OOTB Discussion Board

  Asked By: Tara    Date: Jan 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1942

Is there a way to modify OOTB discussion board Threaded view in SPS. OOTB there are four columns Subject, Replies, Posted By Modified. Using Modify settings and columns I added another choice field Status with values Open, Close and add to default view. Is there a way to modify Threaded View and make that column available.

I already used Serge's solution, and I found out Serge's discussion  .stp file was only for WSS not for Portal but after some modifications to the template I was able to use it for Portal too.

My original question was how to add  a new column  in the default threaded  view. I added  a column Status to the discussion board  and added to the default(Threaded view) but it doesn't show up in threaded view.
