SharePoint Intranet – Charitable Organisation

Introduction

An interesting project arose whilst working for Core Technologies as I was involved working as project lead and design developer on a new intranet using SharePoint 2010 for a charitable organisation.

The aim of the project was to redevelop an old and outdated intranet which had been based on a Xerox product called DocuShare. We introduced new features that encouraged sharing, collaboration and knowledge management whilst also enabling ownership across the organisation rather than being isolated to the IT department.

Built on SharePoint 2010 the new intranet phase 1 included:

  • Custom branding using master pages, CSS, item styles
  • Custom homepage
  • Custom content query and summary link web parts
  • Automated deployment of organisational site structure
  • People Profiles
  • Digital Asset libraries for Images, Video and Audio
  • Optional Video conversion
  • Custom search results pages
  • Documentation and training was also provided for Administrators and editors of the new intranet.

As project lead I was heavily involved in ensuring the custom functional development was as required including custom content types and custom document libraries, multiple image download and video conversion. I was also involved in day to day contact with the client and time management of resource at Core. This resulted in the project being delivered on time for the client.
