Chapter 8. Sharing Office Documents > Office Web Discussions

Office Web Discussions

Office XP includes support for a feature called Web discussions. Using this capability, which was introduced in Office 2000, members of a workgroup can share comments about Office documents and Web pages, even when the members of the workgroup are scattered across wide geographic locations and don't have the capability to directly modify the documents themselves. Like many debuting Microsoft technologies, this feature is a classic 1.0 release—it's easy to see its promise, but also frustratingly difficult to configure and use.

Using a Web Server for Discussions

To participate in a Web discussion, you must have access to a Web server running Internet Information Server 4.0 or later with Office Server Extensions or SharePoint Team Services on a computer running Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows XP. You can also use Personal Web Server 4.0, included with Windows NT Option Pack 4.0, or Windows 2000's Personal Web Manager.
