“Parking Lot” answers for SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint Designer 2007

25Sep09

 I have been teaching Mindsharp’s SharePoint Power End-User and Branding and Customizing SharePoint 2007 with SharePoint Designer for about 2 years now and every class has questions that are not covered in the course.  I have been keeping a document and passing it on to my students but, I have had numerous requests to post it on-line so I thought this would be a good place.  Thanks to all of my students, I have learned as much from you as you have from me!  Jen Dodd

Question: Can SharePoint version information be added to document footer?

Answer: Yes SharePoint Document Versioning
The Document Versioning Event Handler manages the Versioning of Office Documents which are stored in a Document Library under SharePoint Portal Server and Windows SharePoint Services.

The Features are: Showing the Document Version in a separate Column in the document Library and adding automatically the current Version Number of the Document to the Footer of the document. Works with SharePoint und Office Professional 2003.

See a Demo: SPS Document Versioning Event Handler

  1. Hi Jen,
    Thanks for mentioning my SharePoint Skinner. I did a new release of a far more sophisticated version a couple of weeks ago. You can read more about it here: http://www.elumenotion.com/Blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=94. If you find yourself updating this post, would you mind updating the link?

    Thanks!
    –Doug Ware
