Content and Structure reports

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, I have 4 production sites that I work on.  1 of these sites uses content deployment to the other 3 sites to keep the top page and navigation in sync between the 4 sites. We a sort of different from the norm, where content deployment is used for test -> production. At the global site I have created a content and structure report that shows only a users incomplete tasks.  I wrote the caml on a different system and got it running on a dev system, then copied the query to production.  Thing is that the query works everywhere except the one global site that content deploys to all other sites.  If the query were broken then it wouldn't work at the other sites, but it does so I don't think it is the caml query.  Just in case I have included it below. <Where><Or><And><Eq><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo" LookupId="TRUE"/><Value Type="int"><UserID /></Value></Eq><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq></And><And><Membership Type="CurrentUserGroups"><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/></Membership><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq>

WSS 3.0 Content & Structure Reports aren't working


I'm having trouble with one specific site and the content and structure reports.  In all my wss 3.0 sites, I go to Site Actions>View Reports and choose a specific CAML query.  In one site, I choose a default report such as "Checked out to Me" and I am taken to just the View: Default View. I'll change the drop down again to a different report again such as "Checked out to Me" and it refreshed the view again back to Default View.

What's going on? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks for your time and help!

Content and Structure Report not showing all items

I have an environment where the Site Owner is not seeing all items pending approval when they access that view from the root node in the Content And Structure section.

We can see pending items in this view if they access some of the lower level nodes in the tree structure, just not from the top node.

I've noticed that the second level nodes are not inheriting permissions from the root node, but I'm not sure if that is relevant. I've also checked the CAML for the Pending Approval view and it has not been altered in any way.

Any ideas?

Move page in Site Content and Structure alters revision history and makes old content available


This sounds bizzare, I tried it on an OOTB publishing site.

I have a page X in site A. Page X has version 1.0 and 2.0 approved and published, no minor versions anywhere. I choose to move page X to site B. Page X now has revision history version 1.0 (published and available) and version 1.1, which is exactly the same as version 2.0 but no longer visible to the outside world.

So the first problem is that moving a page makes a previously published and overwritten version of the page content available again. If I publish the page it goes to version 2.0, but I have to remember to do this. Also because I approve the page, my user id is associated with the publication of the content (which is sorta ok) but the original author of version 2.0 has now presumably been lost to the ether ... or the green swirling icon of death.

But I don't publish page X because I think "oops I meant to move page Y" and move it back to site A, without first publishing version 1.1. Now I have version 0.1 and 0.2. 0.1 matches the original version 1.0, and version 0.2 matches the original version 2.0, however the best bit is that the timestamps are such that version 0.1 is now checked in after version 0.2.

I then publish the page, I now have version 0.1 and 1.0, where 0.1 matches the original version

Multiple Approval Not Working using Site Content and Structure


Hi all

I have two dummy users. I have given one user contribute permissions and the other as approve permissions. I have enabled content approval on my document libraries, pages library etc. I have created a few pages,documents etc  using the dummy user having contribute permissions. Now using Site Content and Structure's pending approval section i am unable to approve these docs using the second dummy user having Approve permissons.

When logged in as dummy user 2 (having approve permissons) I am able to see all the documents requiring my approval in the pending approval section of Site Content and Structure. But when i check all the check boxes and click on approve its not getting approved. The page refreshes but the items still remain in the pending approval section without any change.

Please Help...

How to dynamically secure content of reports



Is there any way of dynamically loading only specific data in a report based on the user who is accessing the report and their access rights which would be stored in different tables?

An example of this is a report of cost of mobile phone bills. Each person's phone bill is allocated to a cost centre, there are likely to be between 2 and 20 bills per cost centre. When a report is run we want to display only those bills that the user is allowed to see and the criteria would be (a) IT allowed to see all (b) the cost centre manager can see their own cost centre and (c) some specific people can see multiple cost centres. The information relating to the 3 different criteria is in 3 different tables.

Could anyone suggest a way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Custom action to actions- menu on "manage content and structure" sitemanager.aspx page


Hi all


I need to add custom action to actions menu of document library when user is in "content and structure" and can multiselect items from doclib. (doc lib is active in left side)

By default the Action menu contains items copy,move,delete|checkout,discard checkout, checkin,publish,unpublish


Other option would be to add multiselect support to doc libraries.


Thanks for the ideas in advance,




Creating a "content type" folder structure


Hey all:


I'd like to enable users to create a folder structure for their project management by the click of a button, but I'm having trouble getting it to work.  For instance, the user would go to a document library and click "New... -> Project Management Folder".  Inside this newly created PM folder, it would already have several subfolders created such as "Requirements", "Business Modeling", "Analysis & Design", etc.


The first way I thought of to accomplish this is through a custom content type, inheriting from the Folder.  However this doesn't enable me to establish a structure.


Does anyone have any ideas?

Approve Multiple Through Manage Content and Structure Not Working


I am trying to approve multiple list items by doing the following:

  1. Manage Content and Structure.
  2. Changing the view of the list to "Pending Approvals".
  3. Selecting all items.
  4. Choosing "Approve" from the "Actions" menu.

Doing this does not result in any approvals; all items remain in the "pending" state.  Some things to note:

  • There are no workflows for this list.
  • I can approve each item one at a time and the status updates to "approved".
  • I am logged in as a site collection administrator.
  • I have tried logging in as the system account to no avail.
  • I have tried choosing "Publish" from the Actions menu to no avail.
  • There are no errors in the event viewer.

Can someone please help with this issue?  I am planning on having lists with hundreds of items and the bulk approve functionality is definitely a requirement.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!


SharePoint Tutorial - Content Types

SharePoint content types provide users with a way to manage and organize content in a more meaningful way. It's a reusable of settings you want to apply to a particular type of document in a library or item in a list.

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.
