Logged in Users Webpart

  Asked By: Travon    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2309

I want to have a webpart which shows a list of all the users currently
logged-in into my site. Is there any webpart already available for
this ? If not, any pointers on how to achieve this?

I have tried searching and found out that "Members Webpart" is
something which can help me. But I want to have a list of those users
who are currently using my site. If they have closed the website,
their entry should be removed from that list.

we developed one custom webpart  that will show current online users(from
past 10 minutes).

We created webpart by parsing the IIS Log files, iis log files will
contain all the requests information(username,sitename,timestamp). When
ever you opened the webpart page, the code will run and get all the
online users  from last 10 minutes(this can be changed depend upon
requirement).

Might my idea will help  you.

I will try using this, but gradually, I want to
create a a webpart  wherein I can show all the users  in a list  who are using
that webpage and provide chatting functionality.
Is this possible?

If you wan this, I would propose that you deploy live comm….

 
Answer #4    Answered By: Gopal Jamakhandi     Answered On: Apr 02

What is this live comm and where can I find more information about it?
But I am rather interested in developing something by my own.

I don’t have ready url… But you should be able to find it easily on Microsoft site  or google. It is called Live Communication Server 2005 (LCS). Basically, it is an enterprise IM server, which your client can be Office Communicator, Windows Messenger, or MSN Messenger (last part I’m not  sure). If you mouse over the names in the member webpart, you will see a context menu… Additional items will be available if LCS is installed.

If your organization is not interested in secure corporate IM, you can use your normal MSN and the public IM network. But you need to use ur MSN email address in the portal.

If you think it is worth the trouble to develop, go ahead… :) I personally don’t see the value in it… but it’s my 2cents worth.

We discussed about this earlier, Heather and other MVP's suggested LCS for people presence. Please do let us know if this is possible using SharePoint OM.( in an easy way, without using MSN Active-X).

The closest chat functionality you can do with respect to SharePoint OM is those webbased chat system from ancient time, where you use a list  to hold what the users  are typing, and develop your own webpart  to insert the list items, and generate a chat view.

If you wan to use msn, there isn’t any easy way either...

 
Answer #8    Answered By: Alexis Ellis     Answered On: Apr 02

Sorry, didn’t complete my sentence… with or without SharePoint OM, there is no easy way to use msn activex

 
Answer #9    Answered By: Percy Beach     Answered On: Apr 02

I'm saying with SharePoint OM but without MSN Active-x, is there a way?

Like I have said before,

Not completely real-time but you can just set values in say the website  property
bag on when a user visits. You would have to have a hidden web part or something
on the page to acknowledge this and update the property bag (or a SharePoint
list for that matter). Like I said, it's not  real-time as you can't do that on
the web without some kind of client interaction (ActiveX, LCS, etc.) but you can
get delayed time (the delay is up to you how often you update the information).
It's a poor mans implementation but generally how it's done on the web.

I havent digged into more details of
this requirement of mine. Also, I dont know much about LCS but I would
really like to go into its details and will post my queries or findings, if
any.

You could always use the chat client/features of Exchange 2000 Server if you really need it. I wrote an entire chapter on Chat for the Admin Companion for Exchange 2000 Server. One of the best chapters I’ve ever written and it was wasted on one of the most irrelevant technologies ever included in a Microsoft product.
