About managing Web document discussions
The Web document discussions feature enables users to attach comments to a Web page or to any document that can be opened with a browser (such as .htm, .xls, .doc, and .ppt files). Users can place comments in the document or have them appear in the discussion pane at the bottom of the Web browser window. All comments are stored on the SharePoint team Web site. Anyone reviewing a document can view and reply to comments. The document owner can then review discussions and incorporate changes based on the feedback received.
Managing discussions involves:
Enabling or disabling discussions for the team Web site
Specifying discussion settings
Deleting old discussions
You can also specify whether team members can discuss any document on the Internet or just those on the team Web site. You can also specify how long discussion threads will be saved.
Note Don't confuse the Web document discussions feature with the discussion boards that you can create. A discussion board is a Web page on your team Web site that hosts discussions. The Web document discussions feature appears within individual documents.
On the Site Administration page, under Web Discussions and Subscriptions, click Manage web discussions.
Select the check box next to the Web document discussion that you would like to delete, and then click Delete.
Note If you don't see the Manage web discussions option, you are probably in a subweb and need to go to the top-level Web site of the server or virtual server. See your network administrator or ISP for more information.
