Infigrid team developed an employee portal on SharePoint Online according to all requirements of the Customer. The team implemented custom layout of the portal pages’ with the help of tiles (web parts) and in line with group permissions. The available tiles included Upcoming Events, Career Opportunities, News Carousel, Top Communities, etc. Some of the tiles were designed to be manually controlled by Community Managers (Upcoming Events) or a Global Community Manager (News Carousel).
Our team also created the Actions button on the portal’s home page. This button opens a drop-down menu that allows creating a document, a survey, an event, a community, etc.
Our SharePoint experts provided control over a user’s country location through Active Directory. Thus, the intranet can identify users by their country location. Depending on it, the employee portal can display the navigation either in English or in Spanish, as well as the localized content. Besides, users can change the main navigation language manually or via language settings in their user profile. What’s more, a built-in translation capability relying on the Bing application functionality was introduced into the employee portal. It can be used for translating blogs, news, comments, etc. The supported languages are English and Spanish.
As a Result, The Customer got an employee portal deployed in Office 365.The flexibility of the employee portal based on SharePoint Online allows updating news or other information easily and freely adding or changing the tiles according to the Customer’s needs. The three-level navigation simplifies moving around the employee portal and Office 365 applications.
