We recently had a customer inquire about a custom web part to celebrate associate anniversaries. They had been using legacy custom code that was being updated each month to display a SharePoint Page Showing Associate anniversaries, the associates photo, and allows their teammates to comment/congratulate each other. While I can’t show you the actual customers page it looked a little something like this. Not bad, pretty simple and the manual updating each month was the real issue.
They were looking for a newer solution that addressed the following details.
-Automatically updates to the current months anniversaries
-Displays the associates profile photo
-Displays associate details, number of years, name, hire date
-Allows others to comment
-Alerts the associate via email if they receive a comment
-Trophy (call out) for milestone anniversaries
I wanted to create a solution with a modern look, easy to update maintain and addresses all the customers requests. I was able to create this solution with a combination of PowerApps, SharePoint Lists, and Flow. By using PowerApps I was able to create a relatively no-code solution for our customer and use SharePoint lists to manage the data making it easy for the customers HR team to update.
