We have spent a lot of time over the past month working on the beta version of FilterPoint. Our team of professional testers have been working hard to check for compatibility with all versions of SharePoint 2007 and 2010 and a wide range of browsers, as well as looking for bugs and challenging us on some aspects of the usability of the UI.

And we also owe a huge vote of thanks to our beta volunteers who have been testing out the product in the real world.  Our volunteers and not only uncovered some bugs, but also come up with suggestions for additional things that we could include in the first release.  Some of these we have already added and they include:

  1. Date Picker– allows you to set filtering for a particular date using the familiar pop up calendar.
  2. People Picker – allows you to use the familiar SharePoint people
  3. Options for (All) and (Empty) Filters – allows you to control what you see when no filter is applied, and when there is no value in the field you are filtering on.
  4. Default Values including [Today] and [Me] – very useful for getting quickly to your most relevant stuff.

We feel this has added useful new functionality to v1 and we have a long list of things we plan to put in v2.

We have now also set pricing for FilterPoint, which will be in line with our Planner and PivotPoint products:

$595 for a single server license

$1,395  for a 3 pack – ideal for farms, covering 3 web front end servers.

and Site Licenses from $2,975 – covering your for unlimited SharePoint users and servers in one geographical location.

FilterPoint will be available for purchase before Christmas – so register today for your 25% discount!

We’re pretty excited about this product as we think web part connections and dynamic filtering are a great ‘hidden’ feature in SharePoint so we want to build up a library of examples of how you can use this – do you have any use cases you would like to share with us?
