Since base SharePoint® has some functionality limitations, lists that contain even a moderate amount of data can quickly become disorganized, uninformative and ultimately ineffective. Bamboo’s Data Viewer web part addresses this limitation by allowing your user base to create their own custom views without ever having to interact with the original data source.
In doing so, you’re able to manipulate, group and rearrange the content of the web part without needing to alter what everyone else sees. This helps make things much easier and minimizes potential mistakes.
Here’s an in-depth breakdown of the Data Viewer features:
1. Customize how and what information is displayed
This feature allows you to tailor certain views to a set audience by defining column names and setting column width to promote important information.
2. Organize data by any list column
Dragging a column into the data viewer heading allows you to filter through and search data with built-in logic features, such as “equals” and “greater than.”
3. Show related data in a secondary list
This helps save screen space and also allows you to apply calculations on parent and nested data columns, including: sum, count, average, maximum and minimum values.
