Starting Point For Company Intranet

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I'm very new to SharePoint and I have been tasked to create our Intranet site. My question is what design flow should I use? I understand the installation method of SharePoint creates the first Web Application and site collection. These are the steps that I use and please correct my if this is not the correct approach.....I created another web application called intranet.mycompany.com on port 80 and from there I created a new site collection and choose the intranet.mycompany.com web application from the change option. The site collection I called say Company Intranet and chose the team site template. Now should the web site address be at the root level or http://intranet.mycompany.com/sites/ level?

I guess I’m looking for a complete walkthrough guide on creating the Intranet and having sub sites like HR, Accounting, IT, Operations and so on. Is there anything like that out there. Or should I create a separate site collection to secure data like HR and/or Accounting? Forgot to mention i'm using Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise

Starting with Company Website

I have a startup company that I plan on builind and publishing my website for. Nothing major with the first revision - just some information on the company - contact forms and quote request type things, and a blog page to highlight new products etc. I come mostly from using PHP for websites - however since I do a lot of .NET development profesionally I wanted to go the ASP route for my company site. Using Visual Studio 2010 I see I have the option of making an ASP.NET website - or I can go with a project and create an MVC2 application. Would there be any reason to use one over the other for what I wish to acomplish? Will both handle simple things such as in PHP hwere I can create a page and include it dynamically such as using the statement <?php include('header.inc.php') ?> My intention is not to get into a MVC vs WebForms debate - rather I'm trying to make a decision that will allow me to not have to scrap my code when at some point I decide to put in an application such as a portal for photo and video sharing.   Thanks 

Ready to deploy application on company intranet.. need help


I am just about getting ready to deploy my ASP.NET webapplication (C#) which uses .NET 2.0.  I have full access to a Win2k 2003 server with IIS 6.0.

Here are my questions and situations:

1. Only specific users who are part of a security group can access the web app. 

2. Many users are not on the same domain, so I suppose a security group must be created?  So all users are added to one security group?

3. Should I have anonymous access/authentication enabled in this case?

4. How can I set up a way so that when the web application is first accessed, the browser prompts the user for a username/password that is local to entire company IT web server?  When the authentication has been verified, the user is allowed to proceed and the webapplication will load.

5. Will any type of impersonation need to be set in web.config?  Probably not as each user are utilizing their own username as their login credentials?

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

SharePoint: SharePoint Portal Server Makes Your Intranet More Manageable and Easier to Navigate


Most large organizations have mounds of disjointed information in a variety of formats spread out across an enterprise. To make the most efficient use of that information, it must be readily accessible, easy to identify, and simple to navigate. SharePoint Portal Server 2001 unifies information by allowing members of any organization to create, share, and publish documents from a single access point. This article covers the services in SPS that can help an organization improve workflow and information management.

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Trying to launch a .exe file on my local computer from intranet site.


I have been told I can launch a local program on my PC from my intranet site but it has to be done with Active X or vbscript and not javascript.  I found the following little sample html code that will launch notepad.  However, I cannot figure out how to put this in a button, etc., within my aspx or code behind to execute it.  Does anybody have any idea how to do this?  I have a lot of javascript code I am launching urls with and I have even tried using that but again, I have been told that to do it client side it needs to be vbscript or something like this.  Any ideas?

How to create WSP or Package for workflow in Share Point 2007?



I am working on SharePoint 2007. I have created 2 List called "Config List" (this is a list) and "Vacation Form" (this is form library & form designed in infopath). I have also created a workflow on form library "Vacation Form" in Share Point Designer 2007.

With the use of this workflow I am creating some task and updating "Vacation Form".

Now I want to deploy these three thing (Config List, Vacation Form & workflow) on other server.

How do I create a package or WSP file to install these things on different server.

SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically


In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:

					SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
					SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);

					//resolve any lookup parameters
					string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);

					//find workflow association by name
					SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);

					if (workflowAssoc != null)
						//start the workflow
						SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);

And workflow #2  will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified  to Completed.

I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay
