Announcements

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I would like to link all my site collection announcements to appear on a different site within the sharepoint site.  I am assuming I can modify the announcement list to allow the other sites check a box to appear on main page.  However what is the best way to link the announcements to appear?  Is this an RSS feed or do I create a new list with a view to appear on the main page?

Announcements with Image in Body, displayed via CQWP

  

I feel like I've set this up to be as difficult as possible for my non-programmer users ;) There's GOT to be a better way. Any guidance much appreciated.

I have an Announcements-type list on a NEWS subsite, with fields for Title, Body, and Summary (body with image plus first few sentences of Body). I have a separate Picture Library to store the images they'll use in the Body and Summary.

The Title and Summary are displayed on the Site Collection HOME using a CQWP.

My instructions for users are as follows

1. place image in http://site/subsite/imagelibrary/Forms/AllItems.aspx
2. right click on image and select Copy
3. go to http://site/subsite/announcementspage.aspx
4. Click New > New Item.
5. In "Body", click CTRL+V.
6. Add Title, Body, and Summary text.
7. In HTML, add align="left" insite <img> tag.

Adding to http://site/subsite/announcementspage.aspx automatically gets picked up by the CQWP on the home page.

Like I said, it's pretty ugly, esp considering that my users don't know HTML. Recommendations warmly appreciated.


Unstable Announcements

  
We use announcements on task events almost. There are hand-made tasks and oobwf-based ones. I was testing it today and found out that only 50 % of announcements survived on its way to addressee` inboxes. OOB WF generate announcement only for the first chain link, while i didnt find a pattern in hand-made task announcements, they are absolutely spontaneous. Admin checked exchange - everything is fine, no dead-ends. So they stuck somewhere in the farm. Is there some way to debug this or some methods to break the clog ?

How do I customize Announcements further?

  
In the webpart, on the browser page, I just want to show the clickable Title and the date modified (not the time stamp) and nothing else ... no boxes, no attachments, no authors, no descriptions, etc.  

Announcements go missing

  
Hi all, new here so go easy! LOL. We have recently introduced Sharepoint 2010 as our school intranet, its all good with the exception of one problem we seem to be having.  We are using the Announcements web part, we have renamed it 'Staff Notices' and use it simply for that reason, however, we have found that when staff submit new announcement, and do not apply an expiry date, the announcement disappears the very next day or sometimes within a couple of hours.  We cannot find any particular pattern as to when they disappear.  Please could anybody help out on this.  I`m not sure if you would require any further information as to our setup but please ask if you need anything more.  Many thanks guys!

Posting blog entries or announcements to multiple sites

  

I am in the process of mapping out our new sharepoint farm. In order to structure this properly I would like to be able to post an entry either as a blog or an annoucment to more than one site at the same time. An example would be a company announcement on an internal staff site as well as a team site with our consultants. Is this at all possible in any way? Or would these need to be posted in each place individually.

thanks!

Hide (More Links...) and (More Announcements...) and other similar stuff from list views?

  

Is it possible to hide the (More Links...) and (More Announcements...) from list views?

I've got a master list from which I filter three different views to the same page. Some of them have very few links and three times (More Links...) leading to the same master link list is slightly disturbing.


How to show more 'lines' of announcements?

  

Hi,

on my Sharepoint Site i am using an Announcement-List. On the Homepage of my Site i placed this List and i am showing the latest Announcement.

The Problem is, that only the first 3-4 Lines of the Announcement are shown. But i want to show the complete Announcement, or some some lines.

Is this possible? And if yes, how could i solve this.


Best regards,
Yavuz B.

SharePoint Announcements

  


I was working with several different MOSS 2007 servers in different infrastructures, raised up by different administrators.

Everywhere there were problems with task list`s announcements. Sometime it works well for weeks but then it starts to miss some tasks, and then again everything is well. There is no pattern. At least i couldnt find one.

So the major problem here is diagnostics. We tried to fix it by changing secondary factors (like email server changing, making new task lists etc), but with no positive effect.

I thirst for any advice to patch this flaw up.

 


Sharepoint Announcements 250 Character Limit

  

The Sharepoint Announcement web part only shows 250 characters (followed by "...") of the announcement on my site hompage. Where can this be changed?
