Tagging and SharePoint 2010

Tagging and SharePoint 2010

Sharepoint

As more people assign the same tags, tags become a way to navigate to similar content. The Tags and Notes group on the SharePoint 2010 Ribbon has two buttons that let you tag items. Tags are keywords that you assign to content.

Tagging pages to share with others is social bookmarking, and it’s very popular on the web.

The two buttons you can use to tag items are

  • The I Like It button is a single-click way to tag items you like; think of this as a recommendation, viewable to others.

  • The Tag & Notes button lets you type your own tag keywords, so you can mark content with terms that are meaningful to you. This button also lets you access the Note Board, which you can use to leave publicly viewable comments on a document or page.

Your company can add more buttons to the Ribbon that map to other specific tags.

The emphasis is on keyword in tagging. SharePoint doesn’t prevent you from typing longer tags, but you should use and train others to use, single words or very short phrases as tags. Otherwise, you defeat the purpose in using tagging as a fast, concise way to categorize information. If you need to make longer remarks, use the Note Board.

To tag content in SharePoint:

  1. Browse to the page you want to tag.

    To tag individual list items or documents, you must browse to the list or library and then click the row you want to tag.

  2. Locate the Tags and Notes group in the Ribbon to see your tagging options.

  3. To apply a predefined tag, click the I Like It button.

    SharePoint applies the tag to your content and briefly displays a notification confirming your tag.

  4. To apply your own tags, click the Tags and Notes button.

    The Tags and Notes Board window appears, populated with recent tags you’ve applied.

  5. In the My Tags box, click an existing tag and/or type the tags you want to apply to the content.

    Use a semicolon to separate tags.

  6. (Optional) To mark your tags as private so others can’t see them, select the Private check box.

  7. Click the Save button to save your tags.

    When you save your tag, it appears in the Suggested Tags section of the page. You can click any of the tags in this section to view the Tags Profile page.

  8. To add a note to the item, click the Note Board tab and type your note in the text box.

    Unlike tags, notes entered with the Note Board can’t be marked private and therefore are viewable by anyone else with the same access; choose your words carefully.

  9. Click the Post button to post the note.

    The note appears in the window along with any other notes that have been entered. You can scroll through all the posts entered for this content using the Next and Previous buttons.

  10. To close the window, click the X in the upper-right corner of the window.

Import Excel Spreadsheet to a SharePoint 2010 Custom List

Import data from Excel into SharePoint 2010. We have the following Excel containing usage data of different browsers over the months.

import

Go into SharePoint 2010 and select the option “More options…” under “Site actions”.

import2

This will open the create dialog of SharePoint 2010 which normally allows you to create content like sites, pages and lists. Look for something called “Import spreadsheet” and press the “Create” button.

import3

“Import spreadsheet” will create a custom list from an Excel data file. Give the custom list a name and use the browse functionality to select the earlier mentioned xlsx file. Click on the “Import” button to start the import.

import4

This will open Excel and let you select the range of cells to import into the custom list of SharePoint 2010. The first row in the Excel sheet will define the column names.

import5

When the “Import” button is clicked the Excel sheet is closed and the new custom list is opened in SharePoint 2010. As you can see the columns are based on the first row of the selected data. The data is not linked in any way back to Excel. So you will need to export it again to get linked data. The custom list is standard SharePoint and will allow you to do anything with this list what would be possible in SharePoint 2010.

“The specified file is not a valid spreadsheet or contains no data to import” Error When Importing an Excel Spreadsheet into SharePoint 2010

In Internet Explorer click Tools –> Internet Options.

Click Security –> Trusted Sites > Sites –> and add your site name.

Make sure to enter both the http and https form of the URL.

You’ll need to uncheck the box for “require sever verification”

SharePoint Permissions Overview

Permissions

Permissions (also called individual permissions or base permissions) grant a user the ability to perform specific actions, such as viewing pages, opening items, and creating subsites. However, unless you are going to add a custom permission level, you have little chance of dealing with these individual permissions (Figure 1).

Figure 1

Permission levels

Permission level is a collection of individual permissions that are bundled together to allow users to perform a set of related tasks.  One or more permission levels can be assigned to a user or group.

When we say grant permissions to users or groups, we actually mean grant permission levels to users or groups.  Don’t be confused by Grant Permissions (Figure 2) and Grant users permission directly (Figure 3) in the UI; again, permissions here all equal to permission levels.  For more information about each permission and permission level, see User permissions and permission levels (SharePoint Foundation 2010) and User permissions and permission levels (SharePoint Server 2010).

Figure 2

Figure 3

Fine-grained permissions

Site administrators control access to sites and site content by assigning permission levels to users or groups. Permission (level) assignment can happen at any level of a site hierarchy: top-level site, site, subsite, list or library, folder, item or document. If you are assigning permission (level) to a lower level as granular as a list or library, folder, or item or document, we call these permissions (level) fine-grained permissions. In some topics, fine-grained permissions are also referred to as “list-level permissions” or “item-level permissions”. For more information about fine-grained permission, download the white paper Best practices for using fine-grained permissions (SharePoint Products and Technologies).

Two factors

In addition to individual permissions, permission levels and fine-grained permissions, there are two key factors related to permission management: permission inheritance and group creation.

Permission inheritance

By default, all sites and content inherit permissions from the parent object above it, all the way up to the top-level site in the site collection (for example, a list item –> folder –> list –> site –> top-level site).  Therefore, if you do not break any permission inheritance within a site, the permissions are inherited and shared. However, it is not realistic that all sites and content share the same permissions. SharePoint provides mechanisms to break this inheritance at any site or content level and then to add custom permissions. Figure 4 shows the Inheritance group, whicah can be used to manage permission inheritance.

Figure 4

Note: For ease of management, arrange sites, subsites, lists and libraries so that they can share most of the permissions. Separate sensitive data into their own lists, libraries, or subsites and assign unique permissions there.

 

Group creation

A SharePoint group is a collection of users that can share the same permissions on a specific site or content. When you create a group, you always bundle a specific permission level to it. Afterwards, when you want to assign someone that specific permission level, simply add the user to the group.

Moreover, you can nest Active Directory groups (to be specific, security groups) in SharePoint groups, which makes permission management much easier. When users come or leave the company, you don’t have to manage individual users within the AD group; AD DS (Active Directory Domain Services) manages the users for you. This becomes obvious when you have multiple SharePoint groups that include AD groups. For more information about recommendations for using security groups, see Choose security groups (SharePoint Foundation 2010) and Choose security groups (SharePoint Server 2010).

Figure 5 shows the Grant group, which can be used to create SharePoint groups.

Figure 5

SharePoint groups are usually created at site collection level. If you create a group at a site level (which inherited permissions from its parent site), you cannot grant permission levels to the group directly at that site. Figure 6 shows the resulting message if you try to grant permissions to a group at the site where the group has been created. You can go to its parent site and grant permission level to the group there.

Figure 6

For more information about the three permission concepts and two permission management related factors, see Plan site permissions (SharePoint Foundation 2010) and Plan site permissions (SharePoint Server 2010).

Two new features

The permission features in SharePoint 2010 didn’t change much from SharePoint 2007. The following are two main new features I would like to introduce for SharePoint 2010.

Check permissions

Check permissions is a new feature available in SharePoint 2010.

By clicking the Check Permissions button (Figure 7), you can determine a user or group’s permissions on all site collection resources. You can find the user’s directly assigned permissions and the permissions assigned to any groups to which the user belongs (Figure 8).

Figure 7

Figure 8

Inheritance alert bar

Another new feature is the yellow alert bar that indicates the secured content that has unique permissions in a site (Figure 9). You can check that content by clicking the Show me uniquely secured content link. The alert bar also indicates the parent site from which you inherited permissions.

Figure 9

The following CSS reference guide highlights the major styles used in MOSS and WSS v3 sites. The guide is organized by area of the page and include the style name, function, CSS file name and approximate line number and a sample screenshot of the style location on the screen. Additionally, there is a “Copy to Clipboard” function that will copy the source code for the style to your client machine’s clipboard for use in your own CSS file. Use these guides to identify styles that can be overridden for your custom branding and installation or to quickly reference style name and CSS information for customization. Note, Copy to Clipboard ONLY WORKS in INTERNET EXPLORER. This functionality will not work in Firefox due to restrictions with the Firefox browser itself.

The default CSS files are located on the web server in the following directory: Local Drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES.

Additional styles are located in the Publishing feature: Local Drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\PublishingLayouts\en-us
