Sharepoint WSS 3.0 Questions regarding security, delegation, tasks & list access.

ADTechSupport used Ask the Experts™
We are implementing WSS 3.0 and as we get more advanced beyond the standard templates I have these questions:

How do you get info from a list in a different site? i.e. I have an employee list at the top site and want to pull info from it into a list at a sub-site.

Delegation.  How do you have someone take care of someone elses tasks.  1.  Set ahead of time when they know they will be out and 2.  When they are out unexpectantly and have task assigned to them that someone else needs to handle.

Security.  Can you only show records in a list to the people who were involved in the workflow?

Can User Tasks web part show tasks for all workflows or just the ones on that particular site?  i.e. I want the home page to have user task for tasks from ALL sub-sites.

you need to put some development efforts here to have your requirements implemented. Looks like there are some different customizations needed, could you please split your question to get more detailed answers?

The Data View Web Part or the Content Query Web Part can collate data from sub-sites and pull it into parent sites, but generally not the reverse.

Delegation isn't automated and has to be configured manually.

In regard to the last question yes.  Workflows define visibility by where it is in the workflow.


I gave a few points for the suggestion to split the question up!
