My Favorite option in SharePoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
In SharePoint 2010 we would like to achieve a functionality like "My Favorite". For example in discussion board, 1. We will be creating a view called "My Favourites". 2. The users can select few discussions from the discussion board and say "Add to My Favorite". So that these discussions will be shown to the particular user under the "My Favourtes" view. 3. If any other user logged in, then thes above selected items should be viewed under normal view (say which lists all the discussions). 4. Based on the user his favourite (marked as favourite by him) list items (discussion items) should be listed under this view. Is there any equivalent functionality in SharePoint to achieve this behavior. This may sound like the "I likt it" option in SharePoint. But the problem here is the I like it  option in SharePoint tags all the contents in My Site which is not required in our scenario. Any guidance to achieve this functionality would be appreciated.

Powerpoint ppsx files open as read only in sharepoint with not option to edit

With Powerpoint 20007 in sharepoint(MOSS 2007) the PPSX files are opening in read only mode with no option to edit to be found. 2nd issue is ppsx files do not open on any persons computer as a show.  Is it possible to change this? How do I change this so I can edit the slides? Current "bad" solution is to save to local drive than upload them over the location  on sharepoint.

Document is read-only in SharePoint, but user sees "check out" option in Office 2007 / Word / Excel

I am finding that when there is a document library in SharePoint with checkin/checkout required, if a user with read-only ("Visitor") permissions opens a document from that library, the document will open as read-only in Word, Excel, etc., but the user will see the "Server Document" bar with the message "To modify this document, you must check it out" and the "check out" button.  When the user tries to check the document out, they are asked to authenticate, and then receive the error "Cannot perform this operation.  The file has been deleted or someone else has it checked out."    How is it possible to prevent a user with read-only rights in SharePoint from seeing the "Check out" option in Word or Excel?

lost edit page option in sharepoint



  I created a couple of sharepoint sites from a parent site created by my manager, I have full control privileges and created each page the same way, but for some reason i have lost the edit page option on some pages. I checked with our "helpless" desk, and they claim no pages are checked out and my permissions are as they should be. they claim i removed the option through sharepoint designer, but at no point "atleast not intentionally" did i remove this option from the page. can someone tell me how to restore this option? or do i just have to start from scratch.

SharePoint 2010 Custom Page Layout - No Publish option available



We built several custom page layouts in MOSS which we are upgrading to SharePoint 2010. If the page layout has custom code behind, the "Publish" tab is not available in the Ribbon. But if we change the Inherits attribute of the Page Tag to default "Micrsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage", we see the Publish Tab.

For example if the custom page layout has <%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="Custom Namespace,Custom Assembly,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken="
    meta:progid="SharePoint.WebPartPage.Document"  %> , we dont see the Publish Tab in the ribbon.

The code from the code behind file executes when we access the page.

But if we change the Page Attribute to the default

<%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage,Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"
    meta:progid="SharePoint.WebPartPage.Document" %> , we see the Publish Tab.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Out of the Depths of SharePoint's XML Hell

I described how a new open source tool called sporm significantly simplifies unit testing SharePoint. Making SharePoint unit testable is my absolute favorite feature of sporm because SharePoint is notoriously hard to unit test. But sporm provides other benefits as well and its ability to pull us out of the depths of verbose loosely typed XML hell and into LINQ excellence is next on my list of favorite features. So in this post I'll describe the pre-sporm technique of querying with CAML, how to query data using sporm, and finally how sporm supports SharePoint's unique architecture of allowing multiple content types per list and what that means to you.
