We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request.
We are encountering following issues with this form:
Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?
Hi All Gurus...
I'm just looking for a way to resize the form field input boxes for a custom list form. I don't think I'm understanding how the displaysize attribute works. It doesn't take "px" or maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing. I know this is a easy question
Pls help its urgent
I am working with a custom edit form in SharePoint designer and I notice that when the form is displayed it shows the form field title
in the column on the left and also in a tab directly above each field in the column on the right. My question is how do I remove those tabs? IOW I just want to show the form field title on the left and the form field on the right; I don't want those
grey tabs above the form field.
I have a requirement to create "Service Request" form for 3 types of users namely "End Users", "Reviewer" and "Manager".
End users will submit the request --> Reviewer will update the effort in man day --> Manager will approve the SR form. Assuming there are 10 different fields for each and the workflow and email is in place for each level.
I'm planning to use SharePoint 2007 custom list form.
1) What is the best approach to create Service Request form?
2) Can I use SharePoint Designer alone to achieve this OR Do I need Visual studio?
3) Is it one custom list form containing all the 30 elements (10 fields each) OR 3 different lists?
Please advice. Thanks.
Due to some reasons, we don't want to take InfoPath form; Instead Custom List form.
In sharepoint designer i am editing NEWFORM.aspx for a custom list and adding a custom list form to the page. When i try add item i get a correlation error : "hiding key filters and downgrading tree functionality to legacy ListViewWebPart(v3) level
for this list."
Any ideas? Thanks
Custom field types provide a powerful way to define a reusable SharePoint column definitions.

Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.
It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).
Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they
I also tried the solutions listed here:
But they don't fix the problem.
So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.
I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms. I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields. When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom
List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.
Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.
I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.
Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?
