Sharepoint Workflow Vs. WFF

The title is not very accurate. I am currently developing an addition to a site that allows multiple people to enter data. I need/want to use WFF, because the people will enter the data in a certain sequence. It is a customer complaint form. A salesman will fill out the initial form and submit the complaint. The complaint will be reviewed and either dismissed or moved forward to the investigation segment. Finally the complaint will be handled and closed. My dilemma is that I am also impl

Sharepoint Creating Site Templates from MOSS publishing sites

I know that creating a site template from a MOSS publishing site is not currently supported by Microsoft. Can anyone tell me if creating a basic site, then turning on the publishing feature, then creating a site template is supported - I would guess not as it's probably the same as creating a publishing portal?

Sharepoint WSS licensing and pricing

Looking for a clear answer on the licensing costs of WSS 3.0. I've read no fewer than 50 web sites, including every relevant MS resource, and the answer still isn't clear. We are a web host looking to provide WSS solutions to our clients as follows: Scenario 1 Company extranet with forms authentication. Every user will be an authenticated employee, but we will host the web server and sql server and make it publicly accessible. 400 employees. Same question for 1200 employees. Scenario 2 Int

Create SharePoint web page outside of document library

I'm reasonably new to SharePoint 2007 and trying to move from an ASP.NET to SharePoint way of thinking has been an interesting experience! I would like to create a page at the same level as the default.aspx page in a subsite. The "SharePoint way" of doing things involves putting the page into a document library. I am reluctant to do this as the breadcrumb navigation of the page then includes the name of the libarary but I would like the library to be transparent to the user. I can create a pag

Hide lists from "All Site Content" page of SharePoint site

I wonder if there is a way to hide some document library lists that are shown when the user navigates to the "All Site Content" page in SharePoint, and I wonder if there is a programmatic way to achieve this. (If possible using WSS). I need to hide many lists from this view, these lists will be accessed from the links inside a link list (this link list is the only I want the user to see). Any help will be appreciated.

SharePoint Windows Workflow breaks when we deploy it

We have developed a custom visual studio workflow for SharePoint MOSS. It creates tasks for a document approval process and works fine on our development machines. We are using a main workflow activity and one custom child activity. We use binding on the properties to pass them throughout the workflow, all standard stuff for windows workflow, we think. When we deploy this workflow to our test server, which is a small farm, our taskproperties/workflowproperties all seem to evaluate to null. We

Sharepoint SPView.Clone Method

I'm showing a view within a webpart and I update this view to filter the list items according to the logged on user's groups. Is there a way to clone the view and update it leaving intact the original one? I need this cloned view to be temporarary since I don't need it after rendering it. I know there's a SPView.Clone method but it's little documented...

How to have multiple views for sharepoint documents?

I have a sharepoint with a lot of documents stored in it. I would like to have different views for these documents. One view would be by "project" to see all related project documents, another view would be "Design Documents" to view all design documents across all projects. Is there a way to do list so that there is only 1 copy of the document?

Sharepoint Failed to create feature receiver object from assembly/FileNotFound

During solution deployments & Feature activation, I am facing an on/off issue where the system is unable to find & load the FeatureReceiver class. Mostly it is file not found exception (even though the assembly is there in the GAC). I checked over the net and this seems it a common issue with solutions (wsp) packaging DLL to be GACed. (But, no one has any clue or solution!) What is the recommendation and guideline to fix this issue? We are setting the flag to reset IIS in my solution def

Create a Sharepoint page but don't show in breadcrumb

I'm struggling to do something which I thought should be straight forward, basically I need to create an aspx page which I now realise must be put into a document library but the problem I have is it's only one page and when the page is displayed the breadcrumb has a link to the document library. We really don't want the users to be able to get to the library via the breadcrumb and just want to show the page. From one of my other questions some other helpful people made some suggestions like p

SharePoint itemDeleting evert is not working

Problem with URL in IIS7.5 + Sharepoint Services in TFS2010

my question is kinda simple but i just don't know how to get it. I have this dedicated server at home, used almost just for Team Foundation Server, I did the single server configuration wizard so I have Sharepoint Services running along with SQL Server and IIS 7.5, the problem is that every single link and URL on the sharepoint sites are generated from the local Computer name, which is TFS.

SharePoint -ways to manage content

a client is requiring an Internet-facing CMS system on MOSS 2007. I am trying to identify all the possible ways to manage content -this is what I came up with: Web parts through browser. Web parts through Designer. Lists (Columns and Content Types as required). Is there any other way I am missing? Thank you very much. EDIT: This is really a high-level question. What options does SharePoint offer to non-developers, non-designers to edit pages of an Internet-facing, marketing site? Thank yo

SharePoint 2010 - Creating a custom document library template

I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to create a custom document library template for SharePoint 2010. When a user clicks on the Libraries link on the quick launch menu of a new SharePoint site, and then clicks the Create button, the Create dialog is launched. I know this dialog window hosts a Silverlight control, but obviously there is a way to create custom template types in this window. There is even a category that is called Blank & Custom. I've tried copying and modifying the Doc

Sharepoint RunWithElevatedPrivileges seems to hide my logging

Hey all, I am running class on our IIS 7 server with all the Sharepoint yimmer yammer installed. I have webservice that I created using the walkthrough on the MSDN site. I found that I needed to use the ElevatedPrivilleges call in order to get my LINQ classes to work.

SharePoint development nightmares

I thought I'd give SharePoint development a go, to broaden my understanding of Microsoft technologies and ran into a situation I refuse to understand. I have a new web application created: http://localhost:11523 and set up the site collection as required. I can browse to the web site fine, without any issues, but now I want to start developing against this, using the object model. Right, so after I struggled with SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost:11523"); I figured that I'm not runnin

I got a backup of a Sharepoint 2010 site that I created from our client's production server so that I can make some new changes to it on my staging server. I can restore the site collection from the backup without a problem but when I try to create a backup of the same site on my staging server, I always get the error "Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object". Before the error is given however, a small part of the backup file is created. If I try to run the Backup-SPSite

Add fields to Sharepoint Workflow Task

I'm currently making a pretty simple approval workflow in sharepoint using sharepoint designer. One of the design goals that we have for this workflow is that we want to minimize the amount of custom coding that we have to do so I'd appreciate answers that involve using sharepoint designer instead of whipping out VS. So the workflow should start when a person adds an item to a list. When the workflow kicks off it would create a task and and assign a due date of +2 business days and assign the

Is it possible to compare current user to a SharePoint list/group and switch views if they belong?

So I have a list of managers in my SharePoint site, and I am able to get the current user by using a web service and storing their name into a control. Is it possible to compare this name to everyone in that list/group to check if they are a manager so that the form can switch views to the manager section? Right now I created a drown down control which pulls in values from the list and sets the default value to the contact. But it can only store and compare one contact. How could I have it comp

Upgrading Team Site for TFS from Sharepoint 2007 to sharepoint 2010

We are currently using TFS 2010 and have a Team site of SharePoint 2007. We are currently not using the Team site (we tried out a few things but at the moment its no problem to just remove it). But we want to use the Team site and thought that we might as well upgrade it to 2010 before starting to use it. Its probably easier to upgrade from a pretty clean install than doing it later. So.. Is it best to upgrade our site.. or should we maybe install a new SharePoint 2010 on the side and then sw

SharePoint 2007 list item approval workflow - displaying approver comments in a list

I'm working on a SharePoint 2007 workflow to develop a user feedback process as follows: User adds a new item to a list (i.e. comments, issues, concerns, etc.) Management is then notified of the new item by e-mail and prompted to respond.

Sharepoint Work Item Timer Job not firing

In my site (SP2010) I've created a trigger which adds a work item to the queue, through the SPSite.AddWorkItem method. This seems to do well, since the ScheduledWorkItems table is being filled with the correct data. Time is set in UTC and is the current or past time. ID's are all set OK as well. So the table has all the right data. However, the custom created Work Item processor, derived from SPWorkItemJobDefinition, with the correct ID, is never being fired. The AppPool user who adds work item

SharePoint security overview - where to start?

I need to read-up on SharePoint security. Can anyone recommend where to start? The areas I need to look into are: Security of remote clients which use SharePoint web services (SOAP or RESTful). Security of data sitting on SharePoint. Authentication of users. User permissions. At the moment, I'm unsure of where to start or even what to Google. I guess a check-list of things to read up on would great.

Detecting the search settings of a SharePoint 2010 site using PowerShell

We have an extranet that isolates groups into separate site collections. In order to prevent information leakage through search, we will set all sites search visibility setting to, "never index ASPX pages".

It reports only the root site of each site collection. I will add a loop for all sites in a site c
