Is it possible to use multiple date fields to have an event show more than once on a Sharepoint 2007

Hello, Is it possible to use multiple sets of start and end times to have events display multiple times in a sharepoint calendar? To clarify: - I have the standard fields of "Start Time" and "End Time" in my calendar list. - Events show on the calendar just fine. - Would like to create additional fields called "Start Time 2" and "End Time 2" within the same record and have the event show multiple times on the calendar. - The recurrence functionality of sharepoint will not meet my needs because the pattern I need to use is not in one of the allowed choices. Thanks in advance, John

Workflow SPD: Set Today Date+Time to Column-field




I have a little question about settings specific today (Date + Time) value to a field/column within a workflow that is designed by Sharepoint Designer 2007.

how to send emails to multiple persons at the same time from sharepoint workflow using visual studio


Hi Every one !!

   I am trying to send copy of a document for multiple directors at my client for their approval.

   The director can approve the document at the same time.

   Hence, I would like to know how to create a task to send emails for multiple people at the same time from a sharepoint workflow using visual studio 2008.

   I see there is a parallel activity. But it gives me only 2 paths ( means would be able to send only for 2 users )

   If creating a separate task to send emails for each user is an inefficient way, please let me know if there is another good way of sending emails to multiple users.


Thank you

Sharepoint attachments with time/date stamp


I am not a sharepoint guru, so please feel free to talk to me like I'm a beginner.

We have a web part that allows attachments and the boss wants to time/date stamp the attachments so he knows which one is the most recent. I know this happens with ease in a regular doc library, but not sure how to implement in a simple web part.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

How to create a Workflow in SharePoint Designer?


Dear TechNet experts,

I would like to ask for support regarding on how to create a workflow in SharePoint Designer 2007.
Here's the situation:
I have created a form, HR Form, then there's a DEPARTMENT in whereas users can select from the list of department where they are working with.
And from the HR TeamSite, I have created a list of Managers, Departments, & Staffs. Departments is connected with Department list in SharePoint.

Now, here's my question, using SharePoint Designer, how can I make a Workflow that if a user selects their Department, that form will be sent to the Manager of that department. From the list of managers, it has a column of their email address.
After the Manager approve the request, it will be forwarded to 1 person only, the HR Manager. So eventhough user selects any department & if the manager of that dept. approves, it will be forwarded to the HR Department for the last approval.
And if rejected by Dept. Manager, an email will be sent to the user who fills up the form, saying that the request was rejected. Same with HR Manager.

I don't know what should I select from the SharePoint Designer Workflow.
Please advise...

SharePoint Desinger is throwing error when trying to create a workflow in a site



Lately may be from only couple of days we are experiencing this issue. When we are trying to create a workflow on any SharePoint Site, or when I try to open an previously created workflow in SP designer, it is throwing me this error:

'The Server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet Service Provider or Web Server Administrator to make sure that the server has FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Services installed'.

I was able to open or create workflows without any issue before and also there were no major changes done on that server lately.Please help me in fixing this.
