is there any way to create personal dashboards..

  Asked By: Marla    Date: Nov 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1297

I found pretty useful stuff in this groups.. hope i'will find some
solution for my problem

I'm newbie to SPS and our client has requriment that every portal
user should have personal dashboard.

so i found the solution something like:
1) Created a personal dashboard with the same as logged user name.
2) Created sub dashboard in the same newly created personal dashboard
with title "Back to home page".when user clicks on the "back to home
page" the user will redirected to the home page.
3) Coming back to portal home page ,again i created sub dashboard
title as "my custom page" and also a new webpart which redirects
him/her to his own personal dashboard when user clicks on "My custom

I know how to do it manually for individual user,but unfortunatly i
have more than 50 portal users!!just imagine creating personal
dashboards for all 50 users manually.......
So all the above said manual process i would like to do it
can we do that,if so pls suggest me some way to do that.

I have just uploaded some files to the files section of this group
for you. Contained in the zip file are directions, files, and
source code to accomplish what you are looking for.
I've installed this functionality on our setup and it works
fantastically. It even sets up the folder rights correctly,
allowing only the creator access to the personal  dashboard folder.
The directions are pretty good, and pretty thorough... but, it
definately helps to have a good net admin around to help out (unless
you already ARE a good net admin...)
