  • Is it normal for the Target Audience to be displayed as a GUID in email alerts? user232

    On MOSS 2007 SP2, I have an announcement list that had audience targetting enabled. Users have email alerts set on that list for when new items change. The email displays the tartget audience as a guid - is that normal?

    I tried to google for the information, but the closest I could find talks about the problem showing up in the version history.

  • Yes. Global audiences are stored as GUIDs within the audience targeting field, and the default email alert template doesn't do any extra formatting to make it more user-friendly.

  • Is there a way I can customize the alert subscription email sent to users when they subscribe (or their subscription added by System Administrator) to a list for Alerts? I've gone through Microsoft.Sharepioint.ApplicationPages.SubNewPage but the method that adds alerts is too cryptic :(

  • Within my workflow I am using the 'Collect Data from user'. I want to send a custom email (by turning of alerts on the Task list) and using the Send Email action. My problem is I want to send a link with the task to approve in an email to the user the task has been assigned to (approver). But the action ''Collect Data from user' pauses until the task is edited which won't happen because I haven't sent the details to the approver via an email! Is there any way to get around this? Or get a reference from a newly created task back to item that created it from the 'Collect Data from user

  • I have a web part which I am trying to target to a specific audience (the 'Staff' audience.) I have the web part in the home page of a site that has anonymous access enabled. I have set the Target Audience of the webpart to 'Staff'. The idea is that anonymous viewers can't see the web part, but logged-in members of staff can see the webpart. This works fine, as long as I am browsing the site from the server on which SharePoint is running, using the internal domain name (e.g. http://localhost:5050/site). If I view the site home page while not logged in, I can't see the webpart

  • I've SharePoint Server 2007 installed on Windows Server 2003 (x32). I'm trying to create Alerts but I get the error: The following users do not have e-mail addresses specified: System Account, pc-Name\user1, pc-Name\user2. Alerts have been created successfully but these users will not receive e-mail notifications until valid e-mail addresses have been provided I am not able to even edit user profile information.

  • I wrote a web part that pretty much just grabs info from an announcements list on one site, and redisplays it on another. Everything pretty much works fine except when I edit the web part, in the properties panel, I don't have the option for audience targeting. Which sucks, because I need to target this web part. Any ideas what could be causing this? Note:SharePoint 2007, Visual Studio 2010, WSPBuilder

  • I currently have a normal SharePoint list with about 15 columns or so. I need one of the columns to have a list of links. I know SharePoint lets you have 1 link and it also lets you have multiple lines of text... So I thought it would be there as an option, but no such luck. Anyone knows a solution for this? I wasn't able to find any info online, which doesn't happen often. I guess I wasn't... in stackoverflow (where I had asked this originally.)

  • sorry if this is a noob question, but I have to start somewhere! I'm working with Sharepoint 2007. I have a custom content type, Room Booking Event. When one is created, I want to start a workflow where the following happens: Using email, I want to send the details of the room booking (fields in the list), to an approver Ideally, I want the approver to be able to approve the booking right there in Outlook (using an InfoPath form?) If thats not possible, I could include a link to the content approval page I'm really not sure where to start here. I have had a look at the OOTB approval

  • system is needed and that Microsoft advises to use Windows 7 64 bit and install SharePoint 2010 on it. I think that won't be an option for me as I only have one computer here at work and I don't like to install SharePoint on the same machine that I use for my normal office work (email stuff, writing concept papers, ...). Am I right that I only have two other options? Using Server 2008... you chose? What experiences have you already made?
