Advice on subdashboard

  Asked By: Samir    Date: Dec 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 927

I don't even know where to begin with this one. What I need to do is
make a sub dashboard that will pull info from the Documents folder,
but it needs to be formatted a certain way so I can't just use the
Categories within SPS. This is probably very simple for somebody who
understands SPS.

It needs to list the Folders within the Documents folder along with
the documents under each. For example:

Dental Forms
- Dental Benefits change form
- Dental Claim form

Medical Forms
- Medical Change form
- Medical Claim
- Prescription Claim form


FYI: All the forms are designated the same profile (Benefits form). I
was thinking of modifying the Categories subdash board?? This would
seem like the quickest thing to do but I'm not sure where I would
modify the formatting. What do you suggest?

If you are looking for a web part that will display the folder  structure
along with the documents, go to the following site
http://www.sharepointserver.com/webparts.html and download the SPS joust
menu version 1.3. This has been a very useful tool for me in displaying
the folder structure and also the nice thing  is that you can configure
it so that it opens the document for viewing in the same window but in
the right pane. I hope this helps.

Do you know if I can customize the look of this web part? I showed it
to my boss and she doesn't like the way it looks like a web tree. I
guess she wants it to be a straight list  format without the ability
to expand.
