Topic:  Using Content Query Web Part to Create Business Solutions

Speaker: Paul Galvin & Natalya Voskresenskaya

Meeting Description

Description: MOSS 2007's Content Query Web Part (CQWP) enables users to create custom views of data queried from many sources, and present that data in one place. Despite its powerful query & content refinement options, CQWP is often an underrated and overlooked feature. CQWP is both a "data extraction engine" (find documents or list items anywhere in a site collection) and also a first-class presentation tool that enables users to control how content is presented by wrapping HTML and styles to format the display nearly any way you wish.

In this demo-heavy session, they will show how to use the CQWP to solve business problems by showing off core features.

-use default CWQP features, including audience targeting

-use CWQP as a reporting tool anywhere in a site collection via filter criteria such as "all documents created today".

-change look & feel of query results to highlight business data, show additional columns of information, display information in a grid format, and others.

-show how CQWP can aid in content type administration (i.e. find all documents of a particular content type so as to understand potential impact of changing a CT definition).

-describe some limitations of CQWP

-provide a list of resources for advanced CQWP techniques, including blogs, ECQWP Codeplex project & MSDN documentation.
