How to display list data from subsites

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi Forum,

I am trying to set up a Sharepoint 2010 Server and miss a feature I know from Sharepoint 2007.

I have set up a new Site Collection with several Subsites. Lets call them: Main, Site 1, Site 2, Site 3 ....

Now I create a Document Library in the Main Site. On the Startpages of the Subsites I would ike to have a preview on the Document Library of the Main Site. So that I have only one Document repository, but different Sites can look at this Doclib with a specific filter.

I found a pretty nice Instruction on what I would like to to do in 2007. you find it here: http://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=56f96349-3bb6-4087-94f4-7f95ff4ca81f&ID=101

But i need to do this in 2010 and I am Missing the "connect to another library" Button.

I hope anybody can help me and tell me how I have to do this in 2010?

Best way to display data of a single column from a Sharepoint Custom List

I'm trying to create pages that will automatically populate with data pulled from a sharepoint list (like title, department, contact info, etc.).   I'm using publishing pages. What would be the easiest way to do this, and how would I specify which data to pull from the list? For example, the page would be set up like this: [Title:biology] [Department:biology] [Contact Info:biology]   and when the page loads, it would look like this: Biology Lab Biology Department 123-456-7890   I want it to just pull the data -- I don't want a list view or anything like that.  I need this page to look pretty, and I need the each column's data to show up in a very specific place. How could I make pages that would do that?

Display Originating List Data into Workflow Task



I have two needs that my users have requested. I am limited to SharePoint designer due to environment restrictions. 

  1. Is it possible to display information from the original list in the workflow task that was created? This is so the users don't have to click back into the original list to see the details of what they are approving.
  2. Is it possible to put the Approve / Reject buttons directly in-line with the tasks? This is so the user can approve the item without ever leaving the list of tasks they have been assigned?
Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Display list data in a Basic Page

Hey everyone.  I'm hoping to create a custom list in our MOSS 2007 server with information about our servers (name, IP address, MAC address, RAM, etc), but have the server name be a hyperlink that would take you to a basic page with more detailed information about the server itself (perhaps a picture of the server model, associated notes, etc).  What I need to know is if and how to display the custom list data on the Basic Page.  For example, if we have a server's RAM already in the list, how do I get the basic page to show that field for that particular server (rather than having to update the information in both places, I update the list and the basic page automatically reflects the change).  I presume this is going to require Sharepoint Designer work...
