Sharepoint Hyperlink list to ie favorites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    is there a way to subscripe to a sharepoint hyperlink list with ie?

    I want to add the hyperlinks in the list to the users favorites (in a subfolder). Is there a way to do this? New list entries should be available at the ie favorites. Maybe after a manuel update or after login or so.

    Regards

  • You could try to add an RSS feed to IE based on your list.

    Typically, manipulating the browser and adding favourites can be done with javascript, but user action to accept the bookmark suggestion will likely be required as for most client side activities.  You could try adding a content editor webpart to a page and putting javascript in it :

    Here is an example of using the CEWP, and a separate javascript example of adding favourites

    Alternatively, if your users are all on domain - and controle by group policy you could set the favourites that way - but you'd need to write some sort of timer job to feed group policy the URL's by manipulating an ADM template GPO could load

  • SharePoint 2010 provides a feature close to bookmarking  using one of the Social features. 

    • I like and Tags &notes.

    Any user in the site can like or  tag the  page. This information is not stored as an attribute of the content/page that you have liked but is stored in your User Profile store. This means that the User profile service needs to be running  to leverage the functionality

    All of this information can be now found under your profile under Tags and notes tab.(Please see the screen shot below)

    'I like'  and 'Tags & notes'  buttons can be found on the right top corner in all pages. (Please see the screen shot below)

     


    Thanks, Prasad
