  Asked By: Gino    Date: Jan 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 599

I need to assoicate several documents with one task, I was thinking
instead of having several custom doc library list, this realy want help
me becuse it will list all documents. I need a way to have 6 document
folders with 1-n docs in each assoicated with one task, is there a way
to have folders as columns in a task list. What this will do is let me
associate one task record with several documents.

Instead of folders, I recommend using metadata. That way, for example,
you create call a new column as a lookup column that looks @ the task
list, at whatever pertinent field you would use to connect it to.

Therefore, the task  would be associated with several documents.

Then, you could create web part connections that display certain docs
depending on what task is selected.

Does that answer your question?

Sounds like a good idea, not sure what you mean about the metadata,
do you know of any good webcast or where i can get more info on this.

Just add a new columns  (fields) to a sharepoint  list. Just go to the
list, and click <Settings> and choose <Create Column>.
("fields" and "metadata" and "columns" are all the same thing)

Then, on your new column, for the column type, choose "Lookup", then
you'll be prompted to pick which list  on your site. Choose your
tasks list, and then choose the field in the task  list that you want
to connect to, such as the task title.

So let's say for each task  i have too have a Templates,Working
Docs,Archive,Review,Singed folders  each of which contains files that
need to be automatically populated or uploaded by a user. How would i
add those to a list  that would be assoicated with just on task.
