A couple of weeks ago, I was asked if I could put together a projects dashboard in SharePoint. The projects team just wanted an easy way to list all of their projects in one place with lights indicating the status of major tracking points (Schedule, Budget and Scope). They also wanted to be able to have links to their status report and project folder.
It seemed like a simple job to in SharePoint Lists -- and it was.
I thought it was good project to demonstrate the power and simplicity of SharePoint lists and how they can make everyday tasks easy without the need for additional software purchasing. Everyone is a developer.
While it's simple; the process is a little long-winded for a blog post, so instead I've created a slideshare.
