Additional Information

Video: Build powerful views without code

Within this 12 minute video, the Lightning Conductor Web Part is configured from scratch to aggregate Task list content from multiple site collections whilst adding multiple levels of grouping and multiple columns without writing any code.

Using the built in Calendar View, content is also aggregated from multiple calendars throughout multiple web applications and displayed within a calendar.

Build Dynamic ViewsLightning Conductor 2013

Using a single instance of the Lightning Conductor web part, you can build multiple views of rolled-up content within the same web part. Those views can contain aggregated content from the same list type or different list types. This helps with page performance as the aggregated content is only aggregated when the view is selected and is a great alternative to having multiple instances of a roll-up web part on the same page.

In-Context EditingLightning Conductor 2013

The Lightning Conductor 2013 web part is a SharePoint Cross Site Collection Aggregation web part that provides Edit, Delete functionality on your aggregated SharePoint list items and opens the item in context with the page that you are on, even if the list item in question is returned from another site collection or web application. You won’t find yourself lost in SharePoint after clicking the link to open an aggregated item.

Apply Conditional Formatting

SharePoint list or library content can be rolled up and displayed on pages with conditional formatting allowing you to apply business logic and highlight content that required attention. Conditional Formatting is simple to apply and can contain multiple rules whilst applying formatting to entire rows or columns based upon a criteria being met.

Lightning Conductor 2013Configure Views Simply by Checking Columns

Views are very simple to create! Simply check the columns that you wish to display and set your formatting properties. The dialog provides you with full pagination, sorting, grouping and filter controls allowing you to build a view without having to create view templates with Javascript, HTML or XSLT.



Display Tasks & Calendar Lists within a Calendar ViewCalendarView

No need to purchase multiple web parts! The Lightning Conductor comes with built in views such as the Calendar view. The Calendar View can display both Tasks lists as well as Calendar lists from across multiple sites, multiple site collections and also multiple web applications. SharePoint Calendar Overlays can only display a limited number of Calendars from the current site collection, where as the Lightning Conductor Calendar view is unlimited.





TimelineTimeline View for Rolled up Tasks

The out-of-the-box Timeline Web Part from Microsoft SharePoint can only display a timeline view from a single source. The Lightning Conductor has a built in JSON timeline view allowing for multiple task lists from multiple sites, site collections and web applications to be displayed within a timeline view. This feature is new for SharePoint Online, SharePoint 2013, and SharePoint 2016.
