  • Core improvements to ‘list’ architecture to support tracking

    • Version history for all SharePoint items

      • Shows changes to the item for each version

    • “Append-only” comment fields

    • Multi-valued lookup fields

    • Large list indexing support

    • Applications built on SharePoint lists get functionality for ‘free’.

  • Updated ‘Issue tracking’ template

  • Integration with Windows Workflow Foundation for approval or custom workflows

Demo tracking functionality l.jpg

Demo Tracking Functionality This can include tracking issues, tasks, contacts, documents, etc.


Example versions om l.jpg
Example Versions OM This can include tracking issues, tasks, contacts, documents, etc.

SPSite site = new SPSite("http://os.litwareinc.com/research/");

SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();

SPList list = web.Lists["Issues"];

SPListItemCollection items = list.Items;

foreach (SPListItem item in items)

{

foreach (SPListItemVersion version in item.Versions)

{

if (version["Priority"].ToString() == "(1) High")

label1.Text += "Version " + version.VersionLabel + " - " + item["Title"].ToString() + ": " + version["AssignedTo"].ToString() + "\n";

}

}


Email integration l.jpg
Email Integration This can include tracking issues, tasks, contacts, documents, etc.

  • SharePoint Lists can now receive e-mail

    • Discussion Boards, Calendars, Document Libraries, Announcements accept incoming email

      • Discussion boards maintain email threading and full HTML messages

      • Calendars process incoming iCals

      • Document libraries map attachments to documents

  • Extensible support for custom ‘e-mail handlers’

    • Custom lists can support email by writing a ‘handler

    • SharePoint handles routing of email, your code can map email data to list data


Example email handler l.jpg
Example Email Handler This can include tracking issues, tasks, contacts, documents, etc.

namespace TaskHandler

{

public class SimpleHandler:SPEmailEventReceiver

{

public override void EmailReceived(SPList list, Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPEmailMessage emailMessage, string receiverData)

{

SPListItem item = list.Items.Add();

item["Title"] = emailMessage.Headers["Subject"];

item["DueDate"] = System.DateTime.Parse(emailMessage.Headers["Date"]).AddDays(21);

item["Description"] = emailMessage.HtmlBody;

item.Update();

}

}

}


Distribution list support l.jpg
Distribution List Support This can include tracking issues, tasks, contacts, documents, etc.

  • SharePoint site groups can have an associated ‘distribution list’

  • Create a distribution list for members upon site creation

  • SharePoint sites will talk with directory services to create / manage distribution lists

    • Interface with directory service is pluggable through SharePoint directory management Web service interface

    • AD directory management Web service provided in SharePoint

    • Example: Plug into existing directory management tools – apply policy on allowed naming for distribution lists


Outlook and synchronization apis l.jpg

  • Outlook allows user to work with personal and team data in one place

    • Read/Write access to SharePoint datatypes

      • Calendar, tasks, contacts, discussions, and documents

    • Synchronization for offline support

  • Change Log APIs optimized for synchronization

    • GetListItemChangesSinceToken – Web service method that returns list of items that changed (adds, updates, deletes, etc)
