Cancel multiple WFs at once & global list find & replace

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We have a number of products in our company, and a need for an email alert for various reasons for each product. Thus, I have a SP list where each list item has a drop-dead date, plus the manager's name and manager's email address as well as a note as to what needs to be done. When a new item is created, or a list item is changed, a workflow is initiated. Remember, each single product associated with a manager can have dozens of these email alert list items with differing drop-dead dates. The workflow is designed to send alerts out at stated intervals before the drop-dead date. The problem is that the manager in charge of a given product can and does change. What I have to do now is to open each of the items that pertain to that manager, stop the existing workflow, change the manager's name and email address in the item, then save it (thus starting a new workflow). This can get tedious when a single product can have several dozen list items corresponding to several dozen drop-dead dates. I would like to be able to filter the list, kill all the workflows that are connected to each item in the filtered list, change the manager name and email using the Datasheet facility, then save. At that point, X new workflows would start where X is the number of list items in the filtered list. 1. Is that possible (I doubt it) in our native SP 2007? 2. Does anyone

Patch for VS 2010 Find and Replace Dialog Growing

One of the top reported Microsoft Connect issues with VS 2010 has been an issue with the Find and Replace dialog - which grows 16px each time you use it (which is pretty annoying). The Visual Studio team recently released a patch that fixes this issue. You can download and apply it here. Hope this helps, Scott P.S. A few people reported issues installing the patch if they had an older version of the Silverlight 4 tools installed.  If you see an error message that says you need an update to Visual Studio to support Silverlight 4, you can fix it by installing the latest Silverlight 4 tools release.

Custom List Row association to multiple documents - Design choices?

I want to associate custom list entries to muliple documents. Thinking about options.   1 row will have many docs, but one doc will only have one row. Possible? Trying to keep it simple with minimal development. I was thinking I could have a unique column or the id column in the list act like a key (somehow).. and  add a required column to the document list requiring it to tie back to the list entry.  Then a view could drive listing all the docs for a particular row from a link in the list built in a custom dataview. All the docs could be in the same library. Is the the best approach? Ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

Data Binding a DataGrid to a list fetch the same data multiple times

Hi, I'm using DataGrid to show data through data binding. My data are provided in a list. The setup I have is the following: DataGrid "binded" to the default view of my list that implement IList<T> and IList interfaces (MyList<T> : IList<T>, IList, INotifyCollectionChanged)             CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView(_myList);             // Set the data context             DataContext = view; T: is here my 'business object' that hold the data, called 'MyRow'. Then the columns of the DataGrid are bound to public properties of 'MyRow' object. MyRow class has a public property of type 'object' (public object data[int index]) and first column of datagrid is bound to myRow.data[0], second column is bound to myRow.data[1] and so on.   When the datagrid is displayed, databinding kick in and my data are showed in the control. The issue I'm having is that data fetching is very repetitive even for the same rows. For example for a datagrid with 20 visible rows, the first row is fetched multiple times even if the datagrid is not resized or moved. I put break point inside my list (MyList<T> into This[T] property (public T this[int index]) and i got multiple hits into the property for the same index. Fetc

MOSS 2007: list column that lookup to multiple documents stored in doc library

Hi All, I'm trying to understand how to customise MOSS to achieve the following: I need to lookup from a list to multiple documents stored in a documetn library. Example: - List item 1 --------> Lookup to Doc 2                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5 - List item 2 --------> Lookup to Doc 3                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5                   --------> Lookup to Doc 8 - List item 3 --------> Lookup to Doc 1 How can I achieve this? is it possible that in the lookup I have a "search" option? Thanks all Vit

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Find Announcement List Template

Hi, I created a list template based off the announcement list. I added some columns to it and saved it as a template. Is there a way (programmatically) to check to see if a list was based on my specific template? I see my list still uses the announcement featureID and ID but I only want to find lists created with my specific template. Thanks for any help.

How to filter a List View by multiple values for one filter field?

Hi, I need to create a dynamically created link to a List View with a filter on one field, but with multiple values. Example: http://<server>/Lists/<list>/Allitems.aspx?FilterField1=Name&FilterValue1=John/Jack/Jonas which should give me all items where Name equals John, Jack or Jonas. Is this even possible?

Multiple selection in connected list view webpart

Hi all, I have a webpart page with 2 listview webparts connected via  ("Send Row of Data"/"Get filter values from"). This connection permits me to select one row on the first listview (parent) and the second (child) gets filtered by the defined filter column. My question is how can I choose multiple rows on the parent so I can filter the rows of the child with multiple filter values? It seems on can only select one row via the "Select" column... Is there a workaround... Many thanks,  

Global Address List (GAL), enumerating the GAL and Dist. Groups, obtain email address

I have an application in which I need to populate a drop-down with names and email addresses from the Global Address List (GAL). If that is too much data (which it probably will be), I would then need to obtain a collection of same data (name/email address) from a Distribution List to populate the drop-down.   I have never done this sort of thing before, so I apologize for the vagueness, but can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks in advance.
