New release – Social Squared SPFx Discussion Board

Our latest release of Social Squared is now available for SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams and includes the following improvements.

  1. Notification Emails from within Microsoft teams. This update uses Microsoft Teams deep linking to posts from the subscription email. If you are subscribed to a forum or to a topic within Social Squared, any new topics or replies to topics will send an email linking back to the post from within the email. Note, that the link to the post is generated from where the new topic or reply to the topic was generated. So, if a topic that you are subscribed to is replied to from within SharePoint rather than Teams, the URL construction will take place within SharePoint and will take you (the subscriber) to the SharePoint page to view the reply.
