Discussion Column
Discussion Column for SharePoint was last modified: by

The Discussion Column for SharePoint web part simplifies the use of Multiple Lines of Text and corrects many of its weaknesses. It provides for a faster, more efficient interactions, cleaner data entry, more granular access and viewing of entries, greater control by both users and administrators, and unrestricted export.The main features of Crow Canyon's SharePoint Discussion Column versus the standard Multiple Lines of Text column are:

  • Puts Date Stamp and User Name on each entry -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text column does not do this unless “Append Changes to Existing Text” is selected, which requires Versioning to be turned on for the list.
  • Does not require Versioning to be turned on for the list -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text column requires Versioning to be turned on to use “Append Changes to Existing Text”, which can result in high data storage needs due to the many versions of each list item that are created.
  • Eliminates blank entries -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text column puts in a blank entry every time the item is saved, even if nothing was entered in the box
  • Can view entries from List View -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text opens the full item, not just the entries
  • Exports all entries to Excel and Access -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text column only allows export of the latest entry
  • Users can delete their entries, Admins can delete all entries -- the standard Multiple Lines of Text column does not allow previous entries to be deleted

Use the new Discussion Column for SharePoint for improved logging of tickets, tasks, leads, projects, and more!

The Crow Canyon Discussion Column is installed directly on a SharePoint server. It comes with a 30-day free trial provided upon purchase.
