Is a Modern SharePoint Discussion board capability in the roadmap?

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

We have many requests for discussion forum capabilities. Now, we know the classic version still exists for SharePoint and is/will be deprecated. We also know that Yammer is positioned as a replacement BUT we do not have Yammer enabled (yet), so I want to know if a new modern version of discussion forum content type is on the roadmap?

 

In addition, am interested in hearing what others are using instead?

 

Thanks

Alon

@Alon Goldberg there's nothing showing on the public roadmap here and I doubt there ever will be. With the investment in Yammer and the availability of Yammer Conversations and Yammer Highlights web parts for embedding in SharePoint pages, it would be a backward step for Microsoft to announce discussion boards for the modern SharePoint experience.

I hope you get Yammer soon, it's what we use at my company (55000+ staff).
