Editor's review

As a collaboration tool the Microsoft SharePoint platform is counted amongst the very best applications available today. However when it comes to facilitating real time discussions, it has several drawbacks and this is where a tool like HarePoint Discussion Board 1.0 comes in picture. It claims to offer seamless interactivity by managing real-time discussions through threads and all this is achieved without reloading the page. In addition it comes loaded with a host of other features including capacity to handle multi-level discussions and easy moderation tools.

The HarePoint Discussion Board 1.0 essentially runs above the standard SharePoint discussion board and thus it is easy to backup and migrate its contents. For starting a discussion you need to create a thread and then post a message. You can add attachments to your message and even edit them after they have been published. When someone replies to your message, you just need to click on the show option to display the comment. The tool tracks the comments in a time bound fashion quite similar to the way FaceBook posts are displayed. Similarly it displays the profile picture of the person making the post. As an administrator you can view all the discussions taking place from the Management screen and choose to moderate if necessary. You can also remove a thread completely too. The message board can be added to you intranet website within minutes and given its intuitive interface, your teams can quickly grasp its working. Further the application comes with a 30 day trial whereby you can test it for free.

Overall we find the versatile HarePoint Discussion Board 1.0 as a good add-on to the SharePoint platform and it can serve as a productivity enhancer for SME teams. Owing to its stellar performance and simple editing features it earns a score of four rating stars.
