You can use either Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 or Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services to create a dashboard to display essential data for your users. In this example, you will learn how to use SharePoint Portal Server and Microsoft Office FrontPage to create a dashboard to display a chart of the top open opportunities and their projected revenue.
The first section explains how to create a SharePoint Portal Server page with an Office Web component (a PivotChart), connect it to the Microsoft CRM 3.0 database, and configure the PivotChart. The second section explains how to create a data view on the SharePoint site by using FrontPage. The final section explains how to replace the default Microsoft CRM 3.0 home page with your SharePoint Portal Server dashboard (go and see this web site http://www.mscrmguy.com/ This site is operated by John Straumann, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Technology Specialist, for the purpose of the site is to give our CRM partners access to CRM materials, demos, sample code, etc).

Windows Folder web part

This Windows Folder web part allows users to store files within a standard Windows (NTFS) folder in a shared network location and display a list of those files in a SharePoint page via a consistent ‘document library’-style interface. A new NTFS sub-folder is automatically created for each SharePoint site that is configured to display the Windows Folder web part, underneath a 'root' NTFS shared folder on a defined server. The NTFS security ACLs for each sub-folder are automatically synchronised to match the list of SharePoint users for the site, so the administrator experience is simply to "drag and drop" the web part. Works best if Kerberos authentication is used. Full documentation, source code and install files are included in the download. The web part is also discussed in the following blog article: http://blogs.msdn.com/grahamtyler/archive/2005/11/30/498132.aspx

SharePoint Design Tip: Condense those My Site Styles


So instead, utilize some CSS code to take this step out. Replace all of the code in OWSPERS.css with three Import tags:
@import url(ows.css);@import url(sps.css);@import url(menu.css);

This will import in all of the code from those three files, freeing you of multiple location updates and of one very, very long css file. From here you can add on any custom styles or changes for personal sites and manage it much easier.

The order of the @import tags is important, you want to keep SPS pulling after OWS. OWS is for portals and WSS sites, while SPS is only for portals and has some overriding attributes.
Great tip! :) no?

Move Site Settings to Modify Shared Page

End of last year I had a posting copying a good tip from Jim Duncan about moving the different administrative links in a WSS top level bar to the Modify Shared Page menu.

Today, I got the question again from one of our developers. The goal was to have a very very simple way of adding it to a SharePoint installation and have all the sites having that behaviour. So, after some investigation, I came up with the following. Do know that it is kind of a very quick thingie I have done here but maybe some people want to finish it and make it more generic and flexible :-).

Some of the fixes included with SP2 have been previously released as separate updates. This service pack combines them into one update. And read this : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887623

When you install the service pack, no user dialog box appears after the service pack is successfully installed.
•After you install the service pack, restart the server for the upgrade to complete successfully.
•The database schema is modified when you install the service pack. Therefore, any backups that were taken when the server was running the original release version of the following two programs cannot be restored to a server that has SharePoint Portal Server 2003 SP2 installed:
•Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003
•Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
•SharePoint Portal Server 2003 supports IBM Lotus Notes R6 only if you install SharePoint Portal Server 2003 SP2.

Unfortunately, this does not allow users to restore their own documents ... however it does make the process of recovering a document much simpler. This should significantly improve IT’s ability to meet SLAs or reduce them. Great for IT and great for users.”....

There have been some third party solutions that have helped with this issue :
Nintex SmartLibrary is a cost-effective solution that extends Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services to provide advanced document management features.
- a doc Smart Library from Nintex

- an article of Maxim V. Karpov and Eric Schoonover on
Add a Recycle Bin to Windows SharePoint Services for Easy Document Recovery
Because files deleted from WSS are not recoverable without lots of pain and administrator intervention, recycle bin functionality on the WSS document libraries is a welcome customization. This safety net is important to both portal users and administrators since trying to reload a portal backup for only a few documents is tedious and often results in the loss of more data than it saves.

The purpose of this template is to enable information office workers to self-restore documents that are incidentally deleted from a protected document library using the document library interface in the browser where the deletion occurred.

SharePoint Questionnaire

SharePoint Questionnaire: "The following is a list of questions we ask prospective SharePoint site owners in order to start requirements gathering and determining which product implementation will best suit their needs. The questions help determine if the user needs a portal, a WSS site, or a combination of the two. The questionnaire is preluded by a brief description of SPS and WSS describing key differences in purpose. For the most part these questions are general, but some have undertones to our unique SharePoint environment. We have two versions of our questionnaire, one is a protected formatted form in Word that is sent to the prospective site owner, the other is an answer guide to assist evaluating the questionnaire responses. The blue text below with each question represents the answer guide response to that question. "
