Can you tell me if more than one "I need to" web part can be put on the same page? I have several "I need to" web parts on one page that are connected to different lists, but only the first one will work. I can see the Title list in the other web parts, but when I pick an option the URL will go to whatever the first "I need to" web part is on.
