One of my favourite SharePoint companies at the moment is Muhimbi. I came across them during 2009 via twitter and found them to be one of those companies who have created something special- really useful products which meet a clear need. Since then they have extended their product range further and have a number of high quality products, three of which I wanted to share with you today. The great news is the first one is free!
Have you ever added a custom content to a SharePoint site and then had to add it to every singe site within the site collection manually? SharePoint Infuser overcomes this by automatically adding any custom content to all pages in the site collection. What I like about the team at Muhimbi is their site also contains a blog with great examples of how you might use their product. Cant imagine how you would use SharePoint Infuser? The blog shows you two great examples including adding search as you type to every SharePoint page and cleaning up a new SharePoint site by removing unesessary elements of the page.
PDF converter for SharePoint
My favourite tool as a heavy end user and a real time saver. PDF converter for SharePoint does exactly what its name suggests and converts common document types to PDF. The include the main Microsoft suite of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio and InfoPath. End users in education will use this facility endless times within the year and the ease of use shown below shows just how much time you will save.
SharePoint URL Shortener
Have you ever sent an email to staff or students with that ridiculously long address hoping that you copy it correctly? SharePoint URL Shortener overcomes this, again with real ease. A one click function allows you to create a short URL similar to services like TinyURL but within your company network
