Resolving Replication Issues with Publishing Links to Client Application through SharePoint

Overview:

SharePoint (MOSS 2007) has the ability for Administrators to publish links (the locations) to document libraries / lists for end users.  This allows end users to simple save documents from Office client applications such as Word and Excel by simply choosing the location instead of first navigating there using the browser and copying the URL or uploading the document.

 

How To Add or Remove Published Links in SharePoint:

Issue Description:

Despite proper configuration, published links often take a long time to replicate to Office Client Applications.  To resolve this issue the following registry key can be removed from client PC’s.

Delete this key and then restart MS Office App:

HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Portal\LinkPublishingTimestamp
