DFFS New BETA version finally ready

I have uploaded a new BETA version of DFFS and plugins.

I’m sorry for the long delay from the previous BETA, and that I cannot give you a production ready release.

Based on feedback from the previous BETA I had to do some changes to how multichoice field triggers was handled, and this turned out to be a bit more complicated than I first anticipated.

When I was at it, I ended up doing quite a bit more work to enhance the DFFS backend experience – with for example better version control and backup and restore functionality.

Read the change log and get the DFFS-package here, and please post any feedback in the forum.

Best regards,
Alexander

Status update on the latest DFFS BETA

I have spent a lot of time last week and in the weekend trying to sort out some problems with “on-change rules” that surfaced in the last BETA version. Due to the changes in the “debug output”, it became clear that there were some issues that needed attention. The problem is related to using multiple rules on the same trigger – for example a multi choice field.

This means I’ll have to do some changes to how the “on-change rules” are handled, and release a new BETA – hopefully later this week or next weekend.

Upcoming changes in license types and price for DFFS

The following changes to the Dynamic forms for SharePoint license types (and prices) will take effect on April 1, 2016.

New SITE license

The entry level license for DFFS will be scoped to a single SITE. This new license will be priced at $50.

You can buy as many as these as you like, but if you need more than 5 within the same site collection, you should go for a SITE COLLECTION license.

Changed price on the SITE COLLECTION license

The new price on the SITE COLLECTION license will be $250.

The reason for this relatively large increase in price on the SITE COLLECTION license is basically that I have priced this to low from the very beginning.

The current price simply doesn’t cover the time I spend supporting and developing the solution.

This change will NOT be applied retroactively, and will therefore not affect SITE COLLECTION licenses purchased prior to this date.

Partner program

From the same date these changes take effect, I’ll update the “reward program / partner program” to let individual consultants or other companies register as partners.

More information about the “application” for partners will be published soon.

The “Consultant license” will no longer be in use after this change takes effect.

Payback

Partner that conveys the sale of a SITE COLLECTION (or better) license will be eligible to receive a 10% payback. This payback requires the partner to be registered prior to the purchase, and requires a PayPal account (to receive the payback).

nSPTiles: Windows style tiles for SharePoint by Anchal Nigam

Some time ago Anchal Nigam asked if it was OK to make a spin-off based on my SharePoint 2013 style tiles solution.

This was no problem to say yes to as my tiles solution has fallen a bit behind on the updates due to other projects – mostly DFFS.

I have now finally fond the time to try out his solution, and it is great!

There is a lot more configuration options than in my original version, and best of all: it has a GUI to create or edit the tiles directly in a grid on the page.

Check it out here: http://nsptiles.js.org/

This is not a sponsored review. I have written this as a courtesy to Anchal.  I have nothing to do with this solution, and therefore all related questions must be posted in the page linked above.

License agreement for Site collection scoped licenses has been updated

Based on feedback from “corporate users” I have decided to remove the “100 user limit” for the Site collection scoped license.

This means that the “Site collection license” and the “Corporate user license” can now be used in site collections with more than 100 users without violating the license terms.

Read more about the updated license terms here.
