I recently was working on a proof-of-concept where we wanted a team site to display on the default.aspx page some of the data that existed in an InfoPath form. This data needed to be seen by everyone without requiring them to open up the form file. We also wanted to make sure that if the…

Relationships between site directory, search, and WSS team sites

I was asked recently if there was a web part in SharePoint that would display all the team sites where the current user was a member. My immediate push back was what did it mean to be a member?

My first "complex" VSTO 2005 Project
