Web Part connections=Good

2 02 2010

I recently finished up a project over at symantec. Part of their requirements was a sort of 3 tiered project creation dashboard.
They wanted the ability to group tasks and documents to a specific list.
Enter web part connections.
What I ended up doing was adding a lookup field to the task list and document library, that referred back to the create a task custom list. Once I did that i was able to create a blank web part page and add the 3 lists as web parts.
I then we connected them with the lookup field using the web part connections option.
Now I am able to select a specific project and all the tasks and documents associated with it.
Pretty nifty eh?
