Connect "Project Tasks" List's Calendar View to Outlook

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

I would like to connect our department's "Project Tasks"-type list to an Outlook calendar (the same way I can do with a "Calendar"-type list).  

In Sharepoint, I have a nice "Calendar View" (this is a Sharepoint View/Report using the "Calendar" format) of the "Project Tasks"-type List items showing which items were worked on in the past or are to be worked on in the future.  I would like to Connect this view to Outlook, but it appears this "Project Tasks"-type list does not have the "Connect to Outlook" option in the ACTIONS menu.  

I have confirmed that the "Connect to Outlook" option is activated in our "Enable Client Integration" settings per thread ((http://www.eggheadcafe.com/community/aspnet/69/10091824/cannot-see-connect-to-outlook-in-the-actions.aspx).  In fact, if I create a strict "Calendar"-type list (instead of a "Project Tasks"-type list or "Issue Tracking"-type list), I do get the "Connect to Outlook" option in the ACTIONS menu.  I'd li

"Connect to Outlook" and "Open Schedule" disabled in Ribbon on instance of Project Tasks list

  

Hi Everyone,
I am creating a custom list template for "Project Tasks", essentially I need a customized version of the OOB Project Tasks list. I've cloned the OOB feature over to my Visual Studio 2010 solution and I am able to successfully deploy my version as expected, with everything fully functional, gantt chart and everything, except one thing. When I provision an instance of the list using the OOB list template, I am able to see everything in the Ribbon enabled. However, when I provision an instance of my custom list template (clone), I see the "Connect to Outlook" button disabled, as well as the "Open Schedule" button disabled - which allows you to open the task list with Microsoft Project (I have all Office 2010 clients installed, including Microsoft Project).

I am guessing there must be some type of setting somewhere that associates the OOB list template to those Ribbon items that I see as disabled. The only thing different between my list template and the OOB list template is the Type ID. Could this be the problem?

Where should I be looking to troubleshoot this issue?

 


Unable to connect any list or calendar to Outlook in SP 2010

  

I am completely unable to use the Connect to Outlook option on any list inside my SharePoint Foundation installation - the button is present, but remains greyed out and non-functional.

I have confirmed the following:

- The server is using AD and is set up correctly

- SMTP is set up for outgoing mail

- All features available have been activated

- There are no restrictions for the creation of local pst files on my system

- I am running Outlook 2010, 64bit

- The user being used is in an owners group for the site collection and the site, but I've also added direct permissions for the user for all possible permission sets

- I am able to use the Excel services, Visio and Project connections, but not Outlook

- I am using a standard, unaltered task list and calendar, neither of which will permit connection

- I am using IE8

Since the button is greyed out, I'm not even able to get an error message that might tell me something additional.

 

I've been searching for a while, to no avail - what am I missing?

 

Thanks,

 

Adam


Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

  
I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Export to outlook calendar in a custom list?

  
Howdy, I have a custom list with a calendar view. I think it was originally created as a custom list rather than a straight-out calendar for reasons of functionality. However, obviously this, being only a list, doesn't have the "Export to outlook" or "Connect to outlook" feature. I can't really recreate the list from scratch because it's been used for quite a while with a lot of content and custom fields, so is there a way of adding this feature? Thanks, Clark.

Creating calendar view from tasks list programmatically

  
Hi All, I have a Tasks list of type "107" and I am trying to create a Calendar view for the tasks list. The way I created the calendar view is as follows: SPView calView = l.Views.Add("Calendar", l.GetView(l.DefaultView.ID).ViewFields.ToStringCollection(), string.Empty, (uint)100, true, false, SPViewCollection.SPViewType.Calendar, false);<br/><br/> I would like to specify the Time interval, Calendar columns, Default scope for this view. Can anyone point me to documentation for creating a calendar view from tasks list? Do I need to specify that in the viewquery?Thanks.

Calendar View for External Data List in SharePoint 2010?

  
Hello,

I'd like to create a calendar view from data contained in an External List.  My external content type has a Start Date, End Date, and other calendar fields.  Is this possible using the out of the box BCS?

For extra credit - I'd like to then use this calendar as an overlay on other calendars within my SharePoint 2010 application.

Thanks for your help!

Calendar List View Issue - No Month, Week, Day Icons

  

I'm trying to setup a Calendar view for a list in SharePoint 2010. Everything is working the way I want, except there are no icons to change the view from Month, Week, or Day. Right now, if someone clicks on a date on the calendar, it switches to the Day view. But there is no way for them to go back to the month view.

I open the page in SharePoint Designer, and in the Design view I can see three icons on the Calendar (Month, Week, Day). But at no time do these icons show up anywhere except the design view.

I want it to have the arrow buttons, the month and year (which are already displaying) and then the icons to change the view. How do I get them to appear?


Connect to Outlook not working for an External List in 64-bit Office 2010

  

I've used Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2010 to create an External Content Type with Office Item Type 'Contact'. I then created an External List in a SharePoint site to display the items in the External Content Type (after granting permissions on the ECT). When I click 'Connect to Outlook', a VSTO is created and installed. It says, the install is succesful. However, I do not see the contacts in my External List in Outlook. This is a 64-bit version of Outlook 2010. When I click 'Connect to Outlook' again, I get an error: "Cannot install or update this external list on client machine because another update is already in progress".

From another client machine where I installed the 32-bit version of Office 2010, this functionality works great. It seems the VSTO SharePoint BCS creates when you click 'Connecto to Outlook' on an external list, is not compatible with 64-bit versions of Office. Just to make sure there were no other differences between my two machines, I went back to the 64-bit Office client, uninstalled all Office software, then installed the 32-bit version of Office 2010. I then did my test again, and everything worked just great.

So, my conclusion is: Connect ot Outlook does not work on a SharePoint 2010 External List when you are running 64-bit Office 2010.


Not able to see any events in outLook calendar which is integrated with WSS 3.0 Calendar List (User

  

When I click "Actions", "Connect to Outlook" it appears to work and even opens a calendar view.  The calendar is empty though (but the calendar on sharepoint does have entries).  I get the following error message from outlook:

"Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x80070005) : 'You do not have permission to view this SharePoint List . Contact the SharePoint site administrator.  HTTP 302.'"

 

I am able to view the calendar in sharepoint, so I do have permission to view it. 


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?

 

 


Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.

  

I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.


This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view
