    Hello,

    I have a question about sharepoint that I was wondering if you had any insight on.

    I have a list form that has two lookup fields on it, one is for buildings and one is for rooms. That information is coming from another list on the same sharepoint site (both columns on the same list).

    I am wondering if there is a way for me to put logic behind the room picklist so once a building is selected, only the rooms that are in that building will be populated in the room list?

    Please let me know if you have any ideas

    Thanks!

    Hi, I’m stumped!!

    I have a list in sharepoint that lists all of my jobs and respective customer information. I have records of the jobs stages (some are Done, some Active, etc…) and the dates for each.

    I need metrics data for company purposes that I’d like to get automatically generated – such as
    How many active jobs there are currently
    How many jobs were created this month
    How many jobs were created last month
    How many active jobs per city is there currently
    Etc..

    This should be easily accomplished with calculated columns, but I’m not sure how to do it. Should I make a new list? Should it be part of the same list?

    Please help! Thanks in advance!

    Hey Bryon!

    I am trying to do something with SharePoint that seems impossible because I CAN”T FIGURE OUT HOW.

    I want to make a list that does the following:

    1. Creates reoccurring (by day, week, month, and biannually) tasks
    2. Notifies users of due dates
    3. Emails users of upcoming task
    4. Deletes completed task after a period of time
    5. Displays upcoming tasks in a calendar view
    6. Displays completed tasks in a standard view (in a different list)
    7. Displays past due task (in red) on the front page

    so… is it impossible? Is that too much to ask?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

      KATERINE,

      You are not alone in being frustrated with the learning curve of SharePoint. Here is a brief answer to your questions:

      1. Creates reoccurring (by day, week, month, and biannually) tasks
      2. Notifies users of due dates
      3. Emails users of upcoming task
      4. Deletes completed task after a period of time
      Answer: Yes to all above, by making a workflow. you will have to be able to download and use sharepoint designer on the site and your out of luck if your company is using wss (free version of sharepoint)

      5. Displays upcoming tasks in a calendar view
      Answer: Yes, create aew view and select calendar view instead of standard view

      6. Displays completed tasks in a standard view (in a different list)
      Answer: Yes, workflow again

      7. Displays past due task (in red) on the front page
      Answer: Yes, this can be done with some javasript in an content editor web part. I will blog on how to do it this week.

    Hi Bryon, I’ve searched all over for this and I’m finding pieces, but lack the technical skill to fit them together. You seem to be the man to ask!

    I’m using a 2 column web parts page and need to change the zones or parts to a percentage based width so they’ll fit within various screen resolutions without a scroll bar. However, I don’t have access to edit the master CSS or sharepoint designer. I’ve seen enough post around the web which seem to indicate this could be done by using the right style code in a Content Editor Web Part, but darned if I can figure out how exactly.

    I’d love some help! Thanks either way!
