TOZIT SharePoint Discussion Forum solution for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 released today!
Posted by Tobias Zimmergren
I started a project about 2 years ago with the aim of improving the discussion functionalities that comes out of the box with WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007. Since it was a spare-time project back then, I didn’t really have enough time to finish it off.
The last couple of months though, I’ve been working very hard to get this ship floating again and I am proud to say that we’re finally releasing version 1.0 of the TOZIT SharePoint Discussion Forum solution to the market.
