Working Offline with Risks & Issues

  Asked By: Camille    Date: May 01    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1757

I'm loading project risks on to my sharepoint site and would really like the
project managers to be able to update the status of these risk when they are
offline (travelling around).

I know that you can check a document out, update it offline and check it
back in and while it's checked out no one else can update it. But is this
possible for a risk?

I'm assuming your risk  list is in a document  library. If yes, then if
someone checks out that document, others can view and take a copy of the
document but they cannot over-write the the SP copy with their copy.
Otherwise, there is no point to check-out.

If you are doing your risk list as a List (how I would do it), then to
do offline  changes requries something which can synchronise offline
changes. AFAIK, SharePoint does not do that out of the box, but I use
Colligo (a 3rd party tool) to allow me to work offline while travelling
to update project  Risk Lists.

Colligo is a great option. Alternatively, you may consider upgrading to
Sharepoint 2010 - Sharepoint Workspace will allow you to take your lists
