We have reached the final day of our List Rollup highlight series, and while I’d like to say we saved the best for last (because it’s AWESOME), I think all of our products are awesome, so I try not to play favorites. List Rollup boasts extremely powerful features as a content aggregation tool that allows you to combine list data from anywhere in SharePoint®. But once you aggregate the data, how do you display it? With Data-Viewer of course! This leads me to our final product pairing showcase.
Data-Viewer allows you to create intelligent grid views for effective data analysis on a variety of data sources, including SharePoint Lists, SQL Server Tables/Views, and Business Connectivity Services. One of the other data sources it will connect to is List Rollup – imagine that! When combined, the product pairing opens up additional functionality to allow you to:
– Analyze aggregated data from across sites and site collections
– Automatically add data from newly created lists to Data-Viewer
– Filter to only include lists of a specific type and/or location
Our Solutions Director, Julie, paints a perfect picture of a simple, but extremely important use case that benefits from these two products. She takes a common issue within SharePoint – keeping track of tasks assigned to you across multiple sites within your SharePoint portal – and shows you how to set up a single view with Data-Viewer, pulling “My Active Tasks” from multiple lists across multiple sites using List Rollup. This is a great combo to help with user adoption, and more so for self-organization and productivity. Julie’s video takes it a step further and also connects our Alert Plus web part, to bring customized alerts on that aggregated List view straight to the end user. The possibilities are endless!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini-series. We’ve covered a lot, and UNcovered a lot as well. To recap, our List Rollup web part integrates with other powerful Bamboo® tools such as Calendar Plus, Chart Plus, Alert Plus, and finally Data-Viewer (above).
