Organization hierarchy My site

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



Organization hierarchy on my site profile page is not showing proper hierarchy connections. Let me explain – I have imported user profiles from AD, most of the profiles are showing correct hierarchy (for example – CEO – President – VP). But some of the profiles are not showing correct hierarchy(not in correct order). Someone can please help me regarding this?

Organization Hierarchy - Manger not showing


SharePoint 2007 SP2 on Server 2008 R2

I am doing a custom profile import using AD and a BDC connection.  All the data comes in and populates correctly, including the 'Manager' field which is being populated from the BDC entity. All main fields are being populated from the BDC entity.  Fields are; First name, last name, email, office and cell phone, and manager.

However, when viewing the Organization Hierarchy, the users 'Manager' is not showing up in the Hierarchy. Nothing above the current user is shown in the Hierarchy.  The Manager field is populated with a valid user.  If I display the Manager field in the 'Details' section, I can see the name and click on it to see their profile page as well, so it is all valid and accurate.

Colleagues ( users with the same Manager ) are listed in the Hierarchy, but none of their hierarchy's show the manager either.

I have deleted every profile and then done a full import several times with the same result. Incremental import does ont have any affect either.

Any suggestions or advice on how to get the Manager to display?

Thanks to all!

SharePoint initial site hierarchy setup question


Hello, I thought this question would be a setup/configuration/operation question, any thoughts or advices will be greatly appreciated!!

So we would like to stand up couple of team sites (3-4 total) for these different programs, on our enterprise SharePoint environment which is MOSS 2007. Usually

what happens with our enterprise SP is that we request a SP site by filling out a form and they just give us a site collection with Site Owner level permissions.

What would be the reasons I would want to have all these sites under a Site collection named "Programs" and have each sites as sub-sites VS. have 4 different site

collections for each of the programs? 

I understand it depends on the situation, and I thought it would be better if we would have separate site collections...please correct me if i'm wrong.

These programs are unrelated so there would be no need for a centralized navigation with a top-level page, no need for a search across all 4 program sites, and we

would actually like to have these in separate contentDBs to do backups. So I thought it would be best to just have these as separate site collections, and just

have like a link to different site collections in case users want to go to other program sites... I just couldn't think of any reasons to have

Advice on List/site organization


I work for a sales company and we're slowing rolling out SharePoint 2010 on WSF. Maybe someday they see the need for moss, but not now.


So the company has Regions which contain Branches and then employees are within those branches.

I also have MSCharts inside web parts that deliver data for sales employees and branch managers ( which see all of thier employees ).


This is currently residing within a data base for mapping the regions, branches, employees. I would like to maybe create groups and sites to take the mappings out of the database and give each branch it's own site. We already have Active Directory groups mapped to some SharePoint groups for permissions.

Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to go with this? I'd rather have it where an IT admin can just move users around in SharePoint groups or site permissions to manage the tree and my web parts can see who is a member of the tree as opposed to keeping the database holding the mapping.

Ideas? Don't want to go the wrong direction with this.

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

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.
