Approve/Reject a document using Sharepoint web services


Is there a way to approve / reject a file that has been published on sharepoint 2007 using web services only?

Say there is a document 'A.xls' that was published as a major version by the author. I want the admin to be able to approve/reject it from a site outside the Sharepoint application. I know there is a workflow involved in this, but is there a web service that exposes the functionalities attributed to this workflow?


Discussion board template of SharePoint 2007 not working properly


Use case 1 – Discussion board to suggest change to documents

 User adds a suggestion. The discussion board needs fields like module name, document name, section name and reason for a change etc.


 Problem 1 – When I try to add fields to the discussion board – When a user wants to post a reply to a suggestion, user screen shows the new item form and all fields instead of just a reply or comment field. Need help how can I ensue user only sees reply or comment field?


 Problem 2 – If I make these changes in the discussion board template through SharePoint designer 2007 and later if we plan to upgrade to SP 2010. Do I have to redo the changes I did on old discussion board or will upgrade take care of migration of the changes to new discussion board template available with SP 2010?

Connecting a Discussion board to Outlook

Hi, I'm working on an application which takes a mail from a mailbox and imports it as a discussion board item on a sharepoint site. I have no problem importing the mail to sharepoint. When connecting the discussion board to outlook I cannot see the items inside that discussion board, but if I create a new discussion board item from sharepoint I have no problem seeing that item in my outlook. I'm using the AddDiscussionBoardItem method from this site, to import the email to sharepoint. Thanks in advance. -Michael     

Problem setting up approve/reject settings in Absence Request and Vacation Management Template

Hi I have recently installed and set up the absence request and vacation management template in SharePoint Services 3.0 and all seems to be going reasonably well apart from one hitch. I have edited the setup workflow so that manager is sent an email on request, employee is sent an email on approval/rejection and payroll are sent an email on approval for their records. However, even though the Personal Vacation option in the Absence Type list is set to Yes for Approval Required, the workflow is automatically sending out the email to say their annual leave has been approved as soon as they request it. Has anyone come across this before or know where I may be going wrong? Thanks for any help you can give. Jo

MOSS 2007 Discussion Board reply error

Created a standard webpart Discussion Board and can add discussion items OK but when tried to reply to item got error 'The page cannot be displayed'. After several attempts eventually worked when the item description was only 4 characters or less. looking at the response URL it appears to be excessively long, some elements seem to be repeated in the URL string e.g. https://xx.xxxxxxx.com/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Board/NewForm.aspx?RootFolder=%2ftheworks%2fOandR%2fTDMBE%2fLists%2fDiscussion%20Board%2fhave%20consultants%20got%20enough%20supplies&ContentTypeId=0x0107&DiscussionParentID=2&Source=https%3A%2F%2Fxx%2Exxxxxxx%2Ecom%2Ftheworks%2FOandR%2FTDMBE%2FLists%2FDiscussion%2520Board%2FFlat%2Easpx%3FRootFolder%3D%252ftheworks%252fOandR%252fTDMBE%252fLists%252fDiscussion%2520Board%252fhave%2520consultants%2520got%2520enough%2520supplies%26FolderCTID%3D0x01200200A1C51FB6047510439F93B774F153C4CB%26TopicsView%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fxx%252Exxxxxxx%252Ecom%252Ftheworks%252FOandR%252FTDMBE%252FLists%252FDiscussion%252520Board%252FAllItems%252Easpx   Does this suggest that the URL length is the root of the issue. The users are using IE6 also. If i connect directly onto one of the front end web servers and try to do a reply then it works as expected and response URL is much shorter i.e.   http://servername/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Boar

Customising the native SharePoint Discussion board

I am trying to customise a discussion board by adding a series of columns. when I create a new discussion this works well . I am presented with a form allowing me to assign values to the custom columns however when I create a reply to the discussion , the form presented to me is the same as that presented when I created a new discussion. Is there an "on_reply" event that I can trap to ensure that the reply inherits the data from the original discussion item ? can you suggest anyway I can ensure that the original data values are not reset when a user replies ? regards, Counie

SharePoint 2010 Discussion Board



We are planning to start a discussion board / forum on our SharePoint environment. The default SP 2007 look and feel does not meet our requirements, we want a bit more user friendly look and feel. We will go to SP 2010 not long after release, can someone maybe post a print screen of an example of SP 2010 discussion board? Or extra info about the differences with SP 2007? Can find those on the internet.
