Fetching Task List for the logged in User

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi All,

The requirement is as follows..

We have some workflows which are been created already. The tasks are been assigned to users for their approval. Now, when the approver logs in it should display the Tasks List which are belonging to that particular user only. OR if the normal user logs inn, it should display Tasks belonging to that User only. A web part should display this. Pls. note that I have to show the Tasks from both "Workflow Task" & "Task".

How do I achieve the same?

Thnx,

Alex

Fetching the Currently Logged in user Email

  

Hey Frnds,

If  debug my sol am getting the Exact mail id of that Particular user for ex:john@in.domain.com.

If i host My Application on iis

And Access my App am getting some other Email id instead of the john@in.domain.com.

I have changed the Application Pool identity to NetWorkService.

Can any one tell what could be wrong

Thanks

Is there a way to assign a "USER FRIENDLY" name to an "ASSIGNED TO" TASK List?

  
I'm starting to develop simple TASK lists, to assign tasks to a team.  Unfortunately, I'm finding that the ASSIGNED TO field wants to populate user names with a NETWORK-Style name (i.e.,  mycompany.com\jsmith  ), instead of a preferred user name (i.e., John Smith).  The descriptive user name DOES show up for a few users, but not most. I figure that there must be something buried in some user roles/permissions, at some level - but I am still having problems with navigating around the Sharepoint neighborhood to find the options that I want (if they exist). I'd very much appreciate assistance with something that could, I hope, be rather simple. Thanks,

search current logged in user's information in sharepoin list

  

hi guys,

in order to prepopulate some user information, i used query to search the sharepoint list. my question is how to search loggin user's info in the list.

i used following testing query function. it works fine. however, it can only search specific text, cannot be changed according different user.

SPList IsExist;
                    IsExist = SPContext.Current.Web.Lists["somelist"];
                    SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
                    
                    query.Query = @"
                        <Where>
                            <And>
                                <Eq> 
                                    <FieldRef Name='First_x0020_Name'/>
                                    <Value Type='Text'>XXX</Value> 
                                </Eq>

                                    <FieldRef Name='Last_x0020_Name'/>
                                    <Value Type='Text'>XXX</Value> 
                                </Eq>

                        </Where>";

Can I elect which list appears when a user clicks "complete task" in a sharepoint workflow?

  

Hi,

I have a "Collect data from user" task which naturally shows the Workflow Tasks list when the user clicks "Complete Task" and the task form closes.  This is a little confusing for the user who thinks they are working on items in the base list.  Is there a way I can choose which list is shown after the user clicks "Complete Task" (or any action which closes a workflow task)?

I am using SharePoint 2007 Standard Edition and SPD 2007

Many thanks for your help,

Kirsten


Selecting a Task List in Sharepoint Designer 2007 while setting up "Collect Data from User"

  
When using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to Collect Data from User the task list cannot be selected.  Instead the Task list that is defaulted is the most recently created Task List.  How can I select a specific Task list to associate with"Collect Data from User"?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

  
Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item

  
Hi,

 

I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.

 

I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.

 

I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.

 

I have checked my security and I have fu

Can I create several steps to be run on a SharePoint list as a task to run on a daily basis?

  

We have a manual process that we do on a SharePoint list to export data from SharePoint to a spreadsheet that can then be used by non SharePoint programs.  I'd like to be able to automate this process so that it can be scheduled as a Task to run on a daily basis.   Not sure if a workflow can do what I'd like it to.  I have SharePoint Designer 2007 as well.

Here are the steps:

1. Load a particular View of a SharePoint List

2. From the view's Action menu, "Open with Access"

3. Save the resulting Access database as a file to a specific Folder on the computer hosting SharePoint

This would be run as a Task on the computer hosting SharePoint.


How to Set a list item's createdby or modifiedby field as a User(deleted from AD)

  

Hi,

I have to migrate data from SQL DB to SP list. But its old data and some users who created/modified the record has been deleted from the AD. Now I need to set the CreatedBy / ModifiedBy Field of the item accordingly. How to achieve this?

And when I tried to modify the "Editor" and "Author" field through Object Model, it works. But its not working through Webservice. What is the reason behind this?

Please help me find an optimal solution for this...

 

Thanks and Regards,
