A new collaboration site was provisioned on SharePoint based on the existing team site template. Due to the sensitivity of certain information, accessibility was locked down so that only certain groups would have access to the environment. The site was broken down into different business areas in order to provide an easy identifiable structure that the team would be familiar with. Combinations of out of the box SharePoint features like discussion boards, document libraries (with and without content types), document sets, and contact lists were introduced.
Sitefinity, which is currently the organisation’s primary intranet software, was used to provide an area for content authors to publish the authorised information for their users to consume. The site was based on the existing intranet layouts. Both native Sitefinity features and custom widgets, like news article roll ups, contact lists, and document libraries were used to meet the client’s business needs. A standard Sitefinity form’s functionality was extended.
Intelogy followed an iterative approach on this project whereby the skeleton site map of both sites were agreed with the client, built out and the applicable functionality was added to illustrate the different features available. This also allowed the client to familiarise themselves with their brand new environments as well as the products.
