  • I present you the "User Profile related SharePoint Designer Activities". It's a solution package (.WSP file) that contains four SPD actions (workflow activities) for the SharePoint Designer workflows.

    The available actions are:

    Get user title – use it to get the user job title, when you need to route the workflow to different people depending on the originating user, for example.
    Find manager of the user – it retrieves the Manager property of the specified user profile. The most frequent use of this action would be to set an approval task for the manager of the user.
    Find display name of the user – it resolves the user display name instead of DOMAIN\username, useful if you combine text in task descriptions or in emails.
    Find department of the user – use it to route workflows depending on the originating user deparment or to check that the workflow can only be initiated by a specific department, for instance.

  • Managing permissions in SharePoint is a complex and often difficult to understand by end users. In addition, features for managing permissions on a site are splitted on several screens and must access on each item to finely manage the associated rights. When the site is important, it quickly becomes difficult to obtain an overview of permissions and each change creates a lot of work.

    This version works with MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0


    This tool aims to bring together on one screen, most of management capabilities of permissions for an entire site:
    – Overall display permissions for groups on the Sharepoint libraries and website pages
    – Adding, modifying, deleting permissions with a few clicks without having to go through a lot of screens
    – Export as an Excel table permissions
    – Copy permissions between lists and pages

    Supports metadata security for both Document Libraries and Lists.
    Allows permissions to be assigned to users or groups based on their Active Directory properties, so security can be based on user or group attributes such as department and position.
    Provides the ability to read user and group names from columns and populate them in item permissions, making it much easier to manage permissions for specific people or groups.
