New Item button in Task list

  Asked By: Edward    Date: May 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4057

Let me start by saying, I am not a programmer and I am using SharePoint
2003. I have been charged with removing the New Item button in a task
list. I have been able to modify the page with the view that needs
modifying with FrontPage and creating a .dwt file. Problem is after
making the modification, I do not know what to do with the dwt file. How
do I get it to save back to the site?

I will also need to do this for the Show in Standard View button in the
data grid view. Any help is greatly appreciated.

If possible, you will want to do this with a HideCustomAction Feature.
Otherwise, you will want to modify  the Schema.xml file  for the task  list

Any other approach, especially using SharePoint Designer, will probably
cause you great sorrow in the long term. DWTs and SharePoint are not a
good mix. They were a FrontPage approach to what ASP.NET solved using
Mater Pages. I highly recommend against using DWTs.

One last thing, there are other places where people can create a new
task from:
1. from a list  View Web Part to the list placed on any Web Page (there
are summary and Full toolbars that they can use to create new tasks)
2. from the view  of any single Task list item

just to name two...
