I started this blog one year ago, and one of the first techniques I shared was the “HTML Calculated Column”.
I’ve talked about many other topics since then, but to date the “HTML Calculated Column” remains by far the most popular. The original post has been viewed more than 45,000 times, while its little sister explaining how to use the technique for color coding has been viewed 27,000 times.
Online workshops coming soon
In the past year, I have refined this technique and published more tutorials. I have also created a formula generator to handle simple cases. The latest version of the script is on this same page (under the Download tab).
The “HTML Calculated Column” technique has also been relayed by many SharePoint bloggers. On EndUserSharePoint.com for example, you’ll find Paul Grenier’s jQuery version of the script, and a detailed example by Jim Bob Howard: the payroll schedule.
However it was still not enough to answer all the users’ requests. So I worked with Mark Miller to set up two online workshops that will include this topic.
The first one in October actually focuses on calendars, color coding being one of the featured solutions.
The second one, in November, will be dedicated to the HTML Calculated Column. During the workshop, I’ll answer your questions and we’ll work on your specific use cases.
