For those who want their search results as efficient as possible the Sharepoint Lookup Pack is the definite solution, a bundle of three products in one pack each designed to complement the others at a reduced price, the Sharepoint Lookup Pack drastically enhances the functionality of Sharepoint Lookup.
The three programs are Cross-site Lookup which allows users to look up and retrive information from any site in a single collection, Cascaded Lookup which trims down on lookup options and Lookup Tracker which provides an overview page listing all information related to an item. Together these three add-ons are a powerful boost to the default Sharepoint.
Cascaded lookup is a software designed to add and filter search options. With it countries for example can be filtered by continents and companies by industry and size. The number of documents can also be controlled by adding for example filtering levels such as “location: China”, “createdby: CEO” and “created: 2008” Cascaded Lookup will within seconds present the user with all text documents created in China by CEO’s that year. Users can also filter lookup items by multiple columns, which essentially means that the content of several fields is used to define a content of another field. It also includes the ability to let users build single and multiple parent-child relationships without any limitation on the number of cascading levels, and it allows for selecting a combination of filters on the source or target list to filter items in an lookup field to name but a few abilities.
The second add-on is the Cross-site Lookup which allows users to import information from other sites into site collection they are using. It includes live-search, the ability to add a “create new item” link as well as to show additional fields from other source lists and customize the column order. Columns values can be filtered by selecting list views and items can be looked up in folder mode. Duplicated Lookup Items can easily be removed. Views can also be converted between Sharepoint Lookup Columns, Cross-Site Columns and Cascaded Lookup Columns and It supports lookup information from “date and time” and “number columns.”
The newest version adds compatibility with Microsoft Office products such as Excel, Access, Word and Sharepoint Workspace.
Finally, there is the Sharepoint Lookup Tracker, a software that gives the user the ability to gather all information related to a given item. The Lookup Tracker searches all items related to the item in question and displays them categorized in a list. It is also very user friendly as after it has been installed a shortcut directing the user to related information page is added on the “item edit menu” and “item display-form” toolbar. The page lists all items that one item looks up from and also all items which look up information from this item. A “Related Information” link then displays all information which are connected to the item and is designed specially with compatibility with Cascaded Lookup and Cross-Site Lookup.
With the Sharepoint Lookup Pack searching, editing and managing lists becomes so much easier.
