Contact Web Part

  Asked By: Reginald    Date: Feb 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2111

We're tried using the contact web part with a Group By to collapse
the contact list. This works fine except that the Group By criteria
is included in the header (ie: Department: Finance). Our users want
to get rid of the "Department:" piece and just show the field value.

Since we couldn't figure that out, we are using the Data View (XSL)
to present the contact list. This works, except now the people
listed aren't clickable (to see details) even though we've selected
the Last Name with link field.

if u r using frontpage 2003 and this one is an XSLT Data View, then you should
be able to just delete "Department:". As for the hyperlink on the "Last Name"
right click on it the value you want choose "Format Item As > Hyperlink To >
Display Form". This should sort out ur problem

Thanks, on the XSLT data  view the Hyperlink worked, after I added the
ID field  to the data view.

Interesting that the contact  thing still doesn't work. Seems to be
only an option to add the Group Header w/Expand by default or
Collapse by default. The Group Header doesn't seem to have any way
to change the default from "Groupx: Detail" to just "Detail". E.g. I
want it to say:
+ Accounting (5)
+ Finance (10)
+ IT (5)

Instead of
+ Dept: Accounting (5)
+ Dept: Finance (10)
+ Dept: IT (5)

I initially was having the same thing happening as you with the group
expand or collapse in the XSLT view.

I have it doing as you want now and I think the solution was to choose
the HTML view  style = repeating form style (the 2nd one down). The
group heading is no longer in bold but it looks fine.

I'm using it for a FAQ page and so I only have one answer for each
question (the grouping column). I have also removed the number in
parentheses at the end of the group  heading because in my case it was
always (1).
