IncWorx Consulting is very excited about a brand new product they just rolled out called BrandIt. This is a comprehensive branding package for SharePoint 2010 and a great way to customize SharePoint to give your organization’s intranet a better look and feel.
One of the three web parts contained in this package is the custom calendar. The calendar provided when using the SharePoint design out-of-the-box lacks functionality and quite frankly, doesn’t do much. The design and colors are very bland and there is only one view.
Our new custom calendar web part completely changes the game. It is unique because we have made an interactive calendar with day, week, month, and even task views to help you manage your tasks quicker and easier than ever before. Is the month view too much for you to handle? Now you can focus on what you need to get done within the course of the day in the “day” tab or even plan out priorities throughout the week with the “week” tab.
To compliment this freedom, we have also integrated a color picker in the custom calendar to create your own themes and skins. Not only does this provide for a more attractive experience, but it also increases user acceptance because it makes your users more excited to use your intranet.
Once again, this web part utilizes the wonder of jQuery, so there’s no need to refresh the page or wait for long redirecting processes. Everything you need is at your fingertips with these helpful options. You don’t need to hassle with clicking over to the calendar in the out-of-the-box version anymore because more information can be displayed in a variety of different ways, depending on what works best for you.
