The first in a series of articles, this discusses PSSDiag, which if you ever call MS for support with SQL Server it is one of the first things they will ask you to run. So a very useful tool to be familiar with it, and useful to keep regular benchmarks with too. Spotted over at Michael Rys' blog.

Not sure about other people, but I find it quite time consuming when trying to manage users inside of Windows SharePoint Services sites, especially when the sites in the hierarchy have their security inheritance broken. A number of customers end up breaking security inheritance at every opportunity and then hit this problem.

So, I am in the process of writing a SharePoint User Manager Windows Application in order to help out in this area!

Below is a screenshot of the utility to-date (Note: This is version X1.0 and as such has restricted functionality)

Writing Windows SharePoint Services Server-Side controls

Writing Windows SharePoint Services Server-Side controls
Overview

This post tries to describe the process of writing a .NET server-side control for Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services
There are a number of ways to write add-in code for SharePoint Technologies, the most notable being web parts.
However, these do not always help in the customisation of a site. Sometimes, we need to be able to change the
SharePoint look'n'feel and web parts do not integrate seamlessly in an area we want to control.. If we consider that
SharePoint is an ASP.NET application, we are able to use other .NET techniques to deliver the look and customisation we want.

One of those methods is via compiled controls. Most commonly used would be user controls but we can also write

server controlsn Mini-Navigator
In this post, I will be describing how I wrote a server control that I call a Mini-Navigator. See below: ...

HowTo: Display a different image inside a data view web part based on data in the XML

HowTo: Display a different image inside a data view web part based on data in the XML
I have a Data View Web Part that displays the status of several different servers I maintain. Basically, I am using a SharePoint list. The List has a Title field which contains the name of each server and a multiple choice field that lets me set the status to "UP," "DOWN," or "CAUTION."

For each of these three statuses, I have a little gif image of a green arrow, red arrow and yellow circle respectively. What I want to do is create a data view that has the name of the server and displays the arrow based on the what the status is.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;826231

Lorsque les utilisateurs visitent un site SharePoint, les fichiers temporaires sont conservés sur le disque dur du serveur Web. Au fil du temps, ces fichiers temporaires occupent de plus en plus d'espace disque sur le serveur. À terme, ce phénomène aura une incidence sur les performances du serveur. Ce correctif empêche les fichiers temporaires de s'accumuler sur le serveur et d'altérer ses performances.
Pour résoudre ce problème sur .NET Framework version 1.1, vous devez appliquer ce correctif. Ce correctif protégera les sociétés et les administrateurs exécutant des serveurs SharePoint conjointement à Office 2003 de cet inconvénient.

New Microsoft Office Servers on the Way

New Microsoft Office Servers on the Way
Office 12 is the code name for the next major version of Microsoft's Office System client and server products. Microsoft has not released a public delivery date for Office 12, but most company watchers are expecting it to ship in the 2006+ "Longhorn wave" timeframe. Microsoft has said Office 12 won't be tied to Longhorn, however. Office 12 products also are expected to run on older versions of Windows, most likely Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Microsoft already offers a handful of server products under its Office System umbrella. Its current Office Servers are Content Management Server, its Web-publishing product; Exchange Server, its e-mail server; Live Communications Server, its enterprise instant-messaging product; Project Server, Microsoft's project-management offering; and SharePoint Portal Server, its team-collaboration product.

Microsoft corporate vice president Kurt DelBene oversees these products in his role as head of the Microsoft Office Server Group.

It's unclear what new features and functionality might be part of an Excel Server product. But Visio product manager Jason Bunge told Microsoft Watch last year that company officials were contemplating building a Visio Server, a la Microsoft Project Server. Bunge said such a move might be accompanied by a formal repositioning of Visio, in an attempt to officially rechristen the product as more of a "corporate intelligence" tool, than a traditional charting/diagramming one.

Microsoft declined to discuss Office 12 in any way. When asked about plans to expand its Office family, a spokeswoman issued the following statement: "Today we're focused on working hard with partners to deliver the great productivity enhancements in Microsoft Office 2003 and the existing products in the Microsoft Office System. At this point it's a little premature to speculate about what might or might not be in future versions of the Office System."

But according to sources, it's unlikely that Microsoft will position its new Excel Server or Visio Server products as part of a thin-client solution, obviating the need to run Excel or Visio on the desktop. Instead, sources said, Microsoft is expected to play up the benefits of running Excel or Visio on both the client and server, emphasizing the new collaboration possibilities such "smart client" scenarios would create.

Microsoft already is embarking on a similar "better together" strategy with the next generation of its Visual Studio tools products. When it delivers by mid-2005 its Visual Studio 2005 desktop tool suite, Microsoft also will debut the first server product from its developer division: Visual Studio 2005 Team System. Microsoft is emphasizing that these client and server Visual Studio SKUs are meant to be used together.

Outline for presentation to the MS SharePoint and CMS development teams

Outline for presentation to the MS SharePoint and CMS development teams
Here's my draft outline for the presentation that I plan on giving to the MS SharePoint and CMS development teams on Monday. Questions, comments or suggestions? I'll post a recap of the presentation next week.

Business Case

Consistent message

"Coolness" factor

Localized administration

Implemented locally

Why SPS?

Project was initially attempted in CMS

Events, News, Image Libraries, etc

Site Provisioning

Light work flow

WSS Object Model

Custom Templates

Development of custom lists

Ghosted pages that are locked down

Difficult without a CAML Editor

Schema validation for ONET/Schema files

Better use of base types for lists (ie IMGLIB)

Theme Management

Dramatic page changes

Color changes specific to a theme

Content remains the same

Power of ghosted pages

Extending Site Definitions for existing sites (adding pages)

Sharing common resources (pages and list files)

Externalize Control HTML

Views vs Server Controls

Provide multiple views for a specific control

DEMO

WSS Search

Redirect from DispForm.aspx

Redirect from AllItems.aspx

Syndicated Content

Make SearchResults.aspx themed

Unable to ghost SearchResults.aspx

Administration

Prevent access to certain pages / features

User that is responsible for a site isn’t the SiteOwner

List level access

Suspend Impersonation saves the day

CustomJSUrl is a great

Permissions vs. Feature access

Site property management

Don’t show options that aren’t permitted

DEMO

In Line Edit – ala CMS

Edit changes within the display page

Preview content changes

Access consistent toolbar with CSS styles

Friendly Data Input Fields

Created Url Selector

Created Picture Selector

Text box for Url entry difficult for some users

Syndicated Content

Centrally managed content

Available to all sites

Cannot be edited locally

Needs to be dynamic

Allow for multiple options

DEMO

Site Creation

Sites have to be complete

Pre populate lists (Events, News, etc)

Custom NAnt tasks for post create process

Public facing ("friendly") Url

ExecuteUrl didn’t work from SelfServiceCreate

DEMO

Data Access Layer

Didn’t work directly with SPLists

Created container objects for OO approach to list and list access

Create SPListUtility class

Test Harness for Lists

Why not implement DataSet approach?

Better error messages

Collection classes don’t seem to follow best practices

DEMO

Development Environment

VPC – Slower but absolutely essential

NAnt scripts for developer efficiency

Giving developers Admin rights was problematic

Continuous Integration

CruiseControl.NET

SPS environment on build server

Smoke Test Site Templates

Great for ONET/module changes

Promotion

NAnt scripts for promoting templates and code

NAnt tasks for automating site creation for testing

DEMO

Opportunities

Events on lists (Delegates)

Lack of content management

Image upload

Picture size and quality

Lack of object model for recurring events

Can’t evaluate recurrence patterns

Case sensitive url’s when used as keys

Project Quotes

"This is great. Can you make it work like CMS?"

"I think I hosed the ONET."

"You haven’t done anything that breaks our warranty have you?"

"This is completely upgradeable, right?"

"Why does it tease me with options I can’t complete?"

"Is this SharePoint or CMS?"

This.EOF

Extend Microsoft Office and Windows SharePoint with Advanced Publishing Power!

Hyper.Net, the content accelerator for the Microsoft .Net infrastructure, offers tight integration with Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001/2003, Windows Sharepoint Services and Microsoft Content Management Server 2002. The integration allows companies to quickly transform oceans of Office documents managed in SharePoint directly into fine-grained hypertext web content. This removes solution limitations created by the “posted document” and “lump of HTML” approaches that are obstacles to creating more advanced business solutions.
By removing these limitations, companies can leverage SharePoint Portal Server as the foundation for creating a variety of advanced business solutions. New possibilities include Quality Management, Policy & Procedure, and Regulatory Compliance solutions, and integration with any new or existing Web site that has complex, content-intensive or high-quality content requirements.
That means you can quickly implement powerful solutions for your enterprise that leverage the latest web standards, including XML and web services, syndication and personalization. Without the project time typically wasted struggling with posted documents, without the complexity of integrating with your content store, and without running a marathon.
The combined solution is based on leading standard software products, providing advanced document/-content management, content xml automation capabilities and integration to MS Office.

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.
By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page."

Eric's Big List Of SharePoint Links

Eric's Big List Of SharePoint Links
Eric's Big List Of SharePoint Links
I am an unabashed pack rat and organizer. These traits come in very handy when you work with computers and software, because you need those skills to manage the phenomenal amount of information at our disposal. Coupled with some pugnacious researching, I've managed to accumulate a fairly large repository of URLs to valuable SharePoint resources.

So, inspired by similar lists (Lamont Harrington's SharePoint 2003 Overview and Eli's SharePoint Resources), here are mine. You can also download the zipped .htm file for importing into IE.

Enjoy!

Note: this list was built from an IE export; links at the root folder level are listed last after any sub-folders, so sometimes the parent folder might be misleading. Also, I'm not going to bother fixing some of the other oddities from my paste job, like the crazy italics because of indented sections...

Enhance SharePoint Search
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ROI of Enterprise Search By Martin Muldoon on 7/20/2004


The ROI on Enterprise search is huge for a simple reason. It provides employees with the two most important resources needed for productivity - information and time.

Several excellent studies have been conducted in this area. The one that I find most impressive was an analysis conducted by Sue Feldman of IDC back in 2001called the High Cost of Not Finding Information (pdf). The study cited three contributing factors to ROI:

A credit for the time that an employee would have wasted fruitlessly searching for information.

A credit for the time saved by not re-inventing the wheel.
A credit for the impact of the poor decision that would have been made as a result of having bad information or perhaps none at all.
I would however recommend to anyone looking to justify an Enterprise Portal and Search investment to Executive or Middle Management not over-emphasize such ROI analyses.

Scene7® for Microsoft® Office SharePoint™ Wins 2004 People's Choice Award for Best Imaging Software

http://www.scene7.com/news/2004/20040601.asp

Novato, CA — June 1, 2004 — Scene7, the leading provider of dynamic imaging software, today announced that Scene7 for Microsoft Office SharePoint 2003 has won the People's Choice Award for Best Imaging software for SharePoint from MSD2D, the leading independent resource for Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and .NET developers. Scene7 for Microsoft Office SharePoint 2003 is a cost-effective image management solution for corporations using Microsoft Office 2003 Editions. The dynamic imaging integration increases business efficiency, accelerates time-to-market, and lowers costs associated with digital media production, management and storage.

Scene7 for SharePoint 2003 extends Microsoft Office 2003 Edition’s collaborative experience with brand management and image automation. The resulting image management solution allows corporations to maintain revision control for a single high-quality image asset, create derivatives on demand, and deliver consistent branding for the Web, print, wireless and Microsoft Office 2003 applications. By combining Scene7’s dynamic imaging capabilities with SharePoint Products and Technologies, enterprises can utilize a single, browser-based IT platform to manage all of their documents and images. Scene7 for SharePoint 2003 allows information workers and remote business partners to locate, modify, collaborate, manage and deploy corporate approved media assets directly from within the Microsoft Office environment.

"We are proud to win this award from the leading Microsoft developer community at MSD2D," said Tim Bigoness, Director of Marketing for Scene7. “The combination of SharePoint as a collaboration platform and our dynamic imaging capabilities creates a powerful, yet cost-effective image management solution for virtually any business.”

About 2003 MSD2D People's Choice Awards
The Third Annual People's Choice Awards recognizes the best products and companies in the SharePoint industry. Awards offered by other media companies that are supposed to honor the best products in our industry are often said to be awarded to the biggest advertisers. We have even seen competitors offer contests named similar to our People’s Choice awards only to give awards to big advertisers. For the MSD2D awards, we feel that the only relevant vote is from the actual users. This makes the People's Choice award a far more coveted trophy. For a complete list of all the award winners, plus information on SharePoint, Exchange, Security and .NET, please go to www.msd2d.com.
