How to combine multiple task lists on multiple sites into single task list which then connects to Ou

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

Hi,

I'm hoping someone can provide some insight into a problem I'm having.

 

I have been tasked with trying to find a way to create multiple sites within the same site collection with a standard Task list in each site.  Now, I'd like to combine each of those task lists into one single task list viewable by the managers.  I know I can create a dataview, however I haven't been able to get that view into Outlook using the "Connect to Outlook" option in the Actions Menu of a task list.

 

Is there a way this can be done?


Any help is appreciated.

Is it possible for a sharepoint VIEW to aggregate multiple TASK LISTS?

  

I have a few TASK LISTS, each with identical structure, that can't be combined initially, based on the groups that control the task lists.  ALL Task Lists reside on the same SITE.  I would like to find a way to "UNION JOIN" multiple task lists under a single Tasks List VIEW, if that can be done.  Alternately, is there a WEB PART that can do this?

Is there a way to merge multiple similar-structured task lists within a single site - and if so, how would it be done?

Connect to Outlook a Task list that has Tasks with Multiple users assigned

  

Using MOSS 2007 SP2 and Outlook 2007 SP2 

I go to a task list that has multiple users assigned to a task.

I setup the connect to outlook for this list, and in outlook I only see the tasks that have a single user assigned.

None of the multiple user assigned tasks are visable, is this how it is supposed to work?

 

 


Data flow task with multiple destinations randomly hangs

  
I have a package whose control flow consisting of a single data flow task with multiple destinations continues to hang at random locations.  The data flow task is fairly simple: - One OLE DB source (one query of selecting about 10 fields from one table) - 9 lookups that serve basically as left joins to capture which data "drops off" (does a row redirect on on lookup errors to an "error flow") - Two destinations: one the captures all the data that doesn't drop off from the lookups, and another to capture the data that does drop off; these write to two tables unrelated to each other, and unrelated to any of the tables I'm reading from I have tried the following: - Changed one or both destinations from OLE DB to flat file -- still randomly hangs - Removed both destinations altogether -- this always suceeds.   - Removed destination A and leave destination B -- this always succeeds - Removed destination B and leave destination A -- this always succeeds I took great care in making sure I get no warnings when the package runs, even resolving the unneeded column warnings, and the duplicate keys on all my lookups, but it still hangs. However, once I give up and stop the package, the following error is thrown (among others that appear to be a byproduct of the root issue): Error: 0xC02020C4 at Data Flow Task, OLE_SRC AP12 [1]: The attempt to

Please advice how to receive multiple file based on a variable BR, AWM

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?

Send multiple parameters SSIS execute process task

  

Hi,

We are using Execute Process Task in SSIS package to execute a batch file to house keep the generated flat files which are older than a week from the archive folder.

The same batch file is used to delete the some temp files generated in the process.

As the Archive folder and temp folder paths are configurable, we are trying to pass the folder paths as parameters to batch file.

I used Expressions tab of Execute process Task Editor to map the variable to Arguments property. This is working fine. but I need to pass one more variable as an Argument.

Can some one help me how to achieve this. Thanks in advance.

Combining lists from multiple sites into SPGridview

  

I have one main SharePoint site which has 5 child sites. Each child site represents a different department. On each of these sites there is a list called "ActionPlans". These lists all have the same name and the same number of columns. I need to somehow combine the 5 "ActionPlans" from the child sites into one on the main page.

I was able to loop through the SharePoint object and pull out one list, populate a datatable and display it in the SPGridview. I am having problems looping through the other sites and combining all lists.

Please help, Ninel

Multiple Content Types in a single list - how to edit fields outside a content type

  
I have a single list and created two content types on the list in order to reduce the amount of visible fields a user sees when entering a form.  Once the form is filled out by one group with the limited data, an alert is sent to another team that adds to the list item using the larger set of fields defined by the second content type.  Unfortunately it seems that the edit burron remembers ihe initial content type that the entry was created with.  Is there another url to access the edit button for the same entry using the alternate content typr?

Gentlemen,

 

I have got an issue with InfoPath form generated for my SharePoint Designer workflow task. There is a multiple users selector that requests users from a task assignee. The problem is that only the first user entered got saved.

MOSS 2007 - Propagate changes to multiple sites and lists

  
We use MOSS 2007 for doc mngmt and maintain individual sites containing lists and libraries for each of our 90+ projects.  All sites are created from a site template and we wish to keep them all identical.  How should I push out changes and updates as business requirements change?  In other words, if we change/update the template, how can I make all the sites and lists look the same?

Multiple Event Receivers For Single List

  

 

I've developed a custom event receiver that fires of the ItemUpdated event for a list. While this code works fine in our dev environment, it appears to not function correctly in production. I have been told that there's another event receiver that also fires on the ItemUpdated event for the same list.

 From the behavior I have seen, it would appear the the two event receivers are "colliding" with one other. Is there anything that I can do to work around this problem? Is there a way to specify an order that the receivers are fired or some other way to prevent them from stepping on each other?
