Pentalogic Technology, Microsoft SharePoint specialists, recently announced the release of its SharePoint Highlighter tool.
SharePoint Highlighter is a custom tool that can be added to any existing SharePoint list or library that creates visual effects, including color coding, icons, progress bars and countdowns, the company stated.
Pentalogic CTO and founder Ryan Wheeler said its difficult for workers to properly identify what to do with information contained in the library or list, and SharePoint Highlighter helps with this issue. Workers can utilize the technology in several ways, including to highlight priorities and assign certain task to employees, Wheeler added.
“The success of any SharePoint deployment is all about getting the people to use it,” said Wheeler. “Lists are the building blocks for SharePoint – but for the end-user, the experience of a SharePoint list isn’t especially inspiring.”
SharePoint is a key product for Microsoft, which recently released its third quarter results. According to the company, revenue for SharePoint increased 11 percent, as total revenue for the company reached $5.23 billion during the quarter.
