SharePoint Server 2010 ships with Team Discussion Boards. This feature which adds to the same feature that was included with SharePoint Server 2007, delivers newsgroup capability to SharePoint. As a backgrounder, it is useful to reflect on the fact that newsgroups have provided a powerful collaboration feature to Internet users before the inception of the world wide web via the usenet protocol. With the advent of the world wide web, of course, participation in newsgroups proliferated.
Organizations that have implemented SharePoint Server 2010 with a commitment to driving user collaboration ought to look to the Team Discussion Board as a useful out of the box feature that can be successfully used for collaboration purposes. Team Discussion Boards empower registered users to initiate discussions and reply to them. Users with limited permissions can review stored discussions to obtain potentially useful information. Finally, team discussions constitute data lists in the overall SharePoint Server 2010 data repository; therefore users (including those providing governance for SharePoint) can search this data for information.
SharePoint users with contributor privileges can implement the Team Discussion Board feature. Rehmani Consulting Inc provides training content on Team Discussion Boards in video format on SharePoint-Videos. Our training video includes specific details about accessing discussions from the SharePoint ribbon and toggling between threaded and other types of views. Finally, we show users how to manage Team Discussion Boards as they would any other lists on a SharePoint sub site.
If your organization would like to empower users with the information they need to make more use of SharePoint, specifically in the area of group collaboration opportunities, then you will want to offer our video training content to sub site owners as well as the complete set of users with Contributor permissions for SharePoint. The Team Discussion Boards feature may be a perfect venue for enhanced team collaboration for your users. We offer a variety of subscription offers, from individual subscriptions to group and even enterprise subscriptions for this video content. We are confident that one of our subscription offers will be just the tickert for your requirement.
