Bamboo Nation – Excellent SharePoint Posts

Posted by workerthread on May 17, 2008

Bamboo Solutions specialise in web parts and solution accelerators for SharePoint.  They have several products which address some of the shortcomings in “out of the box” SharePoint, including Calendar Plus which goes way beyond what you can do with the standard Calendar List. and List Rollup, which lets you roll up multiple lists across sites.   They also have a nice World Clock and Weather Web Part which is available for free from their web site.

Bamboo’s online store has recently undergone a re-vamp, and one of the improvements they’ve made is an area for each product where you can submit ideas for new feature enhancements.  They also have a blog called Bamboo Nation, and this is worth keeping an eye on.  As well as posting information and “how-to’s” for their own products, they also have some really good general SharePoint content.  Here are some recent favourites:

Here Quick Launch Bar, Quick Launch Bar. Here Quick Launch Bar. Now where could it have gone????

Well worth adding to your feed reader.
