  • Blog Post: Getting support/help on SharePoint and InfoPath

    As 2006 rolls in, it seems like a good time to remind folks about support resources for SharePoint and InfoPath. Each month I get one to several emails requesting help with a specific problem -- as intriguing as some of those questions are, I just don't have time to research and answer them. So, if you...
  • Blog Post: InfoPath: Adding a button to switch between views

    The ability to have multiple views of information and multiple uses for forms is one of the great features of InfoPath. And yet, any person responsible for supporting the users working with the forms can tell you that it can be a real challenge to users to have to switch views via the menu system. However...
  • Blog Post: Cross-Site Groups in SharePoint

    There's a great article by Adam Macaulay on MSD2D about using Cross-Site groups to manage your SharePoint users . It's written from a CorasWorks perspective, but don't let thinking it's a promotional piece keep you from reading it -- it has lots of excellent information for the SharePoint administrator...
  • Blog Post: New SharePoint Magazine

    Wow, has it really been since September since I posted last? The weeks and months go by so fast!

Today I received notice of a new magazine...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Links Updated

    The SharePoint Links on the right nav of my blog have been updated. I've been remis, and there are lots of good bloggers out there.

  • Blog Post: InfoPath Question: Easy way to specify order of forms to be merged?

    I'm thinking that the answer to this question is “No” because of an article I found on MSDN that said InfoPath gets the list of forms that were selected in the Merge Forms dialog box. More than one form can be selected, and forms are processed in an arbitrary order. but does anyone...
  • Blog Post: Web Part Deployment Best Practices?

    In articles on MSDN that talk about creating basic web parts , they talk about deployment by importing a .DWT. However, there is also an article on “ Using Wppackager to Package and Deploy Web Parts for Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies ” along with the Wppackager download ....
  • Blog Post: Uploading multiple documents to WSS

    I recently answered a question in the WSS newsgroup about how to upload multiple documents to a SharePoint site.

    Jan Tielens and Fons Sonnemans , names you're very familiar with if you're a SharePoint Wonk like me, created a very cool SmartPart WebPart : The SmartPart is a generic webpart that can contain an ASP.NET user control. Nothing new you would say, but the SmartPart can give your user control access...

    I look away for just a moment, and when I look back, I see all these SharePoint posts on Amanda's blog! I've given you the category called “Microsoft Stuff” but as I've mentioned before, you really should be reading every post she makes -- she's just that good ;-) [Yeah, yeah, I know it...

    I just noticed that MikeFitz has posted a bunch of slide decks from the EMEA SharePoint Products and Technologies Developer Tour on GotDotNet.com.

  • Blog Post: A new box, on the way!

    Having our SharePoint intranet site hosted by our corporate IT department has lots of good points, and a few bad points. One of the frustrations for me has been the lack of administrative privilages on the box (which hosts many WSS sites besides ours.) Don't get me wrong, it's understandable, but still...
