Centralized Lists and Doc Lib Versus Site Specific
I'm closing this one out. We've more or less figured this out, however it brings up a different question which I will post.James

We're in the process of upgrading our intranet, which includes moving from SP2007 to SP2010. SP2010 lists can handle large amounts of records so We're trying to centralize where we can. We have many departments and many locations. Managing security is a nightmare. I wrote a list viewer that can pull lists and libraries in accross sites and it allows you to add and edit the list and library as well. This opens up the possiblity of centralizing all lists and libraries to one location. I feel a little funny about doing that though. Specifically, it seems like it goes against how sharepoint is intended. Here are some positives/negatives I came up with: Centralized Lists and Libraries positives: -possibly nicer for applying security? -possibly easier to share info -tighter structure Negatives: -Would have to create pages that hold list viewers on subsites in order to display lists. -Potentially more confusing/cluttered -Goes against how sharepoint is intended to store lists? -Could effect performance if too big? Does anyone have any input on the subject? James
