The fourth and most likely final (they take a lot of time to write) part of this workshop series tackles one of the most common questions that I run into with SharePoint developers.  The question revolves around creating, sending (via email), and handling tasks within SharePoint. 

In this workshop, I build on the "How-to" knowledge from the previous workshops, to build a custom ASP.NET Task Form (aka., TaskEditForm), create a "Custom Content Type" to hold my custom user data, and fire a document workflow-based task. 

It turns out that it's not that difficult to do, once you know what you're doing, and there lies the rub, it's hard to find good documentation on "How To" do it.  I hope that this workshop will help.

This series of workshops are filled with:

  • Step-by-Step "How to" examples
  • Screen shots of almost every step that I take (so that you'll never get lost :) )
  • Code (downloadable and shown in the document),
  • Comments in the code (rare to find those anymore these days :))
  • details about which options I chose (why and the alternative options)
  • References to books, blogs, webs sites that I used to learn how to do this
