Document Review / Circulations Query

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello all, I have recently started with a fresh install of SharePoint 2010 and so far I'm very impressed.  We have had a specific requirement for a document review system.  A user would like to send documents out for review to a group of people.  So far I have discovered the circulations, this allows us to setup a circulation, the limitation is that it does not email the recipients and it does not remind them.  The other option is to create a document library with a workflow to setup tasks for users, we can get this to email and subsequently remind users but if I send the task to a group it only creates one task (the first person who completes the task stop the workflow and we lose the audit trail for all other users).  It can be assigned to single users but for ease of maintenance I would like to send to a group so that end users can add people rather than editing the workflow every time a new user is required.  In an ideal world the circulation list would email the users and subsequently remind them via email to read the document.  Does anybody have any thoughts on this? Thanks for help.

Set read only permissions on a document based on review status

I have a document library that has excel files that users create using a Content Type template.  Then there is a workflow that runs on it and allows the user to change state of the document to Strted, Prepared, Reviewed.  I want that once the status is set to reviewed, a workflow runs and changes the permissions on the document to read only.  The user is part of a group... so not sure how to handle the permission.  Any advice?

Content Query web part - how to open documents on first click instead of first opening the document


Hi all, Hopefully this is a easy settings change question, when I create a content query web part and have it look at documents in a document library (Either document library or document centre) when I click on the name of the document (link to doc) in the content query it opens up a page that list the document properties, I then have to click on the "Name" of the document link to open the document but when i close the document I end up at the library that the document is in and not on the page that I clicked on  the link in content query web part. So in some cases a user is on a site and clisks on a link(in a content query web part) that eventaully opens a document in the document centre and when they close the doucment there end up in the document centre.

Any ideas why this behaviour is suddendly happening, it didn't happen when I first added the content wuery web parts, thanks in advance.


Document Libraries and the query string source parameter



In MOSS 2007 / WSS 3.0 I used to be able to pass a &Source= parameter to the upload page of a document library and it would get carried through to the Document Properties page.  When the user checked-in the document, the user was taken back to the page specified in the Source parameter.

In 2010, the source parameter appears to get cleared and reset between the Upload page and the Edit Properties page - defaulting to the allitems.aspx view.

Has anyone used this technique in SharePoint 2010 and if not can anyone suggest any work arounds for taking a user to a specified location after the document upload process has been completed?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Kind regards

Content Query Web Part - Filter Contents of Document Library



I would like to display selective content of document library using content query web part. My document library has multiple folders. I would like to have the content query web part display the contents of one particular folder. And also another content query should display the contents based on a column in the document library. I don't see these options when customizing the query for the content query web part. If this is not possible by default, what is the potentail alternative solution ?

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.
