4 ways to create Drop down navigation in SharePoint - SharePoint Maven. Those using SharePoint to build company intranets know that one of the most common requirements of a successful intranet is having an easy, user friendly navigation that allows to quickly go from one site to another. Previously, I have published a blog post on SharePoint Navigation best practices. Clear, simplistic navigation is one of the fundamental techniques in successful user adoption. Today I want to explain in detail 4 unique ways on how to create drop down navigation in SharePoint as well as list pros and cons of each method.

Method 1: Use Quick Launch Out of the box, there are 2 menu types you can create. One is called Quick Launch and it appears on the left hand-side of the page, and the other is Top Link Bar, which appears on top of the page. To create drop down navigation in SharePoint using Quick Launch Pros: Simple to implementNo need to enable publishing features (will explain what this means in Method 3 section) Cons: Method 2: Use Top Navigation Bar Drag and drop feature. How to Populate a SharePoint Contact Library from an Outlook Address Book. By David Charron on May 15, 2014 As a Project Manager, I manage a lot of SharePoint subsites on a daily basis. In fact, I usually create a subsite for every new project. Each subsite includes a contact library that lets me share the contact information of team members.

Creating contacts manually through the SharePoint interface for each individual subsite would be a time-consuming process, so I came up with the following procedure to quickly populate my contact libraries from my Outlook address book. I thought I would share this procedure to help others better organize their own team member information in SharePoint. Before we begin, let me point out that the following screenshots have been taken in SharePoint 2010 and Outlook 2010. 1. Click to enlarge 2. 3. Click to enlarge. 4. 5. Voila! From now on, these contacts will be visible in your SharePoint library. This process has made it a lot easier for me to manage my team site and simplify the team communication process. Add Images to a List Web Part in SharePoint 2010. SharePoint Tips & Tricks Add Images to a List Web Part in SharePoint 2010 May 7, 2014 I was recently working on a request to have Images appear in the announcements Web Part for SharePoint 2010.

At first, I figured this was a simple enough task – just add an image to the page, right? Well, I fell down the rabbit hole looking for the best way to manage this. Adding an image to the page worked, but it was ugly and not user friendly for managing multiple announcements. Searching online for a solution came back with similar recommendations to what I had already tried or to just write custom code. I didn’t want this to be labor intensive (I never do!) Prerequisites: Having a Picture Library configured makes this process much easier.Create a list you want this apply to or edit an existing list.Full control of the page you are editing.A few minutes to work on it. The Process of Adding Images to a List Web Part: Go to the List Settings for your announcements that you would like to add an image to.

Trick the Sharepoint Query String (URL) | Abstract Spaces. May 5, 2008 at 7:38 PM (SharePoint) Tags: SharePoint Adding some parameters in the URL i.e. QuerySting gives some bonus , specially for the pages where “EditPage” is not available from Site Settings. It Even works if there is no SiteSettings assigned to user( Should we take it as BIG security BUG ? ) For example there is no “Edit Page” Option available in any of lists “NewFrom.aspx”. so there is no other way then to go in sharepoint designer and then edit the page. But this way is more easier, as to just trick the URL and you will have NewForm.aspx in Edit Mode in Browser. !!!!!! The possible parameters with values are : Different combinations of this parameters gives some time saving benefit of editing the same page in designer. So for example, say you wanted to edit the Shared view of the default page:default.aspx?

Content Editor Web Part. In my earlier post, I showed how to add script into a page using the CEWP in SharePoint 2007. In this post, I’ll do the same for SharePoint 2010, though in SharePoint 2010 there are other options as well. It’s worth repeating the intro to the 2007 post: This one may seem so obvious as to not merit a post or two, but I get questions on it often enough and I realized that if I had posts to refer to, it’d be helpful. I don’t see the CEWP as evil like many people do, though using it can certainly can cause you problems if you use it unwisely. (I generally agree with Andrew about using it on Publishing pages, where script in the CEWP can wreak true havoc.)

Assuming you know what you are doing, here are the steps to add script into a CEWP in SharePoint 2007. The basic idea is the same in SharePoint 2010, however because things have moved into the ribbon the steps are a little different. Instead, we need to turn to the ribbon. Next, look up at the ribbon.

SharePoint Connecting metadata in office documents to SharePoint library columns. In SharePoint it is possible to use content types in document libraries. The advantage is, that you can define content types which have specific properties. A contract has different properties as a proposal. So therefore you create a content type and define the specific columns (metadata). The cool point is, if you are using content types which are from type document, you can also define a word template or other document templates. So you can create a nice word template with header and logo and now the cool part. It can also reference the metadata from content type into the word document. But what do you have to do to set this up? Step 1: Create a content type Go to site settings – content types and click on create new site content type.
