performing admin tasks by typical users

when developing sharepoint web parts and applications, we use the object model and implement the public functions, etc that are available to us...after all there is quite a bit that are available and most are very useful. what the documentation doesn't always do a good job of, however, is telling us *who* can perform the task.  this is a common theme i see when working with customers and one i hit in my first sharepoint development project *way too late* in the game...we had to completely re-write areas because we made several key assumptions. developers typically run under administrator privileges in their...

sharepoint reporting tool

thanks to RobertK (he seems to find the good stuff lately), i was pointed to this tool: Admin Report Kit for sharepoint from Vyapin it seems like a cool little utility to get quick, concise information about your sharepoint environment in a one-stop shop place.  it isn't web-based and i haven't done much testing around on it, but it does a good job giving you a snapshot. since there isn't any screenshots on the site (you can download a free trial), i'm including one here (blacked out areas are there to protect the innocent ;-)).

web parts and cross page connections

so if you haven't been paying much attention to whidbey (.net v2) lately, and you are a sharepoint developer, you may want to start taking a look. whidbey will introduce the web part framework (called portal framework in whidbey for now) with .net v2.  all the skills you've learned as a web part developer will help you understand the development in whidbey...so you'll have an immediate head start already. nikhil kothari (a member of the .net team) had a great post today about cross connections on web parts in .net v2.  Read it here: http://www.nikhilk.net/Entry.aspx?id=53
