SharePoint Portal Area - Tasks Webpart Issue with the Assigned

  Asked By: Katie    Date: Sep 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1245

If you specify individuals when you grant access to the Web, they will
show up. If you use AD groups or cross-site groups, only after the users
visit will they show up.

You can understand why Microsoft did this. Since a group could
potentially have tens of thousands of people in it, it would be unwise
to put anyone that wasn't interested enough in the list they would be
listed in to have visited the Web. So, only people that are explicitly
listed as having access and people that have actively visited the Web
are listed in the Assigned To field of any Tasks list, Issues list, or
any other list with a lookup column associated with the Web users.

Hope this sheds some light on why (just my educated guess) this works
like it does.
