SharePoint Discussion Column
SharePoint Discussion Column Description:
SharePoint Discussion Column is a custom column to record users' discussion when they edit the item. The SharePoint discussion thread can be listed in chronological order with discussion contents and discussants' names.
With SharePoint Discussion Column, you don't have to choose "create version each time you edit an item in the list" when you select the "Append Changes to Existing Text" option of Rich text column.
SharePoint out-of-box Multiple lines of text column provides an option "Append Changes to Existing Text" to let users append their own comments and discussion without replacing others.
But it has two defects.
First, you must enable version creation when item edited, but it's troublesome when you don't want to create new version every time you append changes.
Second, every time you edit the item, a new record will be produced in the record history whether empty or not. It is inconvenient for users to view a lot of records with empty contents.
We develop SharePoint Discussion Column to solve these problems. When you append records to SharePoint discussion thread, with our SharePoint Discussion Column, new version will not appear and empty records will not display.
SharePoint Discussion Column provides a custom column that allows users to record their discussion in the item without creating new version and recording empty contents.
