Approve Multiple Through Manage Content and Structure Not Working

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I am trying to approve multiple list items by doing the following:

  1. Manage Content and Structure.
  2. Changing the view of the list to "Pending Approvals".
  3. Selecting all items.
  4. Choosing "Approve" from the "Actions" menu.

Doing this does not result in any approvals; all items remain in the "pending" state.  Some things to note:

  • There are no workflows for this list.
  • I can approve each item one at a time and the status updates to "approved".
  • I am logged in as a site collection administrator.
  • I have tried logging in as the system account to no avail.
  • I have tried choosing "Publish" from the Actions menu to no avail.
  • There are no errors in the event viewer.

Can someone please help with this issue?  I am planning on having lists with hundreds of items and the bulk approve functionality is definitely a requirement.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

Multiple Approval Not Working using Site Content and Structure


Hi all

I have two dummy users. I have given one user contribute permissions and the other as approve permissions. I have enabled content approval on my document libraries, pages library etc. I have created a few pages,documents etc  using the dummy user having contribute permissions. Now using Site Content and Structure's pending approval section i am unable to approve these docs using the second dummy user having Approve permissons.

When logged in as dummy user 2 (having approve permissons) I am able to see all the documents requiring my approval in the pending approval section of Site Content and Structure. But when i check all the check boxes and click on approve its not getting approved. The page refreshes but the items still remain in the pending approval section without any change.

Please Help...

WSS 3.0 Content & Structure Reports aren't working


I'm having trouble with one specific site and the content and structure reports.  In all my wss 3.0 sites, I go to Site Actions>View Reports and choose a specific CAML query.  In one site, I choose a default report such as "Checked out to Me" and I am taken to just the View: Default View. I'll change the drop down again to a different report again such as "Checked out to Me" and it refreshed the view again back to Default View.

What's going on? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks for your time and help!

Custom action to actions- menu on "manage content and structure" sitemanager.aspx page


Hi all


I need to add custom action to actions menu of document library when user is in "content and structure" and can multiselect items from doclib. (doc lib is active in left side)


Any ideas how to add that?


By default the Action menu contains items copy,move,delete|checkout,discard checkout, checkin,publish,unpublish


Other option would be to add multiselect support to doc libraries.


Thanks for the ideas in advance,




Is there something else I need to 'check' to approve multiple documents


I can't seem to approve multiple documents even when following the proper procedure.

I'm using MOSS, with an internet/Publishing site.  I go to site actions >> manage Content, check the checkboxes next to the items I need approved/checked in (they all have the same 'status' like draft, or pending), I click either approve or check in/publish depending on what I'm trying to do, and the only item that gets approved is the last item I checked. 

There is a workflow attached that when I click approve, I'm brought to the approval workflow page to add approvers and such, but it only lists one item for approval.

Anyone have any idea why that is, or has anyone experienced this before? 

Please heeeeeeeeeeeelp.

Content and Structure Report not showing all items

I have an environment where the Site Owner is not seeing all items pending approval when they access that view from the root node in the Content And Structure section.

We can see pending items in this view if they access some of the lower level nodes in the tree structure, just not from the top node.

I've noticed that the second level nodes are not inheriting permissions from the root node, but I'm not sure if that is relevant. I've also checked the CAML for the Pending Approval view and it has not been altered in any way.

Any ideas?

Add new content types to multiple libraries


We use MOSS for document management and content types for document types (i.e. specification, quote, PO etc.)).  We would like to add additional content types to our libraries.  I was hoping to find a tool that would help me to propagate these new content types ad I am not a programmer.



User control with multiple item content

I have a user control that I would like to contain multiple items as its content, similar to the way a <StackPanel> works. I tried using a <ContentPresent/> but it will only let me use a single item as the control's content. What's the best way to go about this? I realize I could just require the user to put a <StackPanel> or <Grid> or similar control as the content of the user control, but i would rather not do that if possible.   I'm not sure if it matters, but this control actually has several content presenters. Some of them will contain a single item and some will contain multiple items.

How to manage multiple sessions from the same pc

#Newbie alert#  Only 8 months experience with school education back in 2002.   I'm using VS 2008, C# 3.5 to develop my own login system for our company website. Originally we have a "simple" design which only had a login and order page. That order page needs to be opened for 10-12 hours at the time while our stores are opened without having to relog into the system for each query. We also have a requirement that some users need to access 2 different compagnies (separate inventories) which require 2 different logins. I solved that "cross over" session problem by moving all the values into viewstate with my own viewstate manager class right after the login. Now my problem is that we are adding more and more pages and I don't want to be stuck with the problem to resave the viewstate to session and then back on viewstate for every menu items and buttons.   Is there a way to create some sort of items list of all the sessions opened by the user and only transmit that from pages to pages?

working with multiple data sets

i am new to ssrs and looking for guidance : i need to develop a report based on multiple tables: general ledger, customer ledger and customer master... the purpose of report is to have customer segment wise sales and expense information.... for given month and YTD. customer segments are defined in customer master, sales is in customer ledger and expenses are in general ledger.. the problem i am facing are: 1. I need to display all customer segments, and if no sales /expenese for any segment, then show 0 values.. .however, if i join tables and apply WHERE clause for date..i am missing some segments due to lack of data within where condition 2. i believe having subqueries is expensive when u r dealing with millon records. further i want to know how to have a calculated field based on two different dataset fields.  

Why is the Content by Query Web Part CommonViewFields attribute not working as expected?

I am using the Content by Query Web Part to show data from a Custom List.  I have already added to the XSL "ItemStyle" sheet so that I can pick the correct Item Style.  That has worked fine - I have been able to show whatever fields I would like and apply any CSS Styles I would like to them.  The issue I am having is in formatting the field correctly.  I have two different fields in my current example that need to be formatted: [1] I want to show an Image, but right now it shows the URL  [2] I want to show Rich Text, but right now it shows all the HTML Code as Plain Text.  I have looked at many articles online, and they all tell me to change the following in the WEBPART file from: <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string" /> to: <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">Thumbnail, Image;Teaser, RichHTML;</property> What I am doing wrong?  The Web Part still runs, but it does not format the fields any differently.  Thanks for the help!

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Content and Structure reports

Hello, I have 4 production sites that I work on.  1 of these sites uses content deployment to the other 3 sites to keep the top page and navigation in sync between the 4 sites. We a sort of different from the norm, where content deployment is used for test -> production. At the global site I have created a content and structure report that shows only a users incomplete tasks.  I wrote the caml on a different system and got it running on a dev system, then copied the query to production.  Thing is that the query works everywhere except the one global site that content deploys to all other sites.  If the query were broken then it wouldn't work at the other sites, but it does so I don't think it is the caml query.  Just in case I have included it below. <Where><Or><And><Eq><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo" LookupId="TRUE"/><Value Type="int"><UserID /></Value></Eq><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq></And><And><Membership Type="CurrentUserGroups"><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/></Membership><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq>
