Feature Pack 1 for Duet Enterprise is available

Feature Pack 1 for Duet Enterprise is available for download. Feature Pack 1 adds the following solutions to Duet Enterprise for Microsoft
SharePoint and SAP.

  • Aggregated Business Calendar
  • User profile-based List Forms

Note that you can choose to install either of these solutions or both of them.

To get Feature Pack 1, do the following:

  1. Go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/default.aspx. Make sure you’re signed in to your MSDN subscriber account.
  2. In the menu, click Subscriber Downloads.
  3. In the search box, type “Duet Enterprise” and then click the “Duet Enterprise” link that appears.
  4. In the Feature Pack 1 for Duet Enterprise 1.0, SharePoint components (x64) - DVD (Multiple Languages) row, click Download.
    Note that if you’re not already signed in using your MSDN subscriber account, the link will be named “Sign in” instead of “Download”. If this happens, sign in to your account and then click the “Download” link.

If you’re not familiar with Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP, the Duet Enerprise product information page and www.duet.com are both good places to start. Documentation and other useful resources about Duet Enterprise can be found on the Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP Tech Center.

The Aggregated Business Calendar solution enables you to work with multiple calendars at the same time. Site Owners can aggregate up to four of any of the following types of calendars into the Aggregated Business Calendar web part: SAP calendars, SharePoint calendars, Exchange calendars, and custom calendars. For example, a site owner can add two SharePoint calendars, one Exchange calendar, and one SAP Business calendar, or four SAP Business calendars. Any combination of these calendar types is supported. To have these calendars aggregated into one place helps you avoid switching between different calendars, and you can easily compare schedules and avoid schedule conflicts.

The User profile-based List Forms solution is a sample solution that demonstrates how you can expose different fields in a list form to different users based on their SharePoint user profile. This enables a solution developer to design a solution that only displays the fields in a form that a particular user needs to work with, thus increasing the productivity of the end user. Note that this solution is intended to be customized by a developer before you deploy it into a production environment.

Feature Pack 1 is available as an MSDN subscription. Note that you must already have Duet Enterprise for Microsoft and SAP deployed before you can deploy Feature Pack 1.

The TechNet library has documentation about how to deploy and use Feature Pack 1.
