There are two types of discussions: document-level and folder-level.
- Document-level: Document-level discussions are created automatically when a new document is created and exist in both the Document Library (private) and Website (public) spaces. Author-to-author discussions and end user-to-author feedback are private to authors. End users contribute feedback via the Send Feedback link available on website content pages. There are also public discussions that are viewable within the website context. These include end user-to-end user discussions and end user-to-author discussions. End users contribute to these public discussions via the Website Discussion link available on website content pages.
- Folder-level: Folder-level discussions are created by Administrators in the Document Library or the website. They are not tied to a specific document or folder but exist as independent entities. Administrators can create as many different discussions as they like in a folder and they can be moved to other folders within their context. That is, Document Library folder-level discussions must remain in the Document Library and website discussions must remain in the website context.
Discussions can be viewed by authors and administrators via the Server workspace.
