HelpDesk Dashboard

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Jun 23    Category: MOSS    Views: 2118

I have a client that wanted to upgrade to SharePoint 2007, however,
they are currently using the Windows SharePoint Services Applications
Template: HelpDesk Dashboard within SharePoint 2003.

Does anyone know if these templates are going to be available for
SharePoint 2007? I know the download provide for SharePoint 2003 will
not work for SharePoint 2007 - I tried it.

Quoting from a recent message from Lawrence from Microsoft:

The "Thrilling 33" app templates for WSS v2 should continue to work when
a site created with any of the templates is upgraded to v3, but the
templates cannot be used directly on a V3 environment.

The "Fantastic 40" app templates for WSS v3 will be available in beta
form shortly after B2TR.

I haven't tried to upgrade  any of these app templates from v2 to v3. But
I'll bet it will be a harrowing experience. My understanding is that the
"Thrilling 33" were filled with unghosted pages.

I don't think I have ever "ported" an *.stp file from one version to
another. If I were going to port this functionality to SharePoint
2007, would I break the page apart into webparts and lists, then
port the webparts and recreate the lists in a test webpage within
the SharePoint 2007 environmnet? I could then save the test webpage
to a SharePoint 2007 *.stp page.

Does that sound like the right track?

I would start by just uploading the WSS v2 STP to WSS v3 and see if that

I tried that approach. That does not work. I have started trying
to take each list within the WSS v2 site and saving each as a list
template *.stp file. I am now trying to upload the list*.stp file
into a WSS v3 site.

I am not having much luck. I can't seem to find the uploaded list
template when I want to create the list on my WSS v3 site.

Can you send me the site STP file?

You upload a list template STP to the List Template gallery on the Site
Settings page then you create the list from the Create page.

I have sent the file to your mindsharp account since there is not an
