Managing Your My Site

You can manage documents, tasks, and other information and material in your My Site, as you read earlier in the "Using Your My Site" section. The material in this section takes you through the steps involved in different aspects of My Site management.

Adding Views to a My Site Web Part

As mentioned earlier in "Storing and Sharing Documents," documents you have stored on up to five sites in the site collection are displayed on your My Site by default. If you would like to see documents from additional sites, you must add those views manually. You do not have to be a member of a site in order to add a view of that site:

  1. On your My Site, click Site Actions and select Edit Page from the menu.

  2. In the Sites Web Part, click Edit and select Modify Shared Web Part.

  3. In the tool pane under View, in the "Number of tabs to show before More" field, replace the default value of 5 with the number of sites you want to display, as seen in Figure 21-9.

  4. Click OK, and when you are back on the My Site page, click Exit Edit Mode.

Use this process to add as many site tabs to your SharePoint Sites Web Part bar as you need. If you add a large number of tabs, you may have to scroll left or right in order to see all of them, depending on your screen resolution.
