Drop down for Task listing

Hi,


 


I added a task listing to my SPS 2003. When I’m going to assign a task to a user the drop down to assign task to a site user is empty. I noticed that if I log in to the site and then go to the task, then that user name will be added to the drop down. Is there any other way to populate the drop down? This is a very difficult and time consuming effort to populate the drop down.


 


Thanks,


 


Bob

The use who logged in can be counted in the dropdow list popualtion, you can also add the users via Manager Users action as the reader/contributor to the task list. then the users will be also puplated there.

Ted,


 


My tasks list is under an area and on SharePoint portal server and not part of WSS. If I create a WSS site, then by adding users to the site as you mentioned they will add to the drop down as well. However, If you create a sub area under your portal server and then add a task to it, the drop doen will not get populated with the user having access to


this area. You need to log in as individual user to this area and then the drop down will get populated.


 


Am I doing something wrong? is My portal server having problem or this


is by design.


 


Thnaks,


Bob

Ted,


 


I just found out that in my WSS site, if I add domain group users as part of users set up Vs. individual users then I do not get the drop down populated. The only time I get drop down populated correctly with my user names is when I add users by thier user names.


 


I also noticed if I have multiple areas on my portal site with different users accessing them (i.e. marketing groups for one area, and HR for another area) and add tasks to these areas the drop down for these taks are showing the same users ( providing users logged in in their own area and accessing their own tasks in hteir areas).


 


Is there a way to have tasks with specific drop down for each area?


 


Thanks,


 


Bob,

Until a user logs in for the first time into SharePoint, SharePoint does not create an individual user record. It was recommended by Cornelius J. van Dyk to send the URL of the site (or area) to all users and ask them to “register” for the application. Search the microsoft.public.sharepoint.windowsservices newgroup for “Assigning individual task users in WSS” as it is just as applicable in this situation.
