Great webpart, does exactly as required...

Just wondering though, to use this on a team site or say a project home site, that we automaticlly created via workflows.. Is there a way to maybe get your webpart to read a value from the property bag ??

When we create a new project site, we add extra information to the property bag for eg. Project No., File share UNC, infopath XML source URL for the project etc.. We have custom Project Desction type webpart, that can read this information, which then allows them to go off and pull the required info from a data warehouse.

If your webpart could have an option to read a particular value from the property bag, it could be a set and forget. We use webservice to set the property bag.
