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?
I am using content approval in a discussion.
The problem is:
whenever administrator approves a pending post then Admin`s image replaces post creator`s image.
I want to display the image of post creator (or who reply a post) not the image of last modifier image.
Hello,We are planning to start a discussion board / forum on our SharePoint environment. The default SP 2007 look and feel does not meet our requirements, we want a bit more user friendly look and feel. We will go to SP 2010 not long after release, can someone maybe post a print screen of an example of SP 2010 discussion board? Or extra info about the differences with SP 2007? Can find those on the internet.Thanks!Regards,Joeri
I started to work with SharePoint 2010 and VS2010 C#.
I already have created a Discussion Board in SharePoint
I want to add this discussion board to VS2010 and I want to make some modification on it.
Enable or disable a field depend on specific user.
I want to make some events too.
Please advice how I can do that.
I need to customize a discussion board to get custom formating. I am inserting a dataview of the discussion boar that has the subject field between others fields.
The problem that I have is that when it is in dataview form, the subject field is not anymore a link to the subject. So I thought that it will be like other list, just placing a <a href. But it is not the case. The link to the subject
is Flat.aspx and then some other stuff. So my question is how do I re-create the url link of the subject?
I have created a custom discussion list definition using Visual Studio 2010 in SharePoint 2010. I had an issue, since by default, Visual Studio creates the custom discussion list definition as custom list. So, I have modified the my own Schema.xml with the
standard SharePoint discussion Schema.xml by adding views section.
Could anybody face this problem? Please suggest on how to resolve this issue.

How to post to Discussion board in sharepoint from external email id?
I have done all necessary settings in central admin.
In SharePoint 2007, i created a discussion board.
The requirement is,
1) a mail should be triggered saying, "New Post added" to a person & 'Post-Creator' when a new post is posted.
2) And when someone comments on the post a mail must be triggered saying, " Post Updates" to person, 'Post-Creator' & 'Commenter'.
How can i do this. Also i must be able to customize the contents of the mail.
I tried creating a workflow. But, i don't know how to differentiate both the conditions. Can someone give me a clear answer..
I want to encourage our team to use SharePoint's Discussion Board feature, while ensuring them that they will remain "anonymous".
I thought of creating a Discussion Board Webpart instance named "Suggestion Board" and then tried to associate workflow that basically would run on "Item creation" or "Update" to change the "Created By" column's content to "Anonymous" if "Today=Today" (...always...)
I got as far as the "If Today equals Today" and then I am stumped on how to update the "Created By" field to "Anonymous"... There does not seem to be a way to stuff "Anonymous" into the"Created By" Column... Can anyone offer a little help?
I get a huge fire alarm every month or two. Our users like to post and receive all the SharePoint lists from Outlook, but sometimes there will be mass reposts of old items, or deletion of mass items when they aren't even logged into SharePoint, or deletes
a mass of discussion board entries when (again) the user isn't even in SharePoint nor deleted them from Outlook. I can't recreate the issue, and it seems completely at random. Any ideas what I can do to recreate, fix, or find out what is causing this?
This is a really big issue.
Its a MOSS 2007 server with Outlook 2010, and they are connected (Actions -> Connect with Outlook).
