Can we allow the comment section inside the “Discussion Board” list to show more than 20 replies

We have added a Discussion Board list to our sharepoint online classic team site. enter image description here

Currently when we click on a discussion item, the main view for each discussion will show maximum of 20 replies, and then it will show a paging link as follow:-

enter image description here

but most users miss this paging and think that the discussion only contain 20 replies. so can i expand the replies section to show more than 20? using the UI or using PnP script to?

Threaded discussion UI for my app

In the system I am developing, I need to create a UI for managing customer notes. A customer note is a textual note related to a customer that a customer service representative writes. For example, a note might look like:

Please note that this customer does not like to be called early in the morning. If callback is required, do it in the afternoon.

Also, a note can be “replied to”, for example:

Note 1 (written by customer service rep a):

The customer didn’t receive her order, what happened?

Note 2 (written by customer service rep b):

It turns out that the customer entered the wrong address

Note 3 (written by customer service rep a):

I have called the customer and asked her for her address. It should be all good now.

A response can only be one level deep, as in the example above.

My idea to present this is as follows:

Have one big grid that displays all the notes (including metadata about each note). Notes that are part of the same reply chain, as in the above example, will appear next to each other in the grid, with the most recent note in the reply chain appearing at the top. To convey that each note in a reply chain is”connected”, I want each note in the reply chain to have the same colour in its leftmost column, as in the image below. Is this a good idea? So as you scroll through the grid, you will quickly get a sense of which notes are related, and which are not. enter image description here

By the way, this is a desktop application written in a legacy framework that can’t do very much. So please don’t suggest anything too fancy.

Discussion replies via E-mail creates new thread

I have a Community site which contains a Discussion List, I have configured In-coming emails for this list and subscribed the alerts for the same list. When i send a email to the configured list email id for first time it creates a new Discussion post as expected, but after that if i try sending email to same post for reply via mail received from alert it creates a new Post insted of reply to discussion. Has anyone faced similiar situation ? please help me to fix this.

How to trigger SharePoint workflow with Like/Unlike clicks for Team Discussion

I created a workflow for a team discussion list, and enabled the rating system. I set the WF to be triggered when Item is changed. Since users could like Like/Unlike the items, it in turn changes the “Number of Likes” field. I assume the item is changed so it should trigger the WF. However this doesn’t seem to be the case, the WF is only triggered when I change some other fields like Title for example.

Is Like/Unlike (Number of Likes) a separate algorithm when SP checking if an item is “Changed”. If so, any way I could have the WF be trigger on the item if someone “Liked” it?

How i can remove views from my discussion board List name “Answered Questions” & “Unanwered questions”

SharePoint 2013 Discussion Board problems

I have a SharePoint discussion board for my company where we solicited questions for a large CEO meeting. The basic discussion board template was changed to include the following fields: Question short text; full question; submitter, #likes.

enter image description here

This is NOT my discussion board as it is on a proprietary intranet but will serve to ask my questions as the view is pretty similar.

1) How to add back in the reply feature?
– when I modified the original discussion board fields and created my own view to add likes, I somehow lost the ability to ‘reply’ to the questions. I added a column for ‘reply’ to the view but that just adds a blank column to the right of the table. I would like the ability to add the official answer to the questions.

2) Hyperlinked titles not working – My board looks similar with the title in hyperlinked blue font and the three ellipsis. When you click the hyperlink it doesn’t take you to the full question. It goes to a blank main discussion board page instead. Not sure what is going on with that feature but it is confusing. Since the page itself truncates the full question body to two lines, I was hoping users could click the hyperlink to read the full text. If I change the view to show the full question I lose the ability to ‘like’ the question. I can only pick one option for some reason. (you can click the ellipsis and view the full question but why doesn’t the hyperlink do the same thing?)

  1. I would like the ability for the official answer to be displayed below the question but as I stated above, if I change to a newsfeed type view I lose the ability to ‘like’ the question.

  2. I’d also like to add the ability to ‘like’ the answer but since I can’t even figure out how to add the ‘reply’ to the question, I can’t get that far.

Is this all possible?

Thank you, Brian

SharePoint 2013: Discussion Board reply Alerts

I’m wondering if there is a way to set up an alert that lets me know if someone has added a reply to one MY posts on a discussion board.

I can set alerts for the discussion board in general (new item added, item modified, etc), but can’t seem to find a way to do this.

Is there an OOTB solution for this? If not, can I configure a workflow instead?

Note: I’m looking to avoid using Event Receivers if possible.
