  • How do you make a user a member for a SharePoint site? Lance Roberts

    I'm some kind of admin on my sharepoint site, but not the big kahuna who runs it all.

    I can add users and groups and set permissions within my site.

    What I can't figure out how to do is actually make a user a member, so that when they use the My Links dropdown, they'll be able to see the sites I run as one of the options (that arise from the My SharePoint Sites option).

    How do you make, and in fact even tell that a user is a member (in 2007)?

  • You have to setup the groups, and you have to add the user to the group that is setup as "Members of this Site".

    To setup the groups or to see what group is already setup for the "Members of this Site" group, go to people and groups, settings, then set up groups.

It's a pretty normal workflow which updates a property in another list based on a lookup. I have two users, call them Jane and John.

  • avoid one part of user administration?) and they will also define certain rights within my application. Problem? If I do write web parts (of whatever kind), how do I ensure that these same web parts are not used in other SharePoint sites as well? It would probably break the application and it could, of course, make it possible to replicate the same application but using different users. I thought of writing application pages (my application would be in _layouts folder as I understand it), which would make it possible to not reuse my application, but users and rights are assigned on site

  • When you activate Group Work Lists feature in a site you get the resources list and a few other lists. If you had the resources list to a page then you can see the list and you have to add each resource list to the page using the resources link. What I would like to do is have the resources already included on the page when a user visits the site. So if I have 3 Digital cameras, you can see the bookings for those cameras by defualt without having to add each one as a resource. Does anyone know how to do this? Does that clarify the situation any better? I will try and add screenshots

  • How can you change the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration site so that it works over SSL, rather than a random port over http? Other sites on the server may also use SSL, so would use a host... binding without defining an IP address... suggesting that wildcard ip's may work (and the same certificate used on different sites). Is it just a case of configuring the site in IIS as you would any other secure site, or do you also have to run 'stsadm' to tell SharePoint you have done this as well?

  • One of the users has updated his photo/picture on his My Site and it is showing the updated photo (on his My Site) as well as the picture property (user profile property) in SSP is updated with the new url (http://...). However, the new picture is not displaying in the other sharepoint web-applications. I have verified that the user has already contribute/uploaded a document into the document library in the site-collection. I even removed the user from the sharepoint member group and re-added the user using people picker window however still the result is same. I run the "stsadm -o sync
