Office 365 Alerts has the Reminders feature

Office 365 Alerts add-in by VirtoSoftware was renamed to Office 365 Alerts and Reminders add-in. As you might expect, we added the new functionality to our alerting solution and now you can send alerts and notifications about upcoming events as well.

You can use email reminders for meetings, appointments, project deadlines, events, and any other dates that you want to keep track of.

Whenever you schedule a reminder, each user assigned to this reminder will receive email with notification, which can include the details that need his attention.

Hello, everybody!

Last week, we have the pleasure to take part as a sponsor at the ESPC 2016, the largest SharePoint conference in Europe.

SharePoint Forms Designer has layouts for distinct user\groups form view

SharePoint 2013 Forms Designer by Virto is evolving constantly, so we have added to this web part the custom form views for distinct users\groups.

This means, now you can create several custom form views for the same SharePoint list and assign permission view types for distinct users. For example, you can design edit/create/display views of the same form with minor changes for distinct departments of your company. If defined conditions allow user to have access to several views, the view with highest access priority will be displayed.

And you still can apply distinct fields view permissions to every custom view of Virto SharePoint Forms Designer.
