Upgrading 2003 to 2007 Portal - Features Missing

  Asked By: Raymundo    Date: Nov 06    Category: MOSS    Views: 907

I am getting ready to upgrade from 2003
Portal to 2007 Portal. The good news was we did not make any
customizations and used base Sharepoint (I know this for a fact, since I
was the only Admin and controlled all creation and modifications to our
2003 site the last 2 years, in preparations for our upgrade to 2007).
However, I recently learned through attending a 2007 class that a few
core features we relied on in 2003 are no longer there, or not user
friendly. I have outlined the features below and wondering how others
handled this within their upgrade. SubAreas
* We created many SubAreas to publish documents to certain interest
groups and departments. For example, we would have a SubArea that used
the "Group Listing" webpart, that allowed us to build out links and push
documentation to a "New Hire" SubArea, or a SubArea which focused on the
new release of our software. From what I can tell, the SubArea and
hierarchy you can do underneath no longer exists. I have included a
screenshot of what we have below.
* We are in the process of migrating our production site to a test
server, but I believe someone told me the SubAreas will convert to
Sites. Is this correct?
Group Listing Webpart
* I could not find the equilavent of a Group Listing Webpart in 2007.
We used that in several areas of the Portal to target information to
specific audiences. Maybe its called something else?
Submit to Portal Area from Document Library
* We could go to any document and select to submit a link for this
document to multiple areas of the Portal, as well as give it a
description, assign it a group, and apply an audience to it. It does not
seem that we have this functionality in 2007.

[->] [Reply] Check out the send to item in the context menu. Your
document library also has the configuration for one pre-defined send to
link.

This copies the document instead of creating a link to the document, but
it does maintain a link between the two documents that will prompt a
user to update the various copies when the source is updated. Don't know
if this will meet your needs or not. The destination document library
would control the availability of audience targeting and other metadata.
