Customized SharePoint Archiving With New kalmstrom.com
Borgholm, Sweden, 20 November
kalmstrom.com Business Solution has released a new product,
SP Archive. It is a desktop based application
that archives all kinds of SharePoint list items. This solution
is intended for organizations who need to keep records and
store their data in a systematic manner.
SharePoint has limitations in storing data, so some kind
of archiving is necessary as SharePoint itself cannot keep
records for unlimited data. SP Archive makes the
archiving process efficient, and you can also use SP
Archive for backup purposes.
SP Archive gives you the possibility to remove data
automatically from SharePoint after completion of the archiving
Specific Item Selection
You can select specific fields
from the list items that should be archived. Check the fields
you want to archive, and if they are not in the order you
wish to have them, you can change that too.
SP Archive lets you
archive the SharePoint list items to a new or existing database.
Both SQL Server and MS Access are supported, and you can
use several different databases with SP Archive.
SP Archive gives a filter
option, so that the SharePoint list items to be archived
can be filtered in various ways. There are nearly no limitations
on how you can add filters with different conditions for
Export to Excel
The archived data can be exported
to an Excel sheet. "Export to Excel is a very useful
feature", says Junior Developer Ankit Raghuvanshi, who has
assisted with the development of SP Archive. "In
SP Archive we are archiving data in a database
and users can of course see that data there, but by
using the Export to Excel feature users do not need to go into the
database every time. Instead they can have a quick overview
of the archived SharePoint list items in an Excel sheet."
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions is a Swedish brand for
well functioning and documented add-ons to Microsoft Outlook,
Excel, Exchange and SharePoint. Each product adds some functionality
to the Microsoft product it builds on, so when software
from kalmstrom.com is implemented the users can go on working
in an environment they already know.
