Improvements with Sharepoint and Outlook calendar integration?

  
The "Connect to Outlook" feature is a great feature to synchronize Outlook 2007 and Sharepoint 2007. It allows showing events created from Sharepoint calendars in Outlook. But for me, there are some limitations that really blocked some users of using Sharepoint calendar:

- even if users can detect manually conflicts in outlook between sharepoint events and their own events of their own Outlook calendar, there is no automatic alert.
- when creating events from Sharepoint, users cannot invit attendees
- if users have already created an event into their own outlook calendar, their is no way to publish it to Sharepoint

Actually I would like to know if Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook 2010 will improve these points.

Thank you.



Access, InfoPath, Outlook & SharePoint Integration

  

I work for a major banking institution, in a group whose remit it to provide account ownership information for ~300k accounts worldwide.  In this instance “account ownership” is defined as the bank employee who is responsible for verifying and attesting to monthly transactions and balances in each individual account.  Each account owner can have one or many individual accounts.

I have developed an MS Access database to house the account information, and have developed an MS InfoPath form to collect data from the account owner.  Currently, I have a direct connection between the database and the form but would like to migrate to MS SharePoint site because of the limitations (both user and security) of MS Access.

Ideally, on a monthly basis, I would like to:

Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue

  

Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:


Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

Reporting Services in SharePoint integration - configurtion errors in 64bit version

Reporting Services and Sharepoint Integration - Sharepoint Alternate Access Mappings (Zones)

  
I get the following error when I try to navigate to a report/model/data source, stored in a Sharepoint Document Library using a Sharepoint URL based on an Extranet or Intranet zone - but it works OK using the url for the Default zone: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.SecurityZoneNotSupportedException: The specified path refers to a SharePoint zone that is not supported. The default zone path must be used. Is this a limitation of the SQLRS-WSS3 integration or is there a workaround? Many thanks to anyone who can help!

Problem Integration SQL Reporting Service 2005 and SharePoint 2007

  
Hello, I'm trying to make our SQL Reports available on our SharePoint report center. I have SQL 2005 (sp3) report server that resides on a different server than our SharePoint 2007 server. So in our SRS Configuration Tool, we changed the database mode for SharePoint integration (before, we only had it in native mode), so we created a new database for this SharePoint Integration type. Next, I installed the Report Server Add-in for SharePoint 2007 server and it was successful. However when configuring the Report Server, we got stuck at the step "Grant Database Access". For some reason we keep getting error message "Named instance not found" We already installed Service Pack 3 on the Report Server... I heard that the problem is because the mismatched version between the Report Server Add-in in SharePoint and the SQL RS version... but I don't think this is the case for us. Do we need to install WSS on our Report Server too?     Another question: We already integrate our Report Server with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. However I see that when the Report Server is in the SharePoint Integration mode, all the reports in CRM don't work (because Report Manager is no longer available in this mode). Do you think it would be the best practice to install a copy of Report Server instance in our SharePoint 2007 server? Thank you, greatly appreciate all your hel

Outlook Data, Sharepoint

  
I've created a custom list in sharepoint 2007.  I used the people picker option by selecting (Person or Group) for the type of information in this column.  In the additional column settings there is a show field drop down that contains various information you can display for the user.  Problem 1 : I select a person from the people picker on the form page, the result would display Last Name, First Name even though I selected Work Email in the show field drop down while creating the column.  However it displays properly on the custom list after saving the form.  Is there a way to change the display on the edit page? Problem 2:  I would like to auto populate fields.  Is there a way I could auto populate the list or edit form based off an employee ID such as department local etc.  All this information is in outlook but it doesn't seem to be accessable through sharepoint OTB. I created the list through sharepoint OTB on a team site and I'm using SharePoint Designer to create work flows. Thanks for the help!

Sharepoint 2010 Business Intelligence integration with datasources other than MS SQL Server

  
I want to Implement Business Intelligence by SharePoint 2010 on top of data sources other than MS SQL Server or MS Analytics Services ( cubes ), for example Oracle RDBMS and Oracle OLAP ( cube ) or Teradata. Quesiton : Is there any way to do this, if the is, how do I bring metadata to sharepoint BI or how do I make SharePoint BI to see other data source. I've looked at Busines Data Connectivity in Visual Studio, but that is more for two way integration and didn't seem like a good or easy way just to bring new data sources to SharePoint BI I found some tool from third party company "BDC Meta Man" which created metadata layer for Oracle RDBMS in SharePoint, but I thought there must be a way to do it by using Microsoft tools
