  • How to disable sending of approval email in a publishing site? George2

    I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with the publishing portal template. I have granted anonymous access to the entire site.

    When updating/checking-in a page, an approval notification email is sent in order to complete the page publishing approval process. Is there any setting to skip sending outgoing email for this approval process? Sending the email is an excessive step for my department.

  • You can avoid the workflow and notification by turning off the approval workflow.

  • I have an InfoPath form embedded in a MOSS 2007 page. The form is for requesting approval for a project. The submit button submits the form data to a form library. That triggers a workflow to get approval for the request. So far, my workflow uses the "Collect Data From User" action and the "Send and email" action. I configured data collection option so that there are two inputs: two radio buttons for approve/reject and a comment field. I built the email body and subject using dynamic strings and variables from the form data. I would like this approval process to be simple for the person

  • I am using SharePoint 2007 + Windows Server 2008 with SharePoint 2007's publishing portal template. When publish a page, I have to go through check-in/request for approval/approve process.

  • I am using SharePoint 2007 Server x64 on Windows Server 2008 x64. I create a new SharePoint web application with a new site collection at the root of the web application. I select the template "publishing portal" for the site collection. I have also enabled anonymous access. Now the basic function is fine, except that I do not know how to change the first front page (i.e. the page showed to end users who have not logged in yet) of the site. Here is a screen snapshot.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with the publishing portal template. I have granted anonymous access to all the sites. I have set some users to be the Approver role. Since during the document publishing workflow, SharePoint workflow needs to send email to approvers, I am wondering how to set the email address of a specific approver? And if the email I set for a specific approver is like [email protected], do I also need to set the SMTP/POP3 server of gmail (if needed, how)?

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with template publishing portal. I have grant anonymous access to all the site. My question is, if I create a new page, how do I grant permission to an anonymous user to access (read permission) the page? I got confused because for the permission setting of a page, a permission is set according to a user name (e.g. read permission for user "foo" of a page). Since anonymous user does not have a related "user name", how could I grant read permission to anonymous user? BTW: I use Windows Forms authentication

  • 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

  • I'd like to turn off Content Approval, for all libraries, (Page, Document, Images) once, at a Site Collection level and, hopefully, it will be automatically set across the entire site collection. Having it off helps during the development of a Publishing Site. Once all the content/web parts are in then it would be good to turn it back on before going to UAT/Prod. Having approval workflows start in dev is just a waste of time. I'm working in SP2010, but MOSS 2007 is still relevant as I have sites in both platforms.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I have created a list in top level site. And I want to use the list in a child site (e.g. adding the list to a page in child site by using Page --> Add Web Parts --> Browse), but can not find the list created in parent site in this way. Any ideas how to use the list (created in parent site) in a child site? BTW: I can use the list (created in parent site) in parent site without any issues.
