How do you filter a list in a Meeting workspace based on the meeting date?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a customer who is using a meeting workspace, and has a list on said workspace (we'll call it "Meeting Instance List"). The workspace houses this list, and of course after each meeting, the workspace, in essence, resets itself in preparation for the next meeting - so it looks like it removes the items from the list, when in actuality, they are there, just on the previous meeting instances. Some of his stakeholders are finding this limiting because they perceive it as losing historical information (you know how some folks can be, if they don't see it, they think it's gone). His solution is to replace the non-series list, with a series list, and incorporate legacy records from another older list. Only problem is, now there's not a way to filter the series list so that it shows items from a parcticular meeting date. For instance - the [Today] variable will only return a current system date value. Surely there ought to be a similar variable that would all you to filter the list based on meeting date, right?

Meeting workspace: How to show data from all meetings based on custom view



I've got a meeting workspace in a MOOS2007 site. The workspace contains a Task list. It's not enabled with "Series Items".

I'd like to add an additional page to the meeting workspace and show incomplete tasks from all meetings. I can create a separate view for this tasks list that will show incomplete tasks. However, it only shows data for the meeting date that is selected. Is there anyway I can get this view to show filtered data from "All Meetings"?

Please advise. Thanks,

Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

Meeting Workspace unusable after SharePoint upgrade to 2010

Hello, We recently took a content database from MOSS 2007 and attached it to a SharePoint 2010 farm that uses a different DNS name. Now, there's a user who had a recurring meeting configured in Outlook 2010 with a meeting workspace  who can no longer use the workspace now that it only exists on SharePoint 2010. She tried removing the link to the old workspace from her recurring meeting and adding a new location using the new URL, but she gets a message saying a workspace already exists at the site. Obviously it does, but the meeting in Outlook is the same meeting. Is there any way to re-connect the Outlook meeting with the meeting workspace that exists on the new SharePoint 2010 server? Thanks.

Outlook Meeting changes not being made in linked Sharepoint Meeting Workspace. Why?

Changes made (meeting time and location) in outlook meeting not being reflected in the linked sharepoint meeting workspace.  Sending changes results in emails to attendees being returned as undeliverable and no changes on the sharepoint side. Looking for ideas as to what may be causing the problem.

Dynamic list item title based on date created & regional settings?

I have a list of things that doesn't *need* a title.  However, because sharepoint uses Title for links, RSS etc  I tried generating a title in an event handler.   This would work great if I wasn't basing it on a date field: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(properties.AfterProperties["TestDate"]); properties.AfterProperties["Title"] = dt.ToShortDateString(); base.ItemAdding(properties); } In testing, this sets the title to "8/9/2010" when I selected 8/10/2010 in the date picker.  I figure this is because of the regional settings of my test user.  I can probably correct the title value for 'test user' but that won't fix 'test user in mongolia' who would still see two different values. So What I would like is to have the Title always display the value MyDate in the uesr's locale.  So the field needs to be dynamic not only at edit/update time, but at display time. Does anybody know if this can be accomplished, and more specifically how?

SharePoint 2007 Calendar - add an event to a recurring meeting workspace

Hello all,

I was wondering if someone can answer this problem I am having. 

Simple Question: Are you able to add an additional event into a recurring event which is linked to a meeting workspace?

Long version:

I create an event in a calendar with the recurrence of every monday for the month. (4 dates lets say)  We have a special meeting to add to the meeting workspace, so I add an additional event in the calendar and try to add this date (15th lets say) to that previous meeting workspace series.

My problem is that the ability to add the new date (15th) to the series doesn't show me any options to add to that previous meeting workspace, I can only create a new meeting workspace.

My colleague who has used SharePoint 2003 at another workplace is 100% sure she could do this, however I am at a loss where SharePoint 2007 allows this functionality.

In a new calendar, I tested this theory by creating 3 events with recurring dates and creating an associated meeting workspace with each of them.  Not once did I get the option to add the event to another meeting workspace.  I added an event with no recurrence with an associated meeting workspace, the very next event could add to that meeting workspace which is what I want except to a recurring meeting workspace.

From my analysis, any event that has a recurring series

Top navigation bar Sharepoint Foundation 2010 (Meeting Workspace)


Hello everybody,

when additional sites have been created in Sharepoint Services v2 (2003) on a Meeting Workspace site, there was a top navigation with which the user(s) could navigate trough these sites.

Is there any way to get such a navigation in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 on a Meeting Workspace site?

Futhermore I'd like to know how a user defined list is displayed directly on the page where it has been inserted.

Would be nice if someone could help me. Thanks in advance.

With kind regards,

How can I filter a Sharepoint 2007 libarry list based on current user login?


Hi all.

I would like to know how I can filter a SharePoint library list based on current user login.

Suppose I have created the followings:

1) A SharePoint form library containing bunch of uploaded InfoPath form data.

2) The InfoPath form template contains a promoted text field called "TargetUser" to store user domain login (ex: DOMAIN\JOE) and every InfoPath form file in the library has a valid domain name stored in the "TargetUser" field.

I have created a custom view for the form library and would like to filter this view so only items whose "TargetUser" field matches current user's login ID are displayed.

I went to Edit View page to customize the view and tried to use the [Me] function but I got a "Filter value is not a valid text string" message instead when clicking OK. Apparently [Me] returns a Person/Group data type and the filter cannot compare its value to that of "TargetUser".

I tried using text functions (ex: TEXT([Me],"") hoping to extract default string value from [Me]. The filter accepts the parameter without any error but the resulting fitlered list does not display any items at all.

I have googled this subject for hours but I have not found any solution.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can help me t
