1.18 The hidden site list
When the administrator or first user saves the configuration of a SharePoint site in the HelpDesk OSP Settings, a hidden list, “HOSPSETTING” is created at the selected SharePoint site. In that list an item is created and in the body of that list item all list info is saved. Thereby all users of the site will get these setting at a fresh installation.
Once the hidden setting list has been created it is available to all other users. When a user adds a SharePoint list via the Outlook Configuration dialog and the application finds a “HOSPSETTING” list on that site, it loads all the configured lists to the user. This way a new user gets all list settings automatically.
If HelpDesk OSP finds a “HOSPSETTING” list on the site it overwrites any new settings over previous settings. All the other users get the new settings when they restart their application and connect to the site again.
HelpDesk OSP respects the permissions set in SharePoint. If the permissions on the settings list are changed so that only particular users can change it, other users of HelpDesk OSP will not be able to change the settings list.
