Problem with the dropdown when selecting a forum to move a thread to RRS feed

  • Question

  • I occasionally need to move TFS posts that have strayed into the SharePoint forums.

    I'd like of course to move them to the correct TFS forum but I'm finding that difficult.

    The problem is that the dropdown shows me the first n characters of the forum name and because the names of all the TFS forums start with the rather long "Team Foundation Server - " that is all I can see.

    So I tried looking at the order of the TFS forums (in another browser copy) as listed when you go to TechNet forums and saw that "Team Foundation Server - Administration" was listed third and I then selected the third forum in the drop down list. Needless to say that wasn't the Administration forum because I went there to check and my thread hadn't been moved there.

    Now this is a 22inch wide screen and I'm using a completely standard IE7 so there shouldn't really be any reason why the dropdown doesn't give me at least the possibility of seeing the full forum name that I am moving to.

  • Totally agree Mike, this is definitely something we need to address in the near future. Thanks for the feedback.
