'My Sharepoint Sites' - Office 2010 Integration
Hello All, I have recently downloaded and install Office 2010 Pro on a windows 7 x64 machine. All is working ok apart from the integration with Sharepoint. For some reason, when trying to open/save or attach a document from within office, 'My Sharepoint Sites' is not showing. It does appear with office 2007. I have also posted this question in the office 2010 forums who have recommended I add it here aswell :) Thanks Paul

Is this in connection with SharePoint *2007* sites ?FAQ sites: (SP 2010) http://wssv4faq.mindsharp.com; (v3) http://wssv3faq.mindsharp.com and (WSS 2.0) http://wssv2faq.mindsharp.com Complete Book Lists (incl. foreign language) on each site.

Hi Mike, It is yes. It is the mapping between a users Shared and Personal Documents that are accessable through 'My Site' on sharepoint 2007.

In Office 2010, there is a menu item "Save & Send" on File menu. The recent used location and other information will be listed in Save to SharePoint. I am not sure the orignal feature in Office 2007 still persists as I did not see any office article mentioned it yet.

Does your marking this post of yours as an answer without any reply from the original poster mean that you are now sure that the original feature in Office 2007 still persists?

I have Office 2010 installed and have the feature described, but it works a little differently. There *should* be a "SharePoint Sites" folder in your profile folder (same level as Desktop, Favorites, etc), and that folder should be listed in the sidebar when saving/opening documents in Office. That said, I'm having issues with other computers where the folder is not appearing. I think it's caused when Office 2010 is installed as an in-place upgrade to Office 2007. I've posted my issue elsewhere (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/afcf1262-3e44-4949-8aa3-7e21333eb1db), but thought I could help validate Paul's question. Thanks. -Ray

Ray... unfortunately that is not the case with us. We're doing a full blown desktop replacement, new hardware, Windows 7, and Office 2010. We're not seeing 'SharePoint Sites' either. We've had one employee fiddle around and attempt to save a document to his MySites folder on SharePoint and it automagically started appearing for him... he can't explain what he did to cause the linkage to begin working. -Troy

Hi Ray and Troy! We have only recently upgraded to Office 2010 and I was really excited to see SharePoint 'member sites' in the 'save as' dialogue box. This could potentially save a lot of time manually mapping network places for zillions of users! (OK, about 400). But only myself and a couple of others can see this option? I'm dissapointed to note this thread hasn't been updated with an answer since 2010 :-(

Maybe in 2012 there is an answer to it? Have come across the same problem.
