In Office 2007 with MOSS 2007, the "My Network Places" location for saving files has been replaced by "My Sharepoint Sites."
In the "My Sharepoint Sites" list, you are only able to see the sites of which you are a member, and you can't add sites as you could to My Network Places.
If you are unable to see a list of your sites, it may be because:
- You have not set your MySite as your default MySite
- You are not individually listed in the "Members" Sharepoint group. If all domain users are listed in the Members group, and you are part of the domain, it is not enough to display your sites. I have tested this over the last week and I had to be individually listed in the Members group in order to see the SharePoint sites of which I am a member. This also affects the "My Sharepoint Sites" web part on MySite.
Hard to believe that administrators will have to maintain individuals in the Sharepoint Members group in order to give their users full functionality. I couldn't find any details online about whether this is considered an area for improvement, or whether admins are on their own to find some way to sync the Members group with the list of domain users.
As a potential workaround, commonly-used sites can be published to Office 2007 clients – see details at the Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies Team Blog. (Search the page for "publishing links to the Office client')
Here's the discussion thread that initially helped me learn about this:
