In my site I am creating a new site and subsites. We have a main site that we want to collect the different Projects (parent) and have the subsites have the project information along with other webparts (Group Members)/Tasks Lists/. I went to the main site -->Site Actions-->Site Settings-->Galleries-->Site Content Types-->Create and created a content type 'Projects'. I am still learning my way through SharePoint and just want to make sure I have done this part correctly.
The Parent is 'List Content Types'/'Item' and the 'Existing group' is 'Custom Content Types' after I select OK the only column is 'Title' I can change to Project Name/Title.
My thought to doing this was to have the end user select the 'Project Name/Title' and then have this move them to the site of that specified project.? By instead of having an 'Item', have a 'Link'? I don't know what would be best. (Specs are below)
I was advised:
I would like for it to be one site for each Project Charter. The project charter home would have a list of all sub-sites; you would create a new Project Charter from a site template.
Each Project Charter site should have all the information about the project visible on the main page of the site. Something like this:
To me this sounds like there are TWO pages. The main page has the Project Charter (the Parent) and the second page displays all the information for the specified Project the user is working with.
I have created a few different sites and selected different site options to configure what would be best. So far, I believe if the HOME site is only going to list the project names, the WIKI page would be best. Then for the site that will contain Project info, maybe use a 'Document Workspace' since on of the requirements, according to an image indicates the Group Members are shown on the site.
