Recently I shared with the PnP community an event page I was working on and how I used SharePoint, Spaces and formatted Lists to design the user experience. In this post is explained the details of how the page, space and lists are made.

I will break down the components first and then go into the details one by one.

  1. a headerless SharePoint page as the event page
  2. a SharePoint Space
  3. an events list in SharePoint
  4. a SharePoint list to store the sessions information
  5. Optional: a SharePoint list to store session tracks
  6. a SharePoint list to store people information
  7. a timer web part
  8. an about list web part.

 

 

A headerless page: For the event page, I chose to have a headerless page in my SharePoint site. My intention was to save some real-estate on the page because there is no header image banner on a headerless page.

To create the headerless page, make a copy of the site homepage (the default home page created when you create a new site does not have a header and title at the top), rename the URL and rename the page title in page properties. The copy gets added to the page library with url ending “..home1.aspx”.

For comparison see the amount of space saved below.

With header, the image banner takes more space

For the page layout choose the vertical section. This puts a vertical section for the full length of the page on the right-hand-side.

SharePoint Space: Within the same SharePoint site, I activated Spaces. Spaces is a feature that needs to be activated at each site level. Do that from Site settings > Manage Site features > Spaces > Activate.

You can learn how to create Spaces from the Microsoft support documentation

Below image snapshot shows the design of my Space and the web parts I used.

Now with the Space created, copy the URL to the Space and to add it to the event page (the headerless page) using the embed web part on the page.

Paste the URL to the Space in the embed web part and save the page. If you want to customize the height and width properties of the embedded Space, use an iFrame embed code like the below and adjust the properties to taste.

 

<iframe src="https://<Replace with your Space URL>" width="100%" height="550" style="border:1px solid black;">
</iframe>

To get a similar result as shown below you may need to adjust the positions of the web parts in the Space by checking how they are aligned once embedded on the event page.

Events list: The sessions are scheduled using the events calendar in the SharePoint site. However I chose not to display them on the event page using the events web part; instead I chose a SharePoint list (details in next section).

From the events calendar, for each event we can get the event URL. This information is needed to let users add the event to their calendars. To create the events, use the Events web part on a separate hidden page or use the events list from the backend through Site contents. Use Microsoft support documentation for help.

 

SharePoint list to display the sessions information: To display the sessions on the event page, I created a list in the SharePoint site with the below columns. The field labels for the columns were renamed later to suit the event needs.

If you are new to lists and want to learn how to work with lists and add entries, follow the Microsoft documentation.

After adding the session entries, I formatted the columns using JSON to give it a better format and styling like the below. I recommend creating a separate view before proceeding with formatting the columns. That way you have a view to embed on the event page and another view in the backend for editing purposes.

Let’s look at the formatting, let us take them column by column starting with the Session column.

The session column is a single line text column and has a left-hand-side border, session title and a share button. The share button opens the default share option for list items to allow users to share session links through email or copy the link to share through Teams or another channel.

To get that format, use the below JSON code. Open the drown-down arrow next to the column header > select column settings > select Format this column. Then paste the below JSON and click save.

            }
          }
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}

 

Now that the formatting is done, the list is embedded on the event page. Select the view to be shown, hide the command bar and Apply. We will cover the Dynamic filtering in the next section.

Optional: a SharePoint list to store session tracks information:  I added a support list in my site to help users filter down the sessions by tracks. This list is what is used to dynamically filter the sessions list as you see in the image above. So, when the user selects the track in the Tracks list, they will see sessions listed under the selected track in the Sessions list.

The Tracks list has two columns, the default Title column and an About column, which is a multi-line text column.

I have used JSON formatting of the view on this list. Create a view for the list and apply the below JSON under “Format view”

            ]
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
}

 

 

Next, on the event page, embed the Tracks list on the right hand side column in line with the Sessions list web part.

 

AnandVRagav_7-1637610296235.png

 

 

With the Tracks list now embedded, we can now look at the Dynamic filtering of the Sessions list. Connect the two lists as show in the image illustration below and save the page.

 

AnandVRagav_8-1637610455816.png

 

a SharePoint list to store people information: For every event there are people behind it and I have used a third list to show this information. The reason I chose a list instead of the native people web part is, in the available space on page, I can show 5 people in one row using the list as opposed to 3 people with the people web part. I also get additional control with lists in terms of formatting and what information of the people is shown.

The people list has two columns, the default Title column and a Person column.

The result is a formatted people web part. Another good thing about this it also lets the users hover/click on the people to get their office profile information.

Other web parts in the vertical section on the right-hand-side.

Countdown timer: In the vertical section I thought it would be useful to have the countdown timer web part with a countdown towards the event date.

About web part: I used the fourth list web part to show “what”, “when”, “where”, “who” of the event.

            ]
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
}

 

Finally towards the end of the event page, I added a Microsoft Forms link to collect a Net promoter score feedback question, and this would help me understand how users feedback the event.

 

The final result is an event page made with SharePoint, and enhanced by SharePoint Spaces, Formatted Lists and other web parts.

 

I believe SharePoint offers some amazing opportunities to create pages that can meet a variety of business needs. Hope you found the information in this post useful and I would love to see how you implement this and how you might enhance this. Feel free to comment here.
