As a parent, this has probably happened to you more than once: after making a decision that forbids your child from doing something, they approach your better half as a way to circumvent your orders – if mom won’t let her eat ice cream, then maybe dad will. Being a parent is tough enough when you are expected to make the difficult choices for your family, but this becomes even more difficult when children step outside of their bounds to cause even more chaos.
Now, no one is comparing employees to children that need to be told that it is past their bedtime, but the fact remains that the administrators of the SharePoint platform of a company need to use a sure hand to best organize their employees to ensure proper efficiency and workplace harmony. With that in mind, BoostSolutions has developed an add-on to better set the working parameters of your employees-Column/View Permissions. By setting proper workplace boundaries for each of your employees in the SharePoint platform, they can better work according to what is expected of them as well as what isn’t, allowing them to do what they do best – their own specific job.
Through the simplicity of SharePoint Column/View Permissions, you can manage which of your company employees have the ability to access or edit authorized columns or views on an individual or group basis. Adding to this efficiency is the flexibility to set customized conditions for each or any of them, a feature that is unavailable to users of the basic version of SharePoint that is installed straight “out of the box”. By being able to allocate certain information in columns or list views as “hidden” or “read-only”, you can better restrict access to authorized information.
The depth of this add-on even allows for the disabling of the ribbon function for each view on a list, thus giving you the ability to better present information as best befits your employees. In fact, the depth of SharePoint Column/View Permission is such that permissions can even be defined using pre-set conditions so that the values of certain fields can be used to determine permissions dynamically; what this means is that it is through the values of other fields in the same list, or even fields from other SharePoint lists, can determine access rights. As efficient as BoostSolutions add-on products have proven to be, we have taken strides to show that our products are constantly trying to make things easier for you even without your direct involvement.
The quality of our products shines through even as we continue to improve upon them. If you are already familiar with SharePoint Column/View Permission 2.0 then you should know that we’ve added eight new features to the newest 3.0 version, doubling the grand total to sixteen features. New features of SharePoint Column/View Permission 3.0 include “Alert Me” support, ability to publish the “Column View Permission API”, ability to specify a default view for every user, ability to create or edit View for each user, a read-only column content on datasheet view as well as other much more content.
To ensure the most optimal working conditions, SharePoint Column/View Permission supports customized edit forms, document libraries in WSS 3.0 as well as web part. Furthermore, permissions settings can be imported or exported as XML file for easy management and batch permissions assignment.
With SharePoint Column/View Permissions, simplify your organization’s SharePoint experience for your employees to promote workplace efficiency and allow them to do what they do best – their own specific job.
