Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All,

I am in the modist of rolling of SharePoint2010 pilot phase to internal users in my organization, I would like to hear from the experts on the following.

While trying to cerate a re-usable workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010, I am using the default action of "To-Do Task" , the issue here is in the out-of-the-box it sates that I got to hard-code the users whom I want to send this email, but I would like users to choose whom they would like to notify rather than hard-coding.

Any advice?

Empty field on Alert Notification email sent to user when they add an 'Alert Me'




I'm trying to figure out the empty field that should be populated in the email that a user receives when adding an alert. The missing field is the bit in single quotes that is blank. I have added a link to a screenshot below as well.

What is the source of this field? Any ideas why it is blank?


thanks in advance.


Alert 'xxx' has successfully been added on '' .

You will receive alerts in e-mail. The timing and criteria for the alerts depend on the settings entered when the alert was added.

You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on this Site page.



Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint.

email notification error 5.1.1


 I am getting an error when sending email via asp.net.  The error is "Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.1.1...User unknown."

However, the email is getting sent.  Why is asp.net returning this error?

I'm using VS 2008, vb.net,  running 2.0 framework.  This happens regardless of whether I'm testing my application from my local machine or running production version.  Also, I can send a batch of emails and get the error for some but not all.

I would like to be able to count of the error messages really being accurate, so this situation is unhelpful to our users, because they will start to just ignore all error messages.




How to write an event to manage permissions on a document while uploading, depending on custom field

Please advise.


Uploading documents directly to record center libraries in MOSS


Hello all,

We have several pdf documents that are records and we want to maintain them in record center. These documents were not part of any collaboration sites. They are all in a shared folder. So there is no audit history and version history for these documents which is typical of any collaboration area documents.

The question I have is, will there be any disadvantages of directly uploading the document to record center library instead of setting up routing rules and submitting the document using OfficialFile.asmx.

I have noticed that when we submit a document using Send To, Record Center's default router renames the file and makes it a unique file name by appending _uniqueId. In my case, all the files are uniquely named and I am not worried about file name clashes.

Is it advisable to directly upload the documents to record cente

How to email documents from Sharepoint (WSS3.0)

Hi there,   I am very new to sharepoint so if this is a common / obvious question, please forgive me.   I have just set-up our company's internal website using sharepoint. Thankfully everyone loves it and we are getting great results from it.   I am however having the following problem:   I have created a document library that contains PDF versions of our company's catalogue. The idea was that staff members could access the catalogue, as well as send the PDF's to customers via email.   I was hoping that there was a way I could add the functionality to send these PDF's as opposed to sending a link (that the external customers cannot open). I realise that we could simply open the document and then email it from within the PDF reader, however I was hoping that there would be a more elegant solution.   Any help would be much appreciated.   Thanking you in anticipation.   Regards,   Warren

notification email not sent when updating a task programmatically

I have a task that's in the task list and has no value in the Assigned To field. When I update the field like this: listItem[SPBuiltInFieldId.AssignedTo] = SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.ID; ListItem.Update(); The task is updated (the assigned to has filled in). But no notification has been send to the person in the assigned to. But when I change the assigned to manualy to another person, and then again to the person it was before, the notification is send. So the email works and the notifications are activated, why is there no notification sent when I change the assigned to programmatically?

Site FAQ: Email Notification Settings

There are several settings that come into play with email notifications coming from the ASP.NET forums:Edit Profile (http://forums.asp.net/user/EditProfile.aspx)1. Receive Emails: [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the master email switch. Setting this to [ ] No will prevent ALL forums-related emails from being sent to you, including password reset emails (if you find yourself in that situation, please use the site's Contact form to request password reset assistance).  Setting this back to [ ] Yes will allow emails to once again be sent to you.  This setting could be handy if you will be away from the ASP.NET Forums for a while and are not interested in receiving emails from the site while you are away.2. Receive rich (HTML) emails [ ] Yes [ ] No - This affects only the format in which emails are sent.  It has no bearing on whether or not emails are sent.  If [ ] No is chosen, the email will be sent in plain text.3. Enable Email Notifications of forum/thread subscriptions and replies to my posts. [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the default value of thread subscriptions. This value is checked only at the time of your first post to a thread, and the thread subscription is set to this value. Changing this value has no effect on any existing thread subscriptions. To discontinue (or start) receiving email notifications for a particular thread, see #5 below.&n

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.

Sharepoint 2010 uploading documents programatically

Hi All I'm a newbie and hoping that someone can help me with a problem that I am having. I have written a WinForms app to upload documents to Sharepoint 2010 document library using client object model. It works great unless the file is more than 3MB. The error returned is "The remote server returned an error (400) Bad Request". The files are being uploaded from my local machine to the SharePoint 2010 site. I searched the internet for 2 days trying to find a solution to this without any joy. I have tried increasing the maxRequestLength and executionTimeout in web.config. The program uses a file stream to put the file in a btye array which then becomes the content of a filecreationinformation object. As I said, it loads files OK if they are less than 3MB, so I think that the code is OK. The max document size in SharePoint is 50mb. I really need some help please....   Blaithin

Error while downloading and uploading Documents from document library



We have a set of documents in a document library, which we are trying to download. if i click on the document and try to download, it takes a lot of time and then reports a error message.

Exception from HRESULT: 0x80041050

Now when we also try to upload documents, it does not allow us to upload the documents and reports a exception.

We tried to research through through the error, it gaves us while downloading the document, it is somewhat related to the Antivirus issues and looks like a document that is infected. This is only related to some documents and not all documents.


Let us know if there is any where to work around this issue and allow users to upload and download documents or how to tackle the antivirus issue.


It looks like the SharePoint antivirus has flagged off some of the so-called infected documents with some non-zero values, the resolution to this as suggested by microsoft is to re-run the anti-virus, so that the document value can be set to zero again and have the file downloaded.

Your help will be highly appreciated in this regards.
