Custom items for each application are made up of individual elements. Some are simple text elements, like a Name or Title. Others are more complex, like Parking Lot open and close times, or a related Event. This makes it very easy to mass import/export thousands of items in bulk. It also enables us to screen individual elements by user access level, and select only specific elements to stream into slideshows, grids, tiles or lists.
The Athletics Homestands (baseball games played at the home ballpark) stream into a slider with tiles & logos of opposing teams throughout the intranet site. We also feed the Game Day, Time and Opposing Team info into a clickable custom calendar.
