Reston, Virginia (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Bamboo Solutions Corporation, a dynamic technology company helping clients deliver web sites and portal applications built on Microsoft SharePoint® technology, today released two new products for SharePoint - List Rollup and Password Reset Web Parts. In addition, a new version of Bamboo’s top selling Calendar Plus Web Part is also available this week. As with all Bamboo Web Parts, these new products support both SharePoint Portal Services 2003 (SPS) and Windows SharePoint Service (WSS) sites.
The List Rollup Web Part is a competitively priced and user friendly tool that allows users to consolidate various SharePoint list items into a single, dynamic view which can then be filtered and sorted for relevant information. Users define which lists are included, select different columns from each list for inclusion and can select multiple lists and/or views from both SPS areas and WSS sites. They can apply CAML filtering, select a master list for all selected lists to conform to for content and formatting, and save selections for re-use while tweaking lists and/or views to roll up the data as needed. This Web Part creates a DataView web part which can be formatted further using Front Page 2003.
Utilizing the List Rollup DataView, users can easily correlate diverse information and dramatically improve their SharePoint portal application to handle greater project and task management activities. For instance, a manager who supervises three different departments, can roll up tasks for all three into one Data View – allowing him/her to manage activities and deliverables across the entire organization.
The Password Reset Web Part quite simply allows SharePoint users to self-administer resetting their passwords. Users are able to unlock and change their own password without calling IT for support, dramatically increasing productivity for both IT and end users alike. This solution is accomplished through a standard web site interface. Email confirmation is sent to the user, upon which a secondary validation is required, ensuring the secured transaction. This web part supports both Active Directory and NT domain account modes.
The latest and highly anticipated version of Calendar Plus Web Part, release 1.2, provides users with enhanced features for viewing and displaying SharePoint list items in a calendar view. Using SharePoint list view filtering criteria, users can now display items beyond the standard calendar binding date. This option, as well as other web part settings, can be turned on/off as required. In addition, the calendar menu tool bar now supports multiple languages – Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Swedish and Vietnamese – allowing for greater conformity to site settings.
All three web parts are available for immediate purchase and download via Bamboo’s online store (http://store.bamboosolutions.com). Additional product information as well as extensive and useful application notes, free trial downloads, FAQs and user forum can all be found on the Bamboo web site.
