Communicating company news to the right audience is critically important, providing context and relevant information your users need. Take SharePoint news to a new level with a simple way to add color coding and icons to news categories with the BindTuning News web part, included in BindTuning Build. Follow along as we show you how.

Improving on SharePoint news web part

The modern SharePoint experience has improved dramatically yet there are some things that remain tricky and that’s where we focus the bulk of our development. Our products enhance what is available out-of-the-box with functionality that is overlooked or too often requires extensive coding skills. Who hasn’t built a page in SharePoint only to be frustrated by a seemingly simple (and critical) detail? One such example is color coded categorization of news in out-of-the-box SharePoint.

The out-of-the-box SharePoint news web part while simple to use, does not easily allow for the creation of color coded categories. Adding colors and icons to your corporate, product, departmental and industry news is as easy as opening the category settings panel on the BindTuning News web part. Francisca Peixoto , our Customer and Partner Success Manager shows you how to target news to your audience with the simple addition of the BindTuning News web part.
