Here is a first look at our new product which brings the collaborative power of today's social media tools to your out-of-the-box SharePoint discussion boards.

SharePoint 2010 Discussion Board Restyled Commentary

Commentary works with your out-of-the-box SharePoint discussion boards to provide a rich social experience for your users. Some of the many features include:

Links

Links

Commentary enables your team to have a more valuable discussion by including links with their posts. It will pull in a summary based on either the meta tags or the text content of the page. It also gathers images from the page to allow the selection of a thumbnail.

Liking

Liking

Commentary keeps your team engaged in the conversation by allowing users to "like" posts that interest them. These likes use the out-of-the-box social features in SharePoint, so they show up in a user's feed on their MySites. Commentary can also setup an alert to notify you of future replies to a liked post.

Improved Thread Styling

Improved Thread Styling

Discussion boards include a threaded view out-of-the-box; but the style differences between posts and replies are subtle and can cause confusion. Commentary reduces confusion by changing the styling to clearly define posts and replies from each other.

Sharing

Sharing

Commentary allows you to quickly and easily share a post with other users. Using the Share button, you can email other users a link to the discussion to get them to engage.

Web Part Customization

Web Part Customization

Many of Commentary's features can be customized directly from the web part properties tool pane such as: Custom CSS URL, jQuery URL, and List Title.
