The Conversations tool needs some updating to run like the rest of the portal. Right now, you have to create a forum from module tools, assign the permissions, and then go to the conversations page to start using it. It would be great if we could streamline these into one location and create the forum straight from the conversations page.
We also were confused by how the subscribe button on the forum doesn't subscribe you to the threads. A "subscribe to all" button would help.
I've also requested this before, but we really need the ability to lock the "New Conversation" button to the forum moderators only. We post the topics and ask for replies, but our people are confused by having to hit reply on the first comment. This leads to a bunch of threads instead of responses, and then no one can find the original question.
