOSS server, and a new 2010 server (that I just set up to trial Project Server 2010).

What is strange is for both servers, when I select create a new view, one of the options is the threaded view, I select that, add a name for the veiw, set it to the default view, add a other few columns, and then hit okay.

But it doesn't save the view - I have admin rights to the site, I can make other views, am I missing something here? Is there no longer an option to create a threaded view using the create view function?

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Discussion board template of SharePoint 2007 not working properly


Use case 1 – Discussion board to suggest change to documents

 User adds a suggestion. The discussion board needs fields like module name, document name, section name and reason for a change etc.


 Problem 1 – When I try to add fields to the discussion board – When a user wants to post a reply to a suggestion, user screen shows the new item form and all fields instead of just a reply or comment field. Need help how can I ensue user only sees reply or comment field?


 Problem 2 – If I make these changes in the discussion board template through SharePoint designer 2007 and later if we plan to upgrade to SP 2010. Do I have to redo the changes I did on old discussion board or will upgrade take care of migration of the changes to new discussion board template available with SP 2010?

Create a new list View Style

Hi, In SharePoint 2010 for XSLT List View Web Part you can assign different view styles using SharePoint Designer. For example "Basic Table", "Boxed" or "Shaded" etc. These styles just don't fit my needs. So my question is how can I create my own View Style which I can apply to any list? I came across "Customize XSLT > Customize Entire View" option under Design tab in SharePoint Designer which allows me to change the XSL stylesheet and control the rendering for a list. But how can I create my own list "View Style" which I would like to reuse with other lists too? Thanks, Hitesh  

Connecting a Discussion board to Outlook

Hi, I'm working on an application which takes a mail from a mailbox and imports it as a discussion board item on a sharepoint site. I have no problem importing the mail to sharepoint. When connecting the discussion board to outlook I cannot see the items inside that discussion board, but if I create a new discussion board item from sharepoint I have no problem seeing that item in my outlook. I'm using the AddDiscussionBoardItem method from this site, to import the email to sharepoint. Thanks in advance. -Michael
