How to create discussion category for discussion board RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I create one discussion board in sharepoint. But I could not find interface to create discussion category for my discussion board like below:

     

    category 1:  weather discussion

              post a

              post b

    category 2:  hobby discussion

             post c

             post d

     

    All my posts can only be saved in discussion board in following way:

    post a

    post b

    post c

    post d

     

    Anyone knows how to create discussion category for discussion board through sharepoint interface? Thanks!

  • Hi,

     

    You can achieve this by

    a) Creating a custom column called Category in hte Discussion board

    b) Assign a value to this column for each discussion e.g. post a has this category column as Weather discussion while for post c Category column contains Hobby Discussion.

    c) Create a new view where you group your discussions by the Category column.
