For as long as I remember, users have been asking for the ability to have conversations on SharePoint list items and documents.
And for years we have had not so good hacks to get this to work…Wiki Pages, Appending Comment Fields, Lookup Lists, SharePoint Newsfeed, Yammer, 3rd Party tools and Apps, and a ton of other kludgy solutions.
