Conversation and Conversation Index are unique properties that you can use to create views for discussion folders so that people can view the history of responses to an item, also known as a conversation thread. For this section, the Product Ideas folder covered in Chapter 4, "Design a Custom Application," is used to provide an example of grouping by Conversation and sorting by Conversation Index.

Grouping by Conversation Conversation is a unique property that is inherited from the Subject field. For example, if you submit a standard Post item to a folder, the Conversation field of the item is set to the value of the Subject field. Thereafter, any responses made to the item automatically inherit the value of the Conversation field. As shown in Figure 8-18, the items in the Product Ideas folder are grouped by Product Category, and then by Conversation.
