We need to automate booking of technicians through SharePoint. We have different number of technicians available each day. The users can look at the calendar to see availability, after they select a time when a technician is available they are presented with form asking for some details. Submit a form books a technician and sends an email to IT department.
Does any one know of available products to solve this task?
I have implemented something like this by customising the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Application Template: Absence Request and Vacation Schedule Management (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=56406562-01F9-4A18-9924-2DC0684232C8&displaylang=en).
It is not perfect but it is a nice starting point.
I like the Event Planning template better for my purposes but can't figure out how to limit number of people able to attend an event. Limit corresponding to how many technicians are available.
We have a InfoPath Form Library with Visual Studio Workflows on an MOSS 2007. Now to some of the form we're missing tasks in the tasklist and there isn't a status in the column of the workflow. But the workflow had been started ... we're noticing, that all the affected forms have in common that the workflow (and the tasks of course) was finished. Has somebody an idea what happened? Is there maybe a process or a setting that "cleans up" finished tasks and workflows?
I'd like to create a custom content type in SharePoint 2007 (WSS 3.0) that inherits from the existing XML Document content type (i.e. an InfoPath form) but I want to use custom ASP.NET forms to edit the XML. Is this possible and, if so, how?
I have an InfoPath form that starts a workflow (on item created). The business requirement is that after submission form must be read-only (no changes to the initial request can be made). However workflow must change certain properties of the form (e.g. approval time, approval phase etc.). By default SharePoint workflows run under initiator account, however I am wondering would you recommend creating an event handler that is going to kick start a workflow under system account. Workflow would than be able to revoke all the contribute privileges but still be able to update the form during
I need to change the tooltips in an infopath form using the code behind. How should I do that?
A client is asking for a custom application to be created and deployed within the corporate intranet. Part of the requirements are to publish some of the content also available on the internet site. Both sites are built on SharePoint 2007 but they are on different farms and on different networks. Can the Content Deployment API (and associated tools) handle moving selected content across networks with no direct connectivity? Can we use web services? Has anybody done this sort of thing? If so what approaches have you taken? Thanks, James.
We have a SharePoint 2007 deployment which will have a substantially large document library. My client wants the ability to export this library to an Excel spreadsheet, but specifically wants... to Spreadsheet, but it does not appear to support automated subdivision of the list items into separate worksheets. I do not know if Excel Services that come with MOSS are capable of it, but we do not have MOSS so we cannot consider it an option for now. EDIT It seems that by mentioning "out-of-the-box", I am implying that I'd prefer something quick and simple. Let's dispel that. I do a lot
In our SharePoint solution we need a service which can search and index XML files. At this moment we are using FAST, but are there other tools / applications / solutions which are free and easy to integrate / customize within SharePoint 2007 ?
Below options are available under "Manage Farm-Level Search Settings" in Central Administration Connection time (in seconds): 60 Request acknowledgement time (in seconds): 60 I would like to know that how it affects the SharePoint Performance ? Let's say, what will be the consequences if we set 90 instead of the default value 60. Help me with your thoughts ?
Is the 'Flagging' (like we have in MS Outlook) feature available for WSS 3.0?
