Discussion List: delivering posts to your inbox

Office 365 / SharePoint Blog

The discussion is a great place to have conversations with your colleagues. You can pose questions, post observations, comment on existing discussion items, or even “like” posts if you want. You can post announcements such as policies or other stories here.

Your stories and posts are all categorized by topic. In our division, we have department and committees as our categories, which will allow our teams to be able to refer back to information sent from other teams in the division.

You can have the discussion list posts delivered to your inbox.

From the discussion list page:

  • Click on the LIST tab
  • Choose Alert Me
  • Set an Alert

From the New Alert screen, add the site name in front of the title.

Change Type: If you choose immediate notifications, I recommend you choose New items are added rather than All Changes.

When to Send Alerts: Choose your preferred option. For daily or weekly notifications, I recommend you set your time and day outside of normal working hours so you get a full day or week worth of changes at once.
