Different Views for Customer page and Engineering Page

  • Different Views for Customer page and Engineering Page mouche

    I'm using an InfoPath form embedded in a webpart in a MOSS 2007 webpage. I'd like to have a Customer go to this page and see a certain view and not any of the others. After the form is submitted, the engineering team needs to be able to see the Team View, which has all the submitted information plus fields they will fill in.

    I have these two views, and the single Customer view shows up by itself in the webpage because I turned off the toolbar that has view selection. But, that means that the engineering team can't see the Team View when they go to the form library.

    My idea is to have a "Submitted_flag" variable and set this to FALSE. Then when the form is submitted, it will turn to TRUE. I'll have a button to switch to the Team View appear if the "Submitted_flag" variable is TRUE.

    Is this the easiest way to do this or should I approach the problem another way?

    Thanks for any advice you can provide.

  • Yes, you have the right idea. You can also switch views based on users or groups, so you could just set the form to automatically switch to the engineering view on form load when an engineer opens it. That eliminates an extra click.

  • I don't suppose there's a way to get an InfoPath task form to save it's state once it's submitted. In a workflow I don't delete the tasks, I just set them to complete. I don't pre populate much of the task forms as it's down to the user to complete the form. Some of the task forms are quite important and I'd like them to retain their entered fields after the workflow has moved on, or even completed itself.

  • happening. When I activate ContentTypes, the content type and field are deployed as expected into my site collection. When I activate Registration, the list is provisioned and the content type is added as expected. When I try to add a new item to the list, the list form only shows the Title field from Item. Now, here's the weird part. If I add a second content type to the list (through the UI), the list form suddenly works correctly. This makes me think there's something wrong with my content type. Here's what I'm working with. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent. <ContentType

  • I want to be able to create a list programmatically which allows end users to reorder the items in the list. There appear to be 2 steps to this. Firstly set the SPList.Ordered property to true - this bit seems easy enough. The second step would seem to be to set the default view's OrderedView to be true. Unfortunately this field is readonly. I see you can set this value if you provision through CAML but I want to be able to set this after the fact in code. Does anybody know how to do this?
