Extension of an existing application for configuration of SharePoint Site templates and development of an extending document management solution for managing project management data

The site template configuration covers configuration of basic settings for the site to be provisioned as well as the preparation of complex lists and document libraries, term management, managed search properties and content enrichment by the SharePoint Search Service.

The solution is developed as a provider-hosted SharePoint 2016 Add-In. The MVC backend being based upon the existing system provides additional services for generating MS Office Word documents and MS Office PowerPoint presentations by using configurable data connections and chart configurations on multiple SharePoint list data. Additionally, several background job mechanisms have been developed to execute scheduled reporting and notification tasks.

Finally, all documents and data were migrated from the previous environment – based on SharePoint 2010. A set of self-developed PowerShell scripts were used for creating approx. 250 Site Collections and migrating and post-processing their content and data via ShareGate.
