How to Activate Product Features Using the Bamboo Feature Activation Tool

As you’ve installed your Bamboo products, you probably noticed that applications such as Project Management Central, Time and Tracking
, and Knowledge Base Solution Accelerator offer a large number of features.  To simplify the process of activating all of these great features, Bamboo offers the Bamboo Feature Activation.  This helpful function allows you to activate every feature on a Site Collection rather than having to activate them one by one. In this article, we’ll show you how to use the Bamboo Feature Activation tool.

The Bamboo Feature
The activation tool is automatically included with the installation of products. When you run
a product’s installation, under Options
section you will see Bamboo
Feature Activation
. In this article,
we’ll be using the Bamboo Feature
tool to activate features in Project Management Central.

To begin, open the feature.
Select and click the Install
button to run the tool:

Let’s say, for example, you wish to activate some of the Web Parts that are included in Project Management Central, such as Alert Plus Web Part, Calendar Plus Web Part, and Chart Plus Web Part on multiple site collections.

To begin, on the Bamboo
Feature Activation
window, input the URLs for the Site Collections where
you need to have the features activated.  To activate the features for multiple Site Collections,
you will need to separate the URLs with a semicolon (;).

Once you have finished entering all of your desired URLs,
click Activate.  The installation process will run and
automatically activate your features.

To verify that the features activated successfully, go to the root site of your Site Collection.  Under Site Actions, select Site Settings.  Under Site
Collection Administration
, select Site
Collection Features
 and all features should appear as Active:
