Highlights of Tree View

Highlights of Tree View

BambooTreeView.pngAn important element for any SharePoint project management portal application, Tree View provides users with the familiar Windows Desktop Explorer navigation, allowing them to maneuver through any SharePoint list, document or picture library. Using folders in document libraries and grouping within the list views, users can organize any SharePoint list, library, discussion, wiki or site collection to display the hierarchy within. Users can group and display similar items into folders, such as high priority tasks, making it easier to navigate through large data sets.

  • Folder items are displayed in the left pane while their contents are displayed in the right pane.
  • When displaying a SharePoint List, the tree hierarchy is based on the Group By configuration of the selected list view.
  • Users can select another view from the Current View drop-down box.

Overview of Tree View

Overview of Tree View

The Tree View Web Part displays list, library, discussion and wiki items, as well as site navigation, in a hierarchical structure allowing the user to navigate to the information much like the navigational structure of Windows File Explorer. This tree view structure allows users to quickly view the content structure of the list, library, discussion or wiki and visually determine the fastest way to locate an item.

SharePoint Document and Picture Libraries

Folder items are displayed in the left pane while their contents are displayed in the right pane. The user clicks to expand a folder item in the left pane to view sub folders. Users select a folder to view its contents in the right pane. If a list has no groupings or a library has no folders, then all items are displayed in the right pane when the user selects the top node for the list or library in the left pane.

You can also create new documents or folders, upload documents, and perform standard SharePoint actions (depending on your list/library configuration settings) by using the New, Upload and Action buttons on the toolbar.

SharePoint List Views

When displaying a SharePoint List in the Tree View Web Part, the tree hierarchy can display the Group By configuration of the selected list view or a folder hierarchy depending on the option selected in the Web Part tool pane. In other words, if you selected to display your Tree View items in the All Tasks view and you configured the All Tasks view to be grouped by “Status” then each grouping is displayed in the left pane as a folder and displays the items related to that grouping in the right pane. You only see a tree structure for a view if the selected view has been configured to group list items by one or more columns.

Users can also create new List items in the configured List using the New button just over the left pane.

You can also create new documents or folders, upload documents, and perform standard SharePoint actions (depending on your list/library configuration settings) by using the New, Upload and Action buttons on the toolbar, depending on your permission to the library. Folders and items in a Document Library can be dragged and dropped in order to reorganize your content.

SharePoint List Views

For example, if you selected to display your Tree View items in the All Tasks view and you configured the All Tasks view to be grouped by “Status,” each Status group is displayed in the left pane as a folder and displays the items related to that grouping in the right pane. You only see a tree structure for a view if the selected view has been configured to group list items by one or more columns. Depending on your permissions to the list, you can create new List items using the New button above the left windowpane.

You can configure Tree View to display a variety of items such as the following:

They can view Wiki pages which are contained in the Wiki Library through a familiar look and feel similar to Windows Explorer or a file share view. Just by clicking on the page name in the tree hierarchy on the left, they can see the contents of that page in the right side of the window pane.

Users can create new wiki pages (depending on how you have configured the web part and their permission level), export pages to Excel, and set an alert on the library by using the New and Action buttons on the toolbar.
