I have a Business Data Connectivity (BDC) functionality that is working properly. Each of my tables has a quick link that associates to their intended table in the database. When the user clicks on New Item the form pops up as expected, but I would like to include a drop down list of who should this item be associated with.
For example, I have a quick link of Phone Numbers when the user clicks the New Item button they can enter in the information, but so far they have to use the UserID (primary key from different table) to associate the data. They manually enter in the UserID number that they have to memorize from the User quick link.
Is it possible that I can modify the New Item form to include a drop down list of all UserIDs and have the user select who should this data be associated with? Rather than a number? Maybe query this information from my external database and put all the info into that drop down. Possible?
Someone please point me to some documentation that I can experiment with.
I`m trying to make external content type in sharepoint designer 2013 using wcf but this what happened Cannot connect to business data connectivity Metadata .
my WCF calling another web service getting data from it ,this is beacause I`m trying to do search on data that exist on other system .
Thanks Clark,What I did to solve this issue is I made BDC using visual studio ,adding external content type from Odata service and get the BDC from wsp file and import it in BCS at central admin , I still believe that sharepoint designer still limited even in 2013
Well, no, we don't use SharePoint as a timesheet, cause we got a projectmanagementsystem for that. But SharePoint is used for displaying informations from that and other systems.
I could imagine to create a infopath formular so that daily work could be filled in. One formular per teammember and day.
Another way could be to build a WebPart for creating one list element per each entry typed in the WebPart.
Or you could create a application-page in VS.Net instead of a Webpart and create the listentries from that.
Well I'm not in SP 2007, but I would ask you some questions, to get a better idea of your aim.
What do you mean with "automatic upload"? Is there a central storage to upload from or is there a local storage for every user?
Is there be a upload-directory where the documents are placed to be uploaded? Well in SP 2010 you can do the automatic upload with SharePoint Workspace, an additional tool from Microsoft.
If you want to implement a upload-routine on your own, you could implement a tool with C# that pushes the documents in a library.
You could also use the SharePoint Webservices.
Hi everybody hope that you are well , i have a question related to infopath forms
you know that while creating blank form or whatever it asks you to enter the server url
so if i have created 100 forms for example and they are working on the local one
if i want to deploy it now ? what can i do ?
i think it will be difficult to change the server url for every form
is there anything can be written on xml or something which can ease this process
Thanks : )

Okay, I'm trying to debug a site and i can't log into it. Everytime I press F5 and let the debugger run I can't log into the site. Now, I can log into the site any other time, but I just can't when I'm debugging. Any ideas why?
Can't you log in or aren't you able to access?
Once I had the problem, that I couldn't access while debugging. There was a error in my solutions that wasn't displayed but VS.Net. I think it was a administrative error. I had to change some websiteoptions to get it work again.
Actually found the resolution and forgot to post it here. Anyway, it was the loopback check issue. It's a known issue from Microsoft, but apparently there is an update that has gone out and set a loopback check in the registry, which made the server keep checking the credentials whenever you tried logging into a site on it.
I'll try to find the actual registry fix and post it here, but if you Google loopback check you should find the fix as well.
Ah yes! Ok, I use the solution for disabling the loopback check, as I wrote it in my Installation Guide for SP. But as I always turn it off, I never faced the problem yet.
So, yes! I learned something.
<pre lang="sql">I have to create a Leave approval workflow where User submit leave request 1) Which goes to manager at the same time it get updated in Calendar and also both manager and user received email.
2)When manager approved or reject the request. User should get email whether it reject or approved and also Leave request should get deleted from Calendar
If any one could jst tell me regarding simple workflow of approval and rejection will also do.</pre>
First you should tell us a little bit more about the system you use:
Should it be a solutions, a workflow with SharePoint Designer or do you use a third party tool like nintex?
If you use SharePoint Designer you could draw your workflow with Visio Premium. Just start a SharePoint workflow. You can use the SharePoint-Components for creating or deleting items (such as calendar entries), create tasks and add or remove rights, depending on a state or values.
It's very easy. Same for nintex.
Best: Always start by drawing the Workflow as Diagramm (UML for example or Visio SharePoint Workflow).
