Sharepoint Survey Question

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am making a single question survey to vote on a list a videos in a document library.  Is there a way to make the options links?  I have tried quote a few things including hard coding the link (it just displays it all as text) and trying to lookup from a links list but the URL column is not availabe.  I'm open to suggestions but don't really want to do any complex mods in sharepoint.

question on attachments/document upload in SharePoint

Scenario: I have business need where I need to attach some documents to a document library. My users fill out a form, which is a custom List Form in a list called "Request" but on the same form I want to provide my users a document upload feature which will save the document to a document library called "Request Documents".

In other words, request information such as Title, Department, Description etc get saved to "Request List" (SharePoint List) whereas the documents attached/uploaded (if there are any from the user) while filling the same request form out, get saved in the "Request Documents" (SharePoint Document Library) with the same ID #. If Request ID was 100, then the uploaded document(s) in the Document Library should also be 100.

I tried a few techniques out, and I'm reading some more on Data Source Library of SharePoint but I believe I need some help from the community before I do anything further.

General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

Link Access 2007 to SharePoint 2007 Survey

So here is my problemo. I am trying to organize site requests into a system that will let us easially see what requests have come in and who are the particular owners or users associated with the requests. Currently we use a SharePoint 2007 Survey to collect all the requests. I was hoping to upgrade things by linking the Survey list to an Access 2007 db so we can manage the data better. However, whenever I attempt to link the Access DB to a SharePoint list, none of the survey lists show up. I was wondering if there was a way to make it so whenever someone completes a survey, it updates the Access DB. I have figured out a way to get this to work with InfoPath but I would rather use the surveys that already exist. Thank you, Jeb G.

Odd SharePoint Survey behavior

I created two survey's. Let's call them A and B. Created both from the same template. Have created over 100 other surveys from the same template in the past and have never seen this phenomenon before. Created survey A. Everything looks fine. Had a coworker put in a fake response and it was shown normally. Created survey B. Same result; everything is fine. Then I went back to survey A and I see the responses for B. The A responses are no longer showing. When I go to 'survey settings' for A, I get the page for survey B settings. I can hover over the response links in A and see they are pointing to B. However, if I go to 'all site content' I see both A and B listed. If I hover over A, it show the link going to A (as it should). If I click the link, I am taken to survey A....but it's still showing responses from B! The only way to get to the actual A responses is to use 'manage content and structure' to manually get there. Everything appears checked in and up to date. I have never seem this before and really have no idea what to try....

Downgrading from Sharepoint 2010 Internet Enterprise to Standard (Purely a licensing rights question

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

Replacing a text question in a Survey using JavaScript at runtime (document.body.innerHTML.replace)

Hi, I want to replace some of the text in a SharePoint Survey at runtime.  The idea behind that is to add a "header" or "title" to questions that are related together.  For example, let's say I have 2 related questions, a page separator, and 2 more related questions: (yes/no type of questions): Q1.  Are you between 20 and 40? Q2.  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Q3.  J2EE Q4.  C/C++ The result on the final Survey should look like this: Tell us about you. Are you between 20 and 40?  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Indicate what programming languages you know: J2EE C/C++ Simply, I tried to use the document.body.innerHTML.replace() in order to replace:  - Q1 with: <h2>Tell us about you.</h2>  - Q2 with ''  - Q3 with: <h2>Indicate what programming languages you know:</h2>  - Q4 with: '' Using the technique below, I added the following code in SharePoint Designer in NewForm.aspx: <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderTitleAreaClass" runat="server"> <script id="onetidPageTitleAreaFrameScript"> document.getElementById("onetidPageTitleAreaFrame").className="ms-areaseparator"; document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace(/Q1/g,'

What Survey "Question and Type" would you use with:



In a SP Survey, I need a question like:






Where the user can type in a value for both Vendor and Course fields.
I was thinking to use a "Multiple lines of text" field and change its default value using SP Designer.  Perhaps somebody has a better -or more elegant- way to do it?


SharePoint 2007 Enterprise Search Scope Question



I have configured different search scopes to point to different search contents on my MOSS server and had them displayed on cope dropdown menu.  Everything is working great but with one issue; the selected scope from the default Search page does not stick on the Result page.

For example, I have three scope choices available on my scope dropdown menu: scope1, scope2, and scope3.  For this particular scope Display Group, I have selected "scope1" to be the default.  So when I go to the main Search page, "scope1" is shown as the default choice on the scope dropdown menu.  If I select another scope from the dropdown menu (e.g., scope2) and perform a search, it takes me to the Result page showing the result of the search and also shows what I typed in in the search text box.  The problem is that although I selected "scope2" on the original page's dropdown menu, the result page's dropdown menu shows "scope1" which is the default choice and not what I selected on the original page.  This behavior is confusing to my end users who want to refine their search from the Result page but then they have to re-select "scope2" from the dropdown menu.

My question is, is there a way for me to make the selected scope choice from the original page to stick on the Result page's s

RBS on SharePoint 2010 Question

Hopefully an easy question for you all.  In the technet documentation on setting up RBS for SharePoint 2010, I noticed it states that you can provision a BLOB store only one time.  Does that mean you can only use the RBS that you setup (eg, C:\Blobstore1) for the one Content database/web application associated with it and for each other web application I bring up, I need another blobstore?  Thanks in advance.
