How do I link web parts between subpages on Sharepoint Services?

Posted on 2004-04-30

I'm using Sharepoint as an intranet site for my company. My company has three main branches that I'm going to have use the sharepoint site as their main home page enforced through a group policy. Since announcements posted on one intranet site for one branch may not pertain to another branch but there are however corporate-wide annoucements that still need to be distributed. Is there a way to link Link annoucements from the main corporate site down to the sublevel sites?

My site structure will be as follows. I will have one main site that will have three sublevel sites, one for each branch. The main site will be for corporate wide resources that don't change from branch to branch, (e.g. HR forms, corporate wide quarterly earnings reports, etc...) and each branch will maintain their own branch administrative annoucements ("please remove the stuff from the fridge we will be cleaning it out on Tuesday .....) Is there a way to get the main page annoucements meant for the entire corporation one the sublevel branch pages? I can't seem to figure how to do this.

Why not have a generic page for the whole company, and then sub webs for each branch office? Get everyone's browser to point to the high level one (and if the information gets there it should be important). Then tailor your SHarepoint site to give a prominent link to the sub webs. You could restrict access to each of the branch sub webs by group, but you may not wnat to if you want to fioster teamwork and a sense of belonging across the branches

That's kinda what I was thinking as well. But I have my reasons for trying to do this. Is it possible?

ID: 10988290 would you make a prominent link on the main corporate site for the sub pages? Right now it's kind of a pain to get to the sub sites. Use front page and just make a link?

I would look at the code behind the links page to see if the text can be changes or customized. Front Page is probably easistg, but notepad would do it.
