Sharepoint slide library adding functionality.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
The slide library in Sharepoint allows you to upload Powerpoint slides to it, then to copy a slide to a new presentation and edit it, or check it out so you can edit it and check back in the changes. Unfortunately the ability to check out multiple slides at once to edit is not possible, only the ability to copy them to a new presentation, so you lose all data stored with them.  I am trying to find a way to be able to check out multiple slides at once, then be able to check them in when you have made changes.   My questions are basically:  Can I add a button to the Sharepoint slide library interface? How can I interact with the client machine in terms of opening Powerpoint and getting them to be able to check out the slides? I have the Sharepoint VSTO tools installed and this must be for Sharepoint 2007. Thanks

Internet Exporer Crashes when viewing a SharePoint 2010 Slide library

I have 3 environments  (Test, Development & Production) in which this issue happens on all. Whether i create a new blank or use and existing Slide library; upload more than one Powerpoint slide in the library and i put my mouse cursor on any place other than the ribbon interface, Internet explorer jams and stops working. IE restarts itself and brings you back to the library but then does the same thing if you put your cursor anywhere in the sharepoint view. We had tested using IE without addons and it worked correctly. We then ran internete explorer and disabled all addons one by one until all were disabled and the issue was still occurring. We had changed a number of settings and found that disabling "active scripting" in the IE settings also made the issue dissapear. The issue is that we want active scripting and all add ons to work aswell.  We also updated Silverlight  from 4 with a build of 3.0.4 from the Microsoft Website.   (Internet Explroer 8 is the version running on Windows 7 Enterprise edition) The issue IE creates in the application log:  Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keyword: Classic Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 8.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc69e Faulting module name: mshtml.dll, version: 8.0.7600.16490, time stamp: 0x4b2c9557

Slide Library missing in SharePoint Foundation 2010

I am unable to create a slide library in SharePoint Foundation 2010. I read on the internet somewhere that Slide Library is available only on MOSS 2007. Is this true?

SharePoint Slide Library


I have created a SharePoint slide library and I have full rights to the site.  I have a Power Point presentation I am trying to upload.  However, when I try and upload the presentation, it states "Site is not excessible.  Either this location does not exist or you might not have permissions to use this network resource."  I am using Microsoft Office Professional Plus with service pack 2. 

Is their anything else I can do to allow me to upload the presentation?  Note: Their are slide libraries with slides posted on our SharePoint site (SharePoint 2007).  Stands to reason the issue doesn't lie with the server by with something I may or may not be doing.

Can I open the "new" menu in a SharePoint Document Library using Dragon NaturallySpeaking?


When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.

If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.

What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?

Error adding a document library to a site

Adding a custom ASP page to a sharepoint 3.0 site


I have a custom ASP page that I need to add to my sharepoint 3.0 web site.  I created a virtual directory under my website and placed the ASP file.  When I link to the ASP file, I get a 404 page not found.  To make sure I had the correct URL path, I created a test html file and placed in the same virtual directory and linked to it just fine.  I think it has something to do with managed paths and sharepoint trying to control this new ASP content.  I cannot figure out how to exclude this content from managed paths.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue so I can run this custom ASP file under sharepoint 3.0?

Infopath Brower enabled form not visible in the sharepoint library after being submitted

Hi, I have created a infopath browser enabled form to submit to a sharepoint form library, however the submitted forms are not visible in the sharepoint link structure.   I'm able to see them in the SPD structure.  I'm using infopath 2007 and MOSS. I actually created a SPD workflow which retrieves specific values from the submitted form and saves it to another sharepoint list. This works fine even if the forms are not visible. Appreciate any help. Thanks

I have set up a template form setup that users can fill out and then by pressing the submit button sends an email.My current issue is, when I publish the form to sharepoint, I don't see it, I have sharepoint set to view all documents and I still don't see it.  I can get to the form by clicking the "view my form in browser" pop up after I'm done publishing it.  I would like the users to just be able to click on a link in the library, but I can't find where it was published.Any insight on this would be great thanks.

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error. Attempting to deploy from BIDS results in the same permissions error. Sharepoint Server 2010, Report Server 2008 R2. RS and SP databases hosted on remote server (SQL Server 2008 R2). All connections (SharePoint services, RS services, users) except SQLAgent authenticating to remote SQL Server with Kerberos (all SPNs look correct). Single site, site collection "/". Document directory called "Reports". Windows Integrated Security (Negotiate). How would I troubleshoot/solve problem?
