Submitting to Portal - Problem

  Asked By: Carolyn    Date: Jul 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1542

When I select "Submit to Portal Area" on an item in a document
library, it looks like it is just creating a link to the item on the
SPS page. Therefore, when I delete the WSS site, the document is lost
because it only moves the link to the portal, not the document itself.
Is there a way to push a document up to a portal area, or am I doing
something wrong?

Creating a new Listing in one or more areas is what "Submit to Portal
Area" does. There are tools to help identify broken portal  Listings.

Ok, assume I am finished with my project and want delete  my WSS
site. I want to push  my documents up to an SPS area. What is the
best way to do this?

I've read that wss  sites are often just temporary workspaces and are
typically used for project collaboration. So what happens to all the
documentation for the project? We would like to push this up to an
area so other groups in IT can access the important stuff. We have a
document library in our area  for Final Documents. How does a
document go from WSS to this library on an Area?

Hopefully not 'navigate to wss site, save to desktop, navigate to
sps area, upload...' for each document.

You could use explorer view....

Switch to Explorer View, select  all of the docs/folders, right click,
copy, over to other library, switch to explorer view and paste.

IMO, documents do not belong in a portal  area. A portal is for locating
content, not storing it.

The lower in the hierarchy you go, the less time a Web will likely live.
However, there are some Webs that will never be deleted.

Moving documents from one Web to another is easiest from a Network Place
in Windows Explorer. I typically recommend that people put a Listing on
a portal area  to an entire document  library, not a given document.
