Chapter 19. Collaborating with Excel > Using Web Discussions

Using Web Discussions

If you have access to a SharePoint site, or to any Web server running Microsoft Office Extensions, you can take advantage of a collaboration feature called Web Discussions. This allows you to associate threaded discussions with particular Excel documents stored on the server. The discussion threads are stored in separate files and can be merged with the documents when you view those documents on the server.

To use Web Discussions, begin by choosing Tools, Online Collaboration, Web Discussions. A special toolbar appears at the bottom of your Excel window. (You can't move this toolbar, and you won't find it listed on the View, Toolbars menu. Unlike other toolbars in Microsoft Office applications, it doesn't have a Close box. To close it, click the Close tool.) If the document you're discussing was downloaded from a SharePoint site, your discussion text will automatically be stored on that site. If you're working with a non-SharePoint site, you'll need to specify the location of your discussion server before you can discuss. To do this, choose Discussions, Discussion Options, and click Add in the Discussion Options dialog box.
