I'm working with a SharePoint 2010 Standard license and only have client-side functionality, SharePoint Designer, JQuery, etc.
I have a workflow that creates a Discussion thread in a Discussion Board list. I need another workflow to reply to that thread using content from a particular list item. I know this is not possible using a straight Action in SPD given there is no "Reply" field for the Discussion since they are actually two different content types. I've tried creating an item of content type Message (replies) with the same Subject at the Discussion; however it doesn't nest it under the Discussion but simply shows it as a top level item.
I've also tried using Send an Email action to send an email to the Discussion list with Subject RE:DiscussionSubject, but that just creates a new discussion.
Has anyone been able to find a way to do this without VS custom code?
