Resource web part that connects to AD

  Asked By: Geena    Date: May 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 930

Does anyone know of a web part for project resources that ties into
Active Directory? I would want to place it in a project site and be able
to select my resources from AD.

Sounds like you need Project Server. Setting up resource  pools like this is a
specialty of this product.

Surely I do not need an entire project  solution to be able to connect to

That depends on what you are trying to do. SharePoint is integrated
OOTB with AD, the response was to your multiple use of "project
resources and project  site" which seemed to indicate a project planning

Ok, I can understand that. But all I want to be able to do is create a
resource list and instead of having to type each person in, I want to be
able to choose from a list of AD users. Similar to a GAL in Exchange. I
want this to be portable outside of one particular site. In other words
I want it to be a portable web  part. I may not be articulating what I
want very well.

There is a "people picker" control which is somewhat GAL-like - it
should be available anywhere you get prompted for a user by lickcing on
the hourglass icon next for the form field.
