In my team, I've been tasked into automating some of the things we do. I have been playing around with SharePoint (I don't have full overall SharePoint admin privileges though, although I do own the site).
Let me provide an overall context. We've a lot of projects going on in the company. Collection of these projects is called 'RELEASE'. We track 'status' of each project and then create weekly reports based on status of each project. Based on status of each project, we derive overall status of the release.
So, what we are trying to do is create a page that does the following:
First, it shows overall status of the release (color coded and auto-calculated) along with some text-description manually entered.
Below that, it shows a list of all projects along with status of each project
Below that, it shows calendar view of above list
Below that, some text to be entered by page owner.
See image for a rough layout.
This list of projects may also be referenced in other SharePoint pages.
So far, it looks like WebParts is the way to go. But I couldn't figure out a way to setup such a web-part. How to get list view, how to get calendar view in web-parts? What web-part (or content type) for each of the four element?
Any help or advise will be much appreciated.
