Search driven applications are applications which use the search service in order to provide data or do other stuff. They can be configured by using the availables search webparts or they can be developed by using visual studio and c# as well as XSL. So it depends what you prefer. There are many posts and instructions how to do it.
Today i would like to share an easy way to create a webpart which displays all sites to which i / the current user have access to. I use the search core result webpart and configure some things and got a nice result afterwards without programming anything.
Creating a list is normally not that difficult. But if you use the list in order to manage travel requests, vacation requests or any requests, you might don’t like the text of the link “add new item” below the listview which comes with the standard.
If the user wants to make a new request of whatever, he expect that there is a link to add a new request of whatever and not add new item. You maybe like to have something like
- request travel
- request vacation
- add new request XX
- and new project request
Whatever you want to have there, it is possible just by using the SharePoint Designer. (more…)
