Discussions about a document

  Asked By: Stevie    Date: May 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 853

I have created a PowerPoint document that I want other members of my
team to review and I have created several discussion points for them
to review as they are reviewing the document. I am struggling with
finding the best way to let the team members know that there has
been a discussion started within the document. When you open the
document by double-clicking on it on the SharePoint site you don't
see the discussion points or a way to pull them up. If you use the
drop-down and choose the Discuss option and then we could see the
questions but how does the team know that there are discussion

I also noticed that after the first time of opening the document,
there was a new button at the bottom left of the screen labeled
Discussions that you could use to eventually get to the questions.

This is my first time using this feature and love the fact that you
can look at the document at the same time that you are reviewing the
questions but I definitely need some suggestions on how to let
others know about the discussion.

all I can think of is to post an announcement and make sure
everyone has an alert setup for the announcements list. That way you
could go into detail about how to use the Discussions feature  and then
use the announcements for other issues in the future.

There isn't a way out of the box to automatically alert users about
changes to a particular document.
