Bamboo Solutions today announced version 4.5 of its Calendar Plus SharePoint tool, adding new features to address previous limitations in visual deadline communication and team coordination. The new version is designed to improve the SharePoint calendar experience, including such features as:
Calendar Plus Web Part: This component color-codes company events and initiatives based on metadata from multiple SharePoint lists, with options to view by day, week, work week, month, quarter, year and Gantt. It also adds popup boxes when hovering over an item, giving detailed event information.
Team Calendar: Offers customized calendar options to interact with SharePoint lists, providing centralized group calendars, multiple Microsoft Exchange calendars, or both side by side. Users can add and edit SharePoint meeting and appointments directly from the Team Calendar, or through an Outlook-style scheduling assistant.
Mini-Calendar Web Part: Filters and highlights important items by date, and when connected to a standard SharePoint list, it can quickly sort, select and view active items.
List Rollup: Aggregates SharePoint data into a single, consolidated view, and when combined with the Calendar Plus Web Part, it can present the list data in a color-coded calendar display.
