Workflow - automatically create discussion item using title field of of custom list item as its subj

Anyone any ideas as to how I can configure SharePoint to create a discussion item using the title of a list item. e.g. user creates list item on a custom list - SP automatically creates a Discussion thread for this list item in the discussions list. I'm guessing this can't be down OOTB . would I be looking at SPD or a coded solution ? regards, Counie

Workflow will not create a new Discussion


Trying to find a way for a workflow to create a new discussion using SharePoint Designer in WSS v3. The workflow action "Create List Item" will create an item in the existing discussion board, but it doesn't work like a discussion that is created manually. For instance, on the workflow created discussion, there is no threading and if you hit reply, it  creates a new discussion, not a reply message.


The idea behind this is someone is nominated for an award and for the person to receive the award they need 5 different people to agree to it and discuss why they should or should not get it. Trying to make this easy using the discussion board, but an open to any other ideas since the above doesn't seem to be possible.

Can't create threaded view in Discussion board..


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 a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.
