New Discount Package: List and Forms Extensions Toolkit

Have there been times where you wanted to extend the capabilities of the columns in SharePoint Lists to add features such as format validation, security, or column dependency, but searching for the functionality online keeps sending you to some program called InfoPath? A new-to-you program that means more training, more fees and licensing, and ultimately, a tool that wasn’t designed for the average user but for a SharePoint expert. Don’t be dismayed, Bamboo has the solution for you!  Introducing List and Forms Extensions Toolkit! A constantly evolving package of Bamboo’s custom column products, currently containing a total of eight different products in a single installation package. 

What is a custom column? 
Simply put, a custom column is a unique column type that provides specialized column functionality that SharePoint does not provide out of the box.

How do I use a custom column?
If you are familiar with creating new columns on a Task, Calendar, Announcements, Contacts, or any other list type, you can use Bamboo custom columns. First, go to any list, and select Create Column. Then, provide a Name for the new column and, in the list of available column types, you will see the Bamboo custom columns listed with Bamboo in the front of the name. Select the appropriate column type, configure the column to meet your business needs, and click OK.  You have now used the Bamboo custom column using the same familiar steps with which end users are already familiar.

I mentioned that eight custom columns are included in the SharePoint Custom Column Toolkit, so you’re probably wondering what they are and what it is that they do. The best answer I can provide comes from a portion of the SharePoint Custom Column Toolkit product page.

You may be thinking, “I’m definitely interested in a few of the custom columns now, and even though I may be interested in others at a later date, why would I purchase the List and Forms Extensions Toolkit today?”
Great question!  The added bonus with the List and Forms Extensions Toolkit is twofold: 1.) It includes Premium Support, which guarantees a 4 business hour response time from our support team if you have any questions, AND all major releases of included custom columns will be yours for free. 2.) You will receive a discount of over 40% off the combined list price if you had bought each custom column individually.

OK, I think I hear you:  “Hmm, I’m still justifying the cost of the initial expenditure to get all eight products at once… do you offer some way to try out the custom columns?”
Glad you asked! 

Yes, as with all Bamboo products, we offer a fully-functional 30-day trial, so to try out the List and Forms Extensions Toolkit, simply go to the product page, click the button  located at the top of the page in the product banner, and proceed to checkout.  This will provide you with the link to download the installation package, and you’ll be working with custom columns in no time.
