I've tried to figure out how to configure the threaded view of a discussion board (Sharepoint 2010) to sort the thread by reverse chronological order (most recent post first). No success so far. Thanks for helping.

I came across this helpful post when trying to sort the discussion board. The problem with this method is that in the 'flat' view - discussions having no replies are not shown. Anyone came across with this problem?

I got it to work right. I thought it was a good question. How the view should be set up is:


  • Threaded(threading)


  • First sort by: Threading -> Show items in descending order
  • Then sort by: Created -> Show items in descending order
  • Uncheck "Sort only by specified criteria"


  • Show all items without folders
  • Show this view: In folders of content type "Discussion"

This setup worked for me.
