“We’re proud to call Lightning Tools a partner of Voitanos. With industry leading solutions and people at the front of customer needs with awesome tools like Lightning Conductor, Lightning Forms, and Data Viewer to name a few. Their solutions are always at the top of the list when our customers ask us for solutions to challenges they have in their organization!”

“Our customers business users now complete forms which kick-off workflows and assign tasks. The new forms guide the user to provide more accurate and
complete information. Once the form is submitted, the associated tasks are assigned and emailed to the appropriate personnel.
Immediately the users know which requests are in progress, in revision, or complete and who the open tasks are assigned to and when they were assigned. This is a significant improvement over the original process of email requests being sent back and forth with an outdated Excel form. Employees can now see who made the request, who approved it, who completed the tasks, and who fulfilled the request, making the process easy and transparent.”

Before Lightning Conductor, all we had available to us was default SharePoint views and custom coded JSON views, which were difficult to built and maintain and had plenty of limitations. Lightning Conductor perfectly filled that gap and allowed us to easily create simple dashboards that pull from SharePoint lists. Read more

I was just about managing to create as view in my document library but it meant that I was the only one who could create views and it took me forever to create each view as it came along. With this tool I am able to very quickly create the view I need and can also let others self-serve. The tool I am sure will continue to benefit us in many ways.

Having experience of SharePoint On Premise and also SharePoint Online, there isn’t an out of the box app/webpart that enables you to ‘roll up content’ from a variety of source’s (in my case SP Lists, but there are many other data sources it works with) across site collections with an easy to use and intuitive interface which is what Lightning tools excels at.

Due to the large proportion of external workers, as well as new and departing employees, it is necessary to frequently change user and group permissions at all levels and in all areas of SharePoint data structures. In those cases, the Lightning Tools DeliverPoint tool is a great and valid helper for us. Also it is very useful for making reports of using rights of relevant objects and their subsequent processing in reports for auditors etc.

When first starting to use Lightning Forms, we had fairly simple use cases including a light touch Contact Management tool to allow colleagues to request a callback on behalf of a customer, and a Repair Request & Track tool for people to request a repair to their property and track its progress. While simple, these two cases have been largely successful and popular internally.
We are now looking to more complex use cases, including revamping our void property reletting process. This will bring together a number of departments and allow them to work together on each void in a visual way, giving everyone access to real time information and updates. This is particularly vital considering our colleagues work more remotely. We feel this solution is very powerful and is helping us strive to be sector leaders in this area.

We’ve used lightning forms on literally dozens of our SharePoint sites now and it’s just excellent, especially because it doesn’t interfere with our ability to governance and administer the sites.
