WSS 3.0 sync with Outlook 2007 not updating all clients

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We have external emails being delivered to a Sharepoint Discussion Board and our users connect to the discussion board via the Connect to Outlook option. The users all have contribute rights to the discussion board. In the Outlook send and receive groups I have configured a send and receive group for Sharepoint the sends and receives every one minute. When a user deletes a discussion board post (email) that change does not sync back to sharepoint for the other users to see the changes. I have enable Outlook logging on the client machine and I expect to see a log entry every minute since I have it set to send and receive every minute but I do not it is fairly eractic. My guess is that it is logging everytime the user clicks on the folder in Outlook and that is when it does a send and receive. Does anyone know what is going on?

Sharepoint calendar sync with personal outlook calendar

Hello I want our users to be able to make meetings in sharepoint and see it directly in their personal calendar, also when other users subscribe and unsubcribe it should be seen in their personal calendar. I know its possible to "Link/Connect with outlook" but this makes a new "Other Calendar" which u can put side to side with your own calender. I would like to have it directly imported into my personal outlook calendar.  Is there any known information , links about this?

SharePoint 2007 Metadata In Outlook 2007

I have a few users that are looking for a better way to send documents to recipients outside the organization from SharePoint 2007.  The company's policy is to try to use Metadata rather than folders in the document libraries.  Unfortunately these custom columns are not displayed in Outlook 2007 and there are hundreds of files in each of the libraries.  This makes it a little challenging to locate the files to be attached to an email.  I see that there is an add-in from Colligo that may help but I'm wondering if there is another way without the purchase of add-ins or other products.  Any ideas?

This task could not be updated at this time on clicking Edit Task in Outlook 2007



I wonder if someone can help me please.  We have a Workflow that creates a task and sends an e-mail notification to the approver. The Approver receives an e-mail and the Edit task form pops up with the correct information.

When the approver clicks Edit Task we get "This task could not be updated at time time" error when approver clicks submit button.

Email InfoPath form located on secure SharePoint 2007 using Outlook


I have a 2007 InfoPath form that is stored on a secure 2007 SharePoint team site that needs to be emailed to outside users for feedback on a certain subject. The form is opened by a team member (with site access), sent to the reviewer to provide feedback (via Outlook 2007), and then submitted back to the team member for review and submission to the SharePoint site.

The issue I've encountered is that the outside user who receives the form in Outlook as the body of the email cannot enter information in any fields in order to provide feedback. The option to "include the form template with the email" is blocked in my InfoPath form options (I believe because the form location is a secured site). I have tried adding the users to permissions in just the library where the form is published to, but they still cannot enter any information.

Can someone provide me with a solution for this problem?

SSRS Reports Not updating in Sharepoint 2007


Hello All,

I created some reports in SSRS 2008, The reports data source is a live transactional data source. The reports are to auto refresh every minute displaying any new info that  was put on to the system in the last minute. The auto refresh property on each report is set to 60 sec. to trigger the refreshing of the reports.

The problem: when i run the reports in the report manager the every thing works fine, the report runs, refreshes, and the figures are updated.

I am now displaying these reports in Sharepoint 2007 via the "report viewer" facilitated by the RSWebPart that i installed on the Sharepoint instance. 

The reports are displayed fine in the viewer, but my problem is that it does not auto refresh with the updated info.


I figure it is a caching issue but how to get around? HELP!

Sharepoint Outlook Public Contacts Firstname Lastname Not Updating Correctly


Users using Outlook 2007 Sharepoint public contacts have been having problems where firstname lastname have amalgamated into lastname.

First Name John
Last Name: Doe

Appears as

First Name:
Last Name: John Doe

I had the user change the first name/last name within Outlook Sharepoint public contacts but this does not reflect the change in other users Outlook contacts.

e.g. User 1 (Outlook 2007) modifies existing contact to

First Name: John
Lastname: Doe

User 2 see's

update SharePoint calendar while updating Outlook Calendar


Is it possible to synchronize calendars between Outlook and SharePoint such that a user in Outlook can elect, on any given calendar entry, to have that entry post to a SharePoint calendar AT THE SAME TIME?  Our division has a presence on our SharePoint intranet site.  On the site is a calendar that shows vacation time of all division employees.  What we hope to be able to do is that when an employee enters there vacation on their own Outlook calendar, that it updates the Employee Vacation Calendar on the SharePoint site too. 

I am aware of the ability to synchronize calendars, and have the SP calendar show up in Other Calendars in Outlook, and then drag a copy from the Outlook calendar to the SharePoint calender as shown here: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/Blogs/GetThePoint/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=8d9e2a99-f288-47c2-916b-2f32864f7b82&ID=73&Web=5e4647a0-e7d0-4626-b71c-b1ff06402465, but we are hoping to even eliminate that copying step.

Anyone know of a way to do a more advanced Outlook contact sync with SharePoint?


Wanted to see if anyone had tried to do a more advanced Outlook contact sync with SharePoint.

We were hoping to find a way to have outlook sync contacts with a sharepoint contact list by categories in personal contact folders.  I.e. if a user has a contact in their personal exchange contacts that is marked with a category "Partner", is there any way to have all contacts categorized as "Partner" automatically share in the public SharePoint shared contacts for Partners.  Additionally, would be nice to also sync those users to the personal contacts.

Otherwise, we just treat the shared contacts as another contact folder for drag/drop sync.

Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook 2007 Problems!


I am using SP 2010 and have outlook 2007. I am using the calendar synch option and am easily able to synch the calendar from SP to Outlook. I was easily able to drag and drop all appointments at once from my outlook calendar to the SP calendar and they showed up on the SP site. Now I am unable to make any further changes on the SP calendar using Outlook that will show on the SP site. It will say it is "Send/Receive Status % complete" at the bottom of the Outlook screen, but when I look at the SP site, no changes are reflected. It will allow the opposite, if I make changes to the calendars on the SP site and then the changes will show on my Outlook SP calendars.

I have full permission in SP. Really confused why it let me synch at first FROM Outlook to the SP site, but no longer will.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Sharepoint Services 3.0 - hooking into outlook 2007 / 2010?


I'm looking at creating a Meeting Workplace using sharepoint services 3.0.

I'm reading a lot about calendars and how you can configure them to receive emails & update the calendar & such.

What I want to know is if it can be hooked into Outlook 2007 / 2010 so that it will either directly update my (and other members) calendars, or if it can be configured to broadcast the meeting request to the other members.
