My stint at the Artic SharePoint Challenge is nearly over …. I will be leaving the mountains near Oslo for the UK in a couple of hours, but the teams will continue with their SharePoint and CRM coding for another day. Such dedication! Still, I can always go out side to cool down, and contemplate:
In the meantime, I have enjoyed spreading the knowledge of data-linked Visio diagrams in SharePoint Online to a bunch of geeks who know so much more than me about SharePoint!
I hope they now know more about the capabilities of Visio….
Anyhow, here are some Theta360 shots from the hackathon:
I set a challenge to create a data linked Visio diagram in SharePoint for people popping red or blue pills ….
Each of the pills are an instance of a single Master, and are linked to two recordsets using Excel Services that provide the personnel data (and hyperlinks) and the pill colour they chose. The position and rotation of each pill is from a random ratio in the Excel worksheet. All of these details, position and rotation are automatically refreshed in the Visio diagram if the Excel workbooks are updated.
Next week, I will talk more about the content 🙂
