File View Column Sharing

In the last couple of sections, you saw how easy it was to create custom Design Notes and custom file view columns. You also saw how easy it was to associate the custom column with the Design Note so that the note becomes viewable within the column in the Site Management window. Unfortunately, our current configuration limits the file view column's visibility to just you. This becomes obvious when you open the Site Management window; notice that the HoursAccrued value displays 8 on the local side but not on the remote side. To share the value of the custom file view column, we must enable file view column sharing. You can do this by following these steps:

1.
Select the Manage Sites option from the Site menu.

2.
When the Manage Sites dialog appears, select the Dorknozzle site and click Edit.

3.
Select the File View Columns category. Because the Enable Column Sharing check box is checked, the column name will be shared. To enable the value to be shared, we must enable sharing for the particular column as well.

4.
Select the HoursAccrued file view column from the list and click the Share With All Users of This Site check box. This option allows us to share not only the column but the value of the column as well.

5.
Click OK to close the Site Definition window.

6.
Click Done to close the Manage Sites dialog.
