HarePoint Discussion Board provides an ideal opportunity for interaction and collaboration among your team members empowered by discussion threads and feeds that deliver the "social" advantages to the workplace.
Unlike SharePoint's out-of-box discussion board feature and the range of available third party tools, HarePoint Discussion Board allows real-time discussion by showing all new posts, replies and comments in time of their appearance without page reloading.
HarePoint Discussion Board key features:
the solution provides different discussion views and appearance, so you can use the most suitable view for your specified case;

posted messages can be edited in-place or deleted if you don't like them;
moderation is available; moderators are able to approve or reject post in the thread in real-time mode;
add any type of attachments to your message; control their upload status in real-time and view picture previews;
existing out-of-the-box discussion board threads can be easily adopted for display with HarePoint Discussion Board;
