Users are able to display SharePoint percentage data as color-coded progress bars.
BEIJING, CHINA, June 26, 2009 – BoostSolutions, a leading developer of Microsoft SharePoint enhancements, today releases a new product, SharePoint Project Progress Monitor. As a SharePoint custom column, SharePoint Project Progress Monitor makes data visualization possible by graphically displaying the status of a SharePoint project or task in the form of percentage-based bars.
This new custom column type adds a graphical component to the default SharePoint percentage data columns, which improves the usability of the SharePoint percentage data column by making it more user-friendly and intuitive. By applying Project Progress Monitor, SharePoint users are able to present monotonous percentage data as color-coded bars, which will bring them lots of ease when dealing with a large amount of numerical data. Especially, as for monitoring SharePoint projects, viewing color-coded bars is definitely much more expected by administrators than reading through countless lists of numbers.
Another important attribute making SharePoint Project Progress Monitor even more applicable lies in its capacity of two-way conversion between raw numerical data and eye-catching color-coded progress bars. This function allows the existing lists of numerical data can be converted immediately without spending time and efforts in information re-entry. Moreover, this newly added SharePoint custom column supports presentation of percentage values both above 100 percent and below 0 percent, which has maximized its usability without sacrificing statistical accuracy. Furthermore, SharePoint users are also offered fully customizable settings in terms of color options, bar length, and the option to display the actual, numerical percentage data together with color-coded bars or not.
BoostSolutions's Project Progress Monitor is compatible with both MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0, has cross-browser support and is available in several languages.
