Apparently you could have edit access to a document you are following and yet have it not show up under Shared with me

Thanks John! The "Select share" button is exactly what I used, however the email notify thats fired as a result only has a follow link which in turn displays the shared resource under followed rather than Shared with me.

FYI: Its already been tried. I am able to deploy without the error when I just use the default list template line that was generated initially. THanks!

comment Can I create Multiple forms assigned to multiple views for the same Sharepoint List?
Not sure if this is possible, but couldn't I just hide certain content type forms (while dropping down on New Item Ribbon Button) on my other views?

hmm you got a point..a couple actually. Besides these issues though, there aren't any limits on the number of concurrent users though, right?

That's what I though too. However, isn't it easier to have just a single account with concurrent users rather than have individual accounts for each if they are to be setup with the same permission levels and need access to the same content on sharepoint?

Im assuming all I need to do is to simply open up a web part project in Visual Studio, derive from CoreResultsWebPart and deploy to my site? Any other modifications surrounding this?

Yes, that is what I am looking for. However, all it shows is the modified code. Any resources on explaining the entire process of implementing the web part? Thanks!

comment How do we add Sort By Last Name on People Search?
Well, for some reason my people search results page errors out with an exception once I change the properties of the LastName Metadata field. There is no going past this. Should I need to configure anything else to ensure the people search page stays intact and doesnt error out on me? Thanks!

@MatthewMcDermott I meant I'd like to present one of our HR staff with an interface/web part (Form hosted on SharePoint) to manage any trivial profile changes such as phone numbers and emails.

@Mike I got the exact same requirement and cant seem to find $results anywhere on the template. I am looking at "People Search Core Results" webpart. Am I missing anything?
