Top Banner Rotator:


What is it: Each site can have its own set of rotating banners. You can have as many images rotating as you want. The following shows 2 banners rotating each for the intranet home site, a department site, and a project site.

Why did we build it: If the main intranet page is like a "home" for the company, and both departments and projects also have their own homes, then doesn't it make sense for "homes" to have their own look?


Where does the data come from: From a SharePoint picture library called TopBanner.

How to use it:

a. To change the banners, go to Site Actions/View All Site Content and click on the TopBanner picture library. You'll see the options to upload or delete banners. After you upload a banner, you'll get this edit window. You can specify a comment to appear on the actual banner itself. Quick and easy way to make announcements.

b. To change the timing of rotation, go to Site Actions/View All Site Content and click on the sysSiteInfo list. There should be 1 item in there corresponding to the name of the site. Edit it that item and it's the SiteBannerInterval column that controls how long a banner appears. By default, it's set to 6000 milliseconds (6 seconds).

Footnotes

Apart from the new SharePoint 2013 templates, document management, social features, etc, Microsoft SharePoint 2013 has also introduced an App Store Model as well as a part of the new SharePoint 2013 features. Read more about these SharePoint 2013 features below.


More SharePoint 2013 features - App Store Model:

Along with SharePoint 2013, Microsoft is also introducing a new Cloud App Store model on which not only will you be able to build your own apps on commonly used formats such as HTML and JavaScript, but you will also be able to publish and make you app available to the entire public. Thus, though this App Store, people will also be able to buy your apps. It is up to you whether you choose to publish your apps to SharePoint 2013’s public app store to make or available to the public, or your own internal app store, through Microsoft SharePoint 2013, which will make the apps available only to your company/organization’s employees. This is a completely new addition to Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and thus through these SharePoint 2013 features, SharePoint 2013 keeps up with the current trend of apps.
