Swift Site Creator for SharePoint allows you to create a site when you add an item to a SharePoint list.
SharePoint Sites provide collaborative working areas containing Lists and Libraries. SharePoint is very flexible about the data you can store in Lists and Libraries, and this can then be searched, filtered, etc.. However, Sites themselves do not store much information about themselves (normally, only a Title and Description). It is not possible therefore to store other information relevant to:
- Project sites (e.g. Location, or Manager)
- Case sites (e.g. Case Number, Type, Case Status)
- Product sites (e.g. Type, Owner, Cost)
- Complaint sites (e.g. Complainant, Description, Handler, Status)
You can use this list to capture metadata (which can be used within the site), and to find relevant sites using ordinary list filtering and views. You can use this to create a site for each of your cases, projects, complaints, requests, orders and anything where you want a number of similar sites with metadata.
As the Site’s metadata is being captured on a List, you can store metadata for your site using any of SharePoint’s field types. The Site Creator should even work with most custom field types, too
