SharePoint and Outlook Integration – Enterprise Email Management

November 7, 2008

I was just roaming around the net when I came across this useful tutorial via Gee Videos.

Email management has become a high priority for all businesses, both large and small, with most written correspondence being delivered in email form. Businesses can use tools like SharePoint to manage most of their important business documents, but the inability to easily place emails into SharePoint and share those files within a document library is a problem that many SharePoint users have encountered. With myDocs you can now use Outlook to drag and drop emails directly into special folders that represent SharePoint document library folders. You can also view, open, create and access documents and emails directly within Outlook. With emails, documents and other files being accessible through Outlook, everyone in your workplace can use Outlook and SharePoint together to create a powerful yet simple document management tool. The ability to automatically move emails from Outlook into SharePoint and create document library folders from Outlook is a process that will energize your SharePoint 2007 workflows. myDocs leverages the familiarity of the Outlook interface and the powerful automated features of SharePoint. Metadata from emails such as Date Received, Date Sent, From and other fields are transferred automatically into a document librarys columns by simply dragging and dropping emails into Outlook folders. This makes it easier to filter and search for these emails and utilize the power of the SharePoint document library views. nSynergy specializes in email and document management using SharePoint 2003/2007. We developed myDocs to integrate SharePoint and Outlook and finally solve the problem of managing email within SharePoint. myDocs allows you to easily save emails and email fields into SharePoint document libraries both online and offline. View this demonstration to find out more about dragging and dropping emails into SharePoint and accessing your SharePoint document libraries without ever leaving Outlook. myDocs is fully compatible with SharePoint Portal Server 2003, Windows SharePoint Service 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

Why is it that I always mistype sharepoint with sharepoing. I’ve tried to explain it to myself but still have no clue, since it’s very unusual to mistake a letter “G” with the letter “L”. Then why am I typing sharepoing every now and then?

I decided to google for it and see if i’m the only one around who mistyped it this way. I was surprised that some people were already aware of it, and were mistyping their content on purpose to get all the sharepoing traffic.

Even a sharepoint mvp like Heather Solomon has atleast once mistyped her post title (Avoid “SharePoing of the Living Dead“) and I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s still not aware of that mistake.

Writting Sharepoing seems to be a common mistake for people working with or writing about sharepoint. But why? Do you have a clue? I even checked up the word sharepoing: But there has never been such a word in the english history. So why am I always tempted to write sharepoing?

How to find out which Sharepoint version you are using

November 4, 2008

Have you ever wondered which sharepoint version you are using? You might know that you are using, let’s say, MOSS 2007, but not sure about the installed version of MOSS 2007. Maybe you want to check if service packs were installed on sharepoint. Here’s the way to do it:

Go to Control Panel -> Add and Remove Programs. Select the product (sharepoint server) and then click: Click here for support

Now a window will pop up that displays your current sharepoint version.

Removing search scope dropdown in Sharepoint (MOSS 2007) using CSS

November 3, 2008

Personally, I don’t like the search scope dropdown in sharepoint (moss 2007). Most of the time It doesn’t fit to the looks of my customized sharepoint design. I think it makes my design look a bit ugly. If you have the same problem, here’s the most easiest and quickest way of removing it using css.

Open your core.css file and find this line: “” . This is the css class which is responsible for the search scope dropdown in MOSS 2007.

Now just add this line within the class..:


.. and you are done!

Note: If you don’t want to edit the core.css, you can also add the following line on any css file which will be loaded on the page  (or direct on the masterpage): { display:none; }

Tutorial: Sharepoint (MOSS 2007) with TinyMCE rich text editor

November 3, 2008
TinyMCE rich text editor

TinyMCE rich text editor

We’ve received a couple of requests from SharePoint (MOSS 2007) users, asking us to replace the default wiki editor. The rich text editor misses out a lot of fomatting features which are relevant for wiki sites.

Our first solution would be using the open source rte called tinymce in sharepoint. Tinymce is javascript based and quite powerful.

I was wondering if someone has ever replaced the default rich text editor with another editor. How did you do it? Has anyone used tinymce with sharepoint (moss 2007) before? I googled a lot  but didn’t find a good tutorial covering this topic. Are you aware of any? A step by step guide would really be appreciated.

Littering in Tempe? Better be a rapper!

December 7, 2006

Black rapper Arizona PoliceCity leaders have apologized after a program on Tempe’s cable channel showed a white police officer telling two black men they could get out of a littering ticket by performing a rap.

Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman and Police Chief Tom Ryff apologized for the show Thursday and suspended its future production after black community leaders voiced outrage and disappointment.

“I accept responsibility for the actions of my staff and apologize to any members of our community who have been offended,” Ryff said during a news conference Friday.

The segment appeared on “Tempe StreetBeat,” a program produced by police in the Phoenix suburb that followed several officers on patrol. It shows Sgt. Chuck Schoville pulling over two men in August in a mall parking lot.

He first asks for a name and ID from the driver and then asks the two men if they know how much the fine is for littering.

The officer then tells the men that they can avoid getting a littering ticket “if the two of you just do a little rap about — what do you want to do a rap about? Littering? About the dangers of littering.”

The two men agree, and each performs a short rap, laughing afterward. One says, “The dangers of littering, you will get a ticket. If you ain’t wit’ it, you better be experienced.”

The second man raps, “Yo, I just got pulled over ’cause I threw my trash out the window when they rolled over. They got behind me and pulled me over.”

Later, Schoville talks football with the men, one of whom agrees with his prediction that the Oakland Raiders will make it to the Super Bowl this year.

Schoville then says, “You know why you say I’m right? Because I got a gun and badge. I’m always right. That’s the way it works, right?” The three laugh and the two men get in their car.

Leaders of chapters of the
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Action Network expressed outrage and demanded that the city act.

The Rev. Jarrett Maupin of the National Action Network, who was at Friday’s news conference, said he had accepted Hallman’s and Ryff’s apologies and intends to make sure the police department makes good on a proposal for an African American advisory board and increased diversity training.

“It’s important for police officers to realize that black people do not speak hip hop,” Maupin said. “We’re not all rappers and thugs and gangbangers. We speak the English language and we’re entitled to the same amount of respect.”

Ryff said the department is investigating how the video got on the air, who watched it and who edited it. He wouldn’t discuss whether there would be any punishment for those involved.

The chief said that he hadn’t been able to contact Schoville, a 25-year veteran of the Tempe force, because the officer is on vacation. A message was left with the department seeking comment from the sergeant.

Because the men in the video were not cited, Tempe police had no record of their names.
