Chatter for SharePoint 2007 Released!

Hi Everyone – I am very pleased to announce that the new 2007-compatible version of Chatter for SharePoint is now available! You can download the latest version here. To my knowledge, this is the only solution that integrates SalesForce Chatter with SharePoint 2007.

All three versions of the solution are functionally identical – except where differences in the platform need to be handled. For example, since SharePoint 2007 does not have the Ribbon, the Share options are located in context-menus.

Some screenshots:

The 2007 version works on all x86 versions of SharePoint 2007 (WSS 3.0, Standard and Enterprise). Check the documentation for other system requirements and prerequisites.

A new version of the 2010 and 2013 solutions are also available which include some cosmetic updates and fixes.

Version changes include:

  • Initial support for SharePoint 2007
  • Fixed issue where under certain conditions the authorization token would not be written to the user’s profile
  • Fixed gradient background when running on Internet Explorer 10
  • Added support for Chatter API version 26
  • Minor cosmetic tweaks
  • Some internal code improvements

The 2007 version is licensed in the same manner as the other versions – by farm. Same price too, just $49 USD. I’m very happy to offer solutions for these platforms. Please check them out and be sure to send me any comments or suggestions. Thanks!

  1. Hi, looks like a great product! Want to get it working in our company too but getting stuck. The PrepareSharepoint.exe is returning:

    ERROR: Could not open the Windows Registry: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. ERROR: Unable to detect any compatible Sharepoint products on this system. This utility must be run on a Front-End Server running WSS 3.0 or Sharepoint Server 2007.

    We meet all the system requirements.

    Any ideas?

    • Hi Michael – I think I may know why – a key I am looking for may not be present on all installations of SharePoint. Let me make some adjustments to the config programs and I will upload a new version for you. Will get back to you in a few minutes.

      • I have just uploaded a new version for you. Please re-download the Chatter for SharePoint 2007 solution from the blog and use the updated files for your installation. Sorry for any inconvenience – let me know the results. I hope you find the product useful.

      • Did the updated PrepareSharePoint.exe have a 1/28 date? Wondering if your file was cached. Also – sent you an email requesting some additional info.
