BlumShapiro is excited to announce that our technology consulting team has created a new app that will help SharePoint users extend the functionality of Live Tiles / Promoted Links. The free app “Live Tiles with Count” allows you to create multi-colored live tiles with the option to add item counts. Instead of your live tile just pointing out the link to open issues, you can also have it show how many open issues are assigned to the logged in user!
Read the rest of this post to see all the features, some screenshots and some sample CAML queries.
Live tiles are a great way to give users quick links to content contained within a site. Live Tiles with Count allows you to get an actual count of items within a specific list on your site. The item count can even be filtered based on a CAML query.
This app allows users to easily create, and personalize live tiles.
BlumShapiro Live Tiles with Count features:
Assigned To field is the current user or group the current user is in.
All items where the ID is greater than or equal to 1
<Geq><FieldRef Name=’ID’/><Value Type=’Number’>1</Value></Geq>
