Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Sharepoint 2010 & Exchange Public folders?

HI All, We are planning to move our Public folders to SharePoint 2010. But Before I would do that. I would like to know: 1. Can we receive emails with attachments in Sharepoint 2010? If yes, how the attachments are stored? Inside the email or separate? 2. How the mail enabled library and lists are different from Mail enabled public folders and Distribution list? 3. What is the format of the mail, .msg or .eml when saved in SharePoint? 4. How do we view content of the sharePoint public folder site inside outlook client? 5. What are features of Public Folders that I can't accomplish using SharePoint 2010?     Your help would be highly appreciated...      

SharePoint 2007 - Calendar view of many teams



Many teams are using the SharePoint 2007 feature in my company.

Hide public view of list on left menu - no SD - Sharepoint 2003


Hi folks,

I'm working in a crippled sharepoint environment - basically our multinational company has given us a Sharepoint with a Teamsite template and no tools to get the best out of it.

I have created a site with a list containing 3 public views. 2 of these views are for the "the workers" to input and view data. The 3rd view has all items, and is for management information for a select number of users. These users do not use the view directly, it is picked up by an Excel spreadsheet.

The 3rd view in it's completeness is sensitive information, and we would like to remove the view from the views menu on the left hand side. I suspect that this may be possible using javascript code, in a CEWP. I am making this assumption because this article seems to be doing something similar:


I am not familiar with javascript or the objects referred to, although I have used javascript previously to amend column widths in a view. 

Any suggestions?




View all resources on a SharePoint group calendar by default.


I have set up a group calendar in SharePoint and added 10 items to the associated Resources list.  By default resource bookings will not appear on the group calendar unless you manually select the resources through the interface.  I would like the calendar's default view to display all bookings (or all available resources) by default.  Anyone have recommendations on the best way to do this?


SharePoint 2010 Search - Exchange 2010 Public Folders


Hello,  I have two questions that may be fairly complex.  We have just built a SharePoint 2010 test environment and are crawling Exchange 2010 Public folders with search.

We have portal links pointing to public folder HTTP addresses that have been broken since the HTTP functionality went away in exchange 2010.  We have since built a SharePoint 2010 instance and are using OWA to crawl the Exchange 2010 public folders (per http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806927.aspx).  This seems to be working well with a few caveats.

Question #1:  Now that we have all of our public folder data in the index, is there a way to form a query that will give me only items in a specific fublic folder discussion path?  before E2k10, we would link to something like http://ExchangeServer/public/TopNodeFolder/Level2NodeFolder/DiscussionBoard?Cmd=contents.  Now, what we are hoping to do is add links with formed queries to the portal that point to result sets that are being served from the Search index.  i.e. Give me all the items that have this public folder path in the path.  Is this possible?  I would like the user experience to be a list of

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh
