Diverting SharePoint News comments to the Author
K: “Hi Ellen, can you post this on the ICT News page for me, please?”
E: “Sure Karla, will do and I’ll let you know when you can review it.”
K: “Can you make sure all comments are directed to me?”
E: “Uh…I do not know if that is possible, I will try to find out.”
The other day a reader of my blog asked me how you can send the News comments to the person mentioned as the Author (rather than the person who created the post). I did not have an answer ready, so I decided to find out and report. I love investigating these kinds of things and finding as many workarounds as I can! And yes, I have found a few workarounds.
SharePoint News is a feature in Microsoft SharePoint that enables users to create and publish news articles on their SharePoint site. These articles can be organized and displayed in a newsfeed on the site's home page or on a dedicated news page. SharePoint News is a useful tool for keeping team members informed about important updates, events, and announcements within an organization. It can be accessed from any device with a web browser, making it an easy way to stay connected and up-to-date.
