- Organisation of around 400 people, spread across different teams, across different offices.
- Sharepoint 2010 in place and already setup with multiple sub-sites per team.
- Need to setup discussion boards for the users to make use of.
What considerations should be taken into account for setting up discussion board(s) that will promote the communication both within teams and across teams?
Should we take the approach to setup multiple discussion boards per team?
The pro would be that the team could see posts specifics to their team.
Cons include the fact that there is only <20 people in the team, so how active will this sub-board be? It also means that for people that are in multiple teams, they will need to register for alerts across multiple boards. Or can one view be setup that can be subscribed to for multiple boards?
Is there a good approach where one super discussion board can be setup, but filtered based upon who your logged in as, or by tags perhaps?
Understand the Q is a little subjective, but the answer I am looking for is a summary answer to the problem specified, that would be useful to anyone who is about to setup discussion boards for an organisation. Use comments and I can adjust if necessary or a moderator can edit accordingly.
