Threaded Discussions are a fully integrated feature of the environment and are displayed at the bottom of the InfoView portal. The system manages all threaded discussion information and stores it in the repository. Discussion threads can be added to Web Intelligence and Crystal Reports documents, as well as third-party managed documents like Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF.
