SharePoint Forum Voting

SharePoint Forum Voting

Social Squared allows you to turn on post voting functionality so your users can vote topics and posts up or down depending on whether they find the information useful or unhelpful. This allows the best answers to questions to rise to the top. Users are also more keen to secure votes from their colleagues and will make sure their posts are adding value to the conversation.

Voting for topics and posts in SharePoint

If you are using Social Squared as a Q & A solution, turning the Forum Voting on and ordering the posts by the number of votes received allows the best answer to appear first and a true knowledge base to be created.

If you are using your forum as a discussion area you can turn post voting on but leave the topic to be ordered by the date and time the posts were created. This allows the topics to flow in a more understandable way.
