Adding content to 3 sharepoint lists in a single form/workflow

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi Folks,

I know there has to be a better way of doing this.

I am setting up a staff training intranet site. the main objectives is to keep a history of what training has been undertaken by company employees.

the solution I have at the moment is

1) create a SharePoint list item on a list called training provider ( for the provider of the training course )

2) create a SharePoint list item on a list called training ( one of the columns is a lookup on the training provider list )

finally

3) create a list item on a list called training schedule which links the employee and the training course.

Going forward I would like the employees themselves to be able to enter the details of the training courses themselves.

I'm concerned that the above process is unwieldly/cumbersome.

Is infopath the way to go ? would a solution involving workflow be better ?

regards,

Counie

Updating Task Lists and Form Libraries From Workflow Form

  

There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the Assigned To for the task.

What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted InfoPath form propagate to the task list.

I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’

adding a SharePoint content source using powershell

  
Hi I'm trying to create a content source using powershell and (I'm not a programmer) I've got this far -   [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server.Search, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Sharepoint, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://breakfast/ssp/admin") $searchContext = [Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchContext]::GetContext($site)  $content = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.Content($searchContext) $Content.ContentSources; --> and now I'm stuck! I think I can use the Create method with type and name parameters but I can't work out how to translate this into powershell This is the code I'm looking at: ContentSource contentSource_com = content.ContentSources.Create(typeof(WebContentSource), "www.someurl.com"); WebContentSource webContentSource_com = (WebContentSource)contentSource_com; webContentSource_com.StartAddresses.Add(new Uri("http://www.someurl.com/index.html)); webContentSource_com.Update(); and $contentsource = $content.ContentSources.

How to override the style values in a sharepoint workflow task form

  

I've created a aspx task form, and it's working as planned.  However, the window that is popping up when the task form fires is too small, and I would like to set the initial height/width to my own values.  How do I override the standard sharepoint css/style values so that I can control the size of the task window?

thanks

Problems when deploying sequential workflow with association Infopath form of sharepoint 2010 using

Unable to attach a custom SharePoint Workflow to a Content Type

  

I am working with SharePoint Server 2010 Beta 2, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate RC and SharePoint Designer 2010 Beta.

I built a custom Content Type based on the Item type with a few custom site columns. I also have built a custom Sequential Workflow using Visual Studio 2010. This is a relatively simple workflow that creates a task, waits for the task to complete, sets the workflow to complete. I am able to deploy this workflow to the site collection through VS 2010.

The problem I have is that when I try to associate my custom Content Type with my custom workflow, that workflow is not listed in the workflow templates to select. There are only the OOTB SharePoint workflows to choose. However, if I create a list and associate a workflow to that list, my custom workflow is listed in the workflow template list.

This makes sense since at the start of building a custom workflow in VS2010, one of the first questions is whether the workflow is a Site or a List workflow and I selected List.

I did a little research and found some who wrote that Reusable Workflows may be attached to Content Types.  In VS2010, there is no option to build a Reusable Workflow.  That is only possible in SharePoint Designer.  However, it is possible to import a SPD workflow into VS, so I tried that.  Imported the WSP into VS201

Adding Multiple hyperlinks to form connected to SharePoint 2010 list

  

I have a SharePoint 2010 list and am using an InfoPath 2010 form to create items. I am trying to allow users to reference other list items by inserting a hyperlink to other items in the same list. I have created a column in the list containing each items URL. I then created a drop down list in the InfoPath form that queries this column, so that it contains all the items URL’s. I also created a button and a hyperlink field in the InfoPath form. I would like the user to be able to choose an item from the drop down list, click the button and have the hyperlink inserted into the form. Then be able to choose another item from the drop down list, click the button and have another hyperlink inserted. I added a rule on the button that when clicked, sets the value of the hyperlink field to the value of the drop down item picked. This works, however, only allows for one hyperlink to be inserted.

I have also tried to use the multiple selection list box, by querying the URL column as the choices. This allows for multiple selections, however it shows up as text a

Custom Task form of a SharePoint Designer workflow is not displaying correctly

  

We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request. We are encountering following issues with this form:

  1. Form is not a workflow form, it is a task item of the task list that the “Collect Data from a User” action of the workflow creates.
  2. Form opens as an item of the workflow task list in View mode (DispForm.ASPX) instead of Edit mode (EditForm. ASPX)
  3. When user clicks on “Edit Item” button, it displays all the fields of the task as editable – we want only the Approve/Reject option buttons and the comments TextBox (that we created during the workflow design) to be displayed as editable

Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?
Thanks……….


error in sharepoint 2010 designer while saving:"Content in the embedded form may be changed by the t

  
Hi, 
I am doing development  in sharepoint 2010 and facing this very weird problem.
If I create a site page with the sharepoint look and feel for that site and try to save the site page,i am getting this error:**"Content in the embedded form may be changed by the the server to remove unsafe content.Do you want to reload your page to see the results of the save? "** and when i say reload,the server removes some parts of my page, e.g onclick event of html,asp buttons.

This error just comes for any sharepoint site page,e.g i took a copy of 'How To Read Library' page just edited the text part of taht page,and when i try to save this error again comes up.

However,if i create a simple aspx page with only htmltags like head body,then thr is no problem ,everything works great. But sharepoint look and feel pages are giving troubles while saving.

has anybody seen this earlier,what could be the reason for this?

Thanks
