Fun with Announcements – 4 Parts
There is a new series that I’ve written, about fun things that you can do with an announcements list in SharePoint.
Part 1: Create a Publish Date functionality for Announcements
Part 2: Create Alerts Based On Announcement Categories
Part 3: Modify the default “Current View” of the announcements Web Parts
Part 4: Create a “More” link to view the details of each announcement
Enjoy, and happy sharepointing!
Hi Laura, Can we copy “Summary View” of announcement webpart in sharepoint 2010 ? Basically I added a column called “Area” to the Announcement webpart. Based on the “Area” I would like to display Summary view on different pages. I placed this webpart on Custom Page Layout (Inside a webpart zone). I was able to edit the summary view on diffrent pages with the filter “Area” but when I “Check In” the page, all the changes are lost and Webpart is displaying announcements in tabular/all items view with filter being applied ? Could you please help me with this ? Thanks
Andy, You’ll have to create your own custom view, such as in part 3. Use the “newsletter” style, and then your view will look like the summary view.
Thanks for the tip Laura.. You Rock .. It seems like we can not create a view which is exactly similar to Summary View, but we can come close. Also I can’t find any way to copy/replicate Summary View of announcements !
Andy, You’re right, there isn’t a way to do that.
