I have an issue. I need to move a SharePoint external list to a custom list. After some research, I decided to use a SharePoint timer job. Not having coded in C# before all of two days ago, I immediately went looking for templates. And found two here:
I followed the steps, and have successfully created a timer job, built it, and deployed it to the dev environment. And though it does show up in the site features, it's not doing anything.
I have two main questions:
- Are these the right sources to be looking at? Or is there something obviously wrong with them.
- What's the best way to debug a SharePoint timer job? Ultimately, I've got to be able to detect and fix these problems myself, and right now I've got no idea how to do that.
