Changing an Outlook Item from SharePoint WebPart

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I have a custom SharePoint 2007 WebPart.

I need to be able to change an item in the user's Outlook 2007 based upon their actions within the WebPart.

I cannot figure out how to programmatically capture the user's Outlook from SharePoint to make the needed changes. I can set up a new instance of Outlook, but it sets it up on the server, not connected to the user's instance of Outlook. Unfortunately, OOB Web Parts will not work in this instance.

Can anyone point me towards a resource that can give me this information, please?

Thanks for your help!!

How to change a SharePoint list item Approval Status from Silverlight webpart

  

Hello, 

I'm facing the following problem:

I have an embedeed silverlight xap application inside a custom visual webpart, that access SharePoint data through Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight classes, and I have to modify some fields from an item from a list that has "Require content approval" enabled. I update the item successfully, but its approval status is set to "Pending" afterwards. 

How can I re-approve the content programatically?

Some additional information:

  • SPList item has a moderation information field, but in Silverlight there is only "ListItem" which does not contain such field.
  • When I try to do "item["_moderationinformation"] = something", I receive a PropertyOrFieldNotInitializedException.
  • I can check for Item.ParentList.EnableModeration, but there is neither a field nor a method related to moderation on the item itself.
A possible solution would be to create and call a web service that approves the items, but I'd rather prefer to avoid hosting and calling a ws to cover this functionality.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Ezequiel

 


Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

  
When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue

  

Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:


Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter

  

We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.

 

For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).

 

In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:

 

08/27/2007 13:49:43.24  w3wp.exe (0x0CA0)                        0x1438 Windows SharePoint Services    Workflow Infrastructure        72fs Unexpected RunWorkflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: <Error><CompilerError Line="1" Column="1" Text="The root activity type is invalid.&q

    Update SharePoint List item using UpdateListItem web service with javascript

      
    I'm using the Custom_AddListMenuItems function in a CEWP to add a menu item to each list item to Archive that item. This is achieved by updating a choice field in the item to 'Archived'. I'm trying to do this using the web service UpdateListItem web service to update the item using Javascript, but I can not find the correct code that updates the list item. I'm using this code:     var ctx=currentCtx;     var ciid=currentItemID;     var xmlHttp=null;     if (confirm("Are you sure you want to Archive this item?"))     {         var soapRequest = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>'+             '<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">'+             '    <soap:Body>'+             '        <UpdateListItems xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">'+         

    Custom SharePoint Timer Job doesn't run after changing code and restart timer services.

      
    Hi We are facing an issue that our custom SharePonit Timer Job doesn't run after a changing the code. First, we developed and deployed a timer job. It worked fine for a few days, then we detected a memory leak and killed the OWSTIMER.EXE. (Maybe we should uninstall the timer job and restart the timer services nicely). We fixed the problem, redeployed the fix as a feature (assemblies are re-GACed ...) to our small SharePoint farm (one web server, one services server), restarted the SharePonit Timer Services. Now we can see the time job in Timer Job Definition in Central Admin but the job never runs (Since it doesn't run, the timer job status page doesn't have any info about it). We tried the same process in a dev environment with SharePoint signle box installation. The timer job just works fine. I did some search on Internet and followed some instruction to clear the cache from "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\1d50d73c-9bf1-4444-85a9-910ed050d1bf" by 1. Remove all the xml2. Clear the cache.ini with "1".3. restart the timer services. It still doesn't fix the problem.Please advise what else I can do. I even rename the timer job and redeploy it. It doesn't help. I checked the even log and SharePoing log and couldn't see anything wrong. Our OS is W2K8.         public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)        { 

    PowerShell script to add/edit ContentEditor webpart on SharePoint 2010

      
    Hi all, I'm new to PowerShell scripting with SharePoint. Following are the requirements that were given to me. Can any one direct me in the right direction interms of writing the script and how to save and execute the script? I am aware of Cmdlets. 1. Cycle through all sites in site collection 2. For each site, retrieve all document libraries 3. Look for specific CMV document library name (ie value communication, key business drivers, etc)          o add content editor web part if doesn't exist          o add/update appropriate description based on the document library name Thanks in advance...
