Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog

After struggling for 2 1/2 days I finally came up with a passable solution for this problem.  I would create a custom list mirrored after the Contact List Template, except it would include Full Name as the Title field.  I created a console application that would go through each site and create the new list using the clean template, import all the information, delete the old list, and add the link to the QuickLaunch.  If you go through my old entries I have information sprinkled about in code sample pieces.  The happy end result is that extra columns that are clearly not supposed to be there do not appear.  The morale of this story is that you are opening a world of hurt if you mess with the Contact List Template.  It is a bad idea to try and delete or change the Title field in a Contact List.  I am going to strongly reccomend that you guys do not touch this field or at least if you do beware of the consequences.  You must clearly be a masochist...
