Alternate End User Home

(Warning this is a long one 😀 )

Feel free to ask questions on how to customize it or get it to work in your environment – I’ll try my best to help – This is not the full guide but there are lots of comments in the code so take at look at it and play around with it 


Also take a look at the template addon for announcements https://community.cireson.com/discussion/5699/announcement-template-function

This one is inspired by @Justin_Workman and his homepage dashboard widgets https://community.cireson.com/discussion/5500/homepage-dashboard-widgets/p1

I have built a new Home for our end users and we are using the announcement function as operating status.

It has a separate Operating Status site

How to:

Note: I’m heavily using the W3.CSS framework - add it to the top in your custom.ccs stylesheet to make it work correctly - se more: https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/default.asp

Start by making two new pages – one for the new Home and one for the Operating Status page

Alternate Home – choose layout

Operating Status – Choose layout

Now we are going to add the widgets to the pages

Alternate End User Home:

Add 3 “HTML / Text Widget” to the left cell and 2 “HTML / Text Widget” to the right cell

Give the widgets whatever you like title

In the top left html text field add <div class="howCanWeHelp"></div>

In the middle left html text field add <div class="wiCardWidget myrequests"></div>

In the bottom left html text field add <div class="topArticles featured"></div>

In the top right html text field add <div class="operatingStatus"></div>

In the bottom right html text field add <div class="contactInfo"></div>

Operating Status page:

Add a “HTML / Text Widget” to each cell

In the top left html text field add <div class="currentOperatingStatus"></div>

In the top right html text field add <div class="upcomingOperatingStatus"></div>

In the bottom html text field add <div class="prevOperatingStatus"></div>

Now we are going to find some id’s and an url

Go to the new Home page and hit F12 – in dev tools locate the widget with My Request and Knowledge articles. Write down (or copy) the adf-id and replace the ones in the MoveArticles function in Custom_EndUserHome.js

// variable to hold the "My Request" widget
var myRequestsWidget = $('div[adf-id="object:69"]'); //uses object id to identify the widget - find it by using dev tools in browser
// variable to hold the "Knowledge Article" widget
var articleWidget = $('div[adf-id="object:102"]'); //uses object id to identify the widget - find it by using dev tools in browser

Eventually comment out or replace the ids around line 690 too

Write down (or copy) the URL of your Operating Status page. Now in Custom_EndUserHome.js put this url in the variable under the Function OperatingStatus(widget)

var aUrl = "http://test-cireson02/Page/7074e08a-ed22-46fa-b06f-9d59d90d5c70";

And replace it under eventhandling around line 675

Some explanation on how the announcement status is used:

//Widget with Operating Status - uses announcement as source for status messages
 // ** Status explanation **
 // ** Critical - Major error affecting vital systems or many users - Red colored error icon
 // ** Medium - Minor error affecting non-vital systems or only subset of users - Yellow colored error icon
 // ** Low - Planned operational disruption - Blue colored error icon

Note: All announcements are retrieved at the operating status page – also announcements that are not targeted to groups the user belongs to.

Note: It is possible to go directly to a specific announcement by providing the ID of the announcement in the URL. Put “?id=<the id>” after the URL and it will scroll to the specific announcement if it not the first one in the list.

<a href="http://test-cireson02/Page/7074e08a-ed22-46fa-b06f-9d59d90d5c70?id=e3da14f8-15e6-4e29-8f45-c922d6d170c6">Firewall opdatering</a>

Extra hint: If you don’t want the Operating Status site to appear in the left navigation bar you can put it in a hidden node – see this post, where it is described how to do it https://community.cireson.com/discussion/5020/add-active-inactive-buttons-to-team-request-page

Load the scriptfiles in custom.js with the scriptloader (replace the page id’s with your own ones)


In the HowCanWeHelp widget you have to change the eventhandling to the sites you want to go to when hitting the buttons

Updated version including icons used. (Looking for free scaleable icons - try metro studio 5 https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/metrostudio)

    Whoooosh! You put a lot of work into this one, kudos to you Mikkel. I wish there was a way OOTB through which you could easily "build" a homepage filled with pre-defined (ready to just drag and drop) widgets without the need to dig into a .css and .js editing but I think there's already a feature request for a thing like this .

    Anyways, really awesome, I really like the concept of having the most important things for the end users (such as my requests and my approvals, announcements) on the homepage. Makes the portal more user friendly for non-tech users who don't know where they should click in order to find thing XYZ as everything important is on the frontpage.

    Good stuff.

    @Mikkel_Madsen Good Job

    Is there as possibility to change localization text for "Priority" for annoucements? Now I have low/medium/critilal but in widgets are as current status etc.
