Customizing My site under MOSS

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
Hi Everyone,
I am planning to use My site link as a org chart, but I need to customize it to some extent.
basic things I am looking for are as follows:

1) Data entered by the different users should be approved by a moderator(Site Admin) before it's visible to others.
2) Site Admin?moderator should have access to update/edit any person's information, but once its changed the Site Admin, the affected person should get an e-mail notification
3) Is there a way I can add more fields and I can search a person by the skill sets?
4) I am planning to show a Org-Chart on the home page which will be read from the Active Directory, please let me know how can I do this..
By now you guys would have judged that I am not much into coding :)

Any help you guys can offer is highly appreciated.

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

MOSS Site with Basic Authentication and variations does not work on one node

Hi, We have one MOSS Farm with two nodes, on this we have several sites. For one specific site we have Basic Authentication and variations enabled in it, on one node site works fine. When we browse it pops-up for credentials and once credentials are provided it works fine and properly redirect to source variation home page. But on the other node when we browse the site it pops-up asking for credentials then after providing correct credentials it again asks for credentials twice and then it throws the following error : Access denied.   You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource. And if we directly put the source site homepage url it throws following error: 401 UNAUTHORIZED We have checked the Alternate Access Mappings for the site and it is perfectly fine, if i enable windows authentication on the defected node the site works fine. This issue is just like pain in the neck still no resolution, please help us to resolve this issue. Regards, Jasjeet Singh

User keeps getting deleted from MOSS site

Hello All, There is one user with contribute rights who keeps getting deleted from a team sub site that is on MOSS 2007. She has weekly reports that she works on and i was told that she doesnt really get on to the site very often except once or twice a week to update the reports. There is only one business owner of the site apart from me and who can modify permissions. So i cannot think of anybody else who has access to mess with user permissions. Has anybody had this issue before ?

Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.
