New to Sharepoint

  Asked By: Kristine    Date: Jan 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 593

I’ve just joined this organization, my first experience with an installed Sharepoint. My first (& last) experience was with the original product in the 2002 MS Technical Beta … which seems centuries ago now.

I joined the group and was going to come up to speed slowly until Friday when I told the CEO that Sharepoint could have secure groups with secured documents i.e Board Papers for Board Members. Me and my big mouth … he wants it NOW!

I wonder if someone would be so kind as to point me to the appropriate Help reading and perhaps a brief overview of where in the suite I need to be skill-building

The current version of SharePoint only allows permissions to be set at the document library level. You cannot set permissions at the document level. The next version of SharePoint, which should be out around the end of the year does offer this.

If you need any more specific help, let us know.

Or you could set up a meeting. Space and secure the board documents for that
meeting or you could set up a team site for the board and secure the documents
that way

Why I told someone it could be done was that I thought in the Beta for STS v1.0 that was one of the “features”. It sounds very much like a team site for the board is what I was thinking of. If this works easily, I will set one up for the Senior Management Team as well

I wanted to fix the query in a view of a list I created through a feature. How
can I update it without using GUI? The list is using my own custom content type.

The problem is I have a page that has a listviewwebpart and the listviewwebpart
is pointing to a hidden view. So I need to update this hidden view to correct
its query. This hidden view is just a copy of an existing view and I created it
to be able to have no toolbar in the webpart.

I found a code to use Sharepoint web services to update but I don't know how to
run it from visual studio.

If I understand you correctly, you just want to be able to modify a
hidden view, correct? If that's the case, why not just go to List Settings
(via the Settings menu in any default list view), scroll down to the Views
section, and pick it?

I figured it out by going to the list view webpart and click on the link that
says edit the current view. That did it. It is still pointing to the hidden

Answer #7    Answered By: Alexander Rocha     Answered On: Jan 20

but I checked that place and the hidden view is not
showing up there. The reason why I created this hidden view is because of the
limitation to remove the toolbar when using listviewwebpart thru a feature. The
real fast solution for me is to change the listviewwebpart to show the
non-hidden view copy.
