QuickPlace Release 2.0 supports a tremendous amount of customization that
you can apply simply by using your browser.
Build custom forms
As mentioned earlier, you may build custom forms in a QuickPlace with your
browser. The custom form is automatically laid out
as you pick the type of fields
you would like to include on the form.
Add simple Workflow to your forms
In the process of building a form, you may choose a workflow through which
pages created with the form must travel, as shown in
Build forms based on Microsoft Office files
You may also build forms based on any Microsoft Office document or file
that you would like to use as a
template. You can, for example, have a “boilerplate”
Word file that you create for all customer proposals.
Simply create an Office form that
includes the boilerplate. New pages created with the form will
automatically inherit the boilerplate file.
Customize the appearance of your QuickPlace workspace
You can dramatically modify the appearance of your QuickPlace workspace
simply by filling out the Theme and Tweak forms offered
in the QuickPlace customization
area. You can choose Themes to make large sweeping
changes to the overall look of your QuickPlace workspace.
Once a theme is selected, you can tweak the appearance
of many aspects of your QuickPlace
workspace by adding a logo, changing the background
colors and font styles, etc. QuickPlace even has a
special facility (that we call the
Graphics server) that generates animated and specialty font graphics
based on the text you provide.
None of the above customizations requires special software.
They are achieved with your browser.
These capabilities allow you and your team members
to rapidly adapt your QuickPlace workspaces independently.
