Abstract [en]

In SharePoint 2013, Microsoft added a social networking function in the personal sites (My Site) of a user. In this version, a personal news feed has been added which shows events regarding subjects the user follows, such as document changes, user updates, tagged posts, and site activities. The purpose of the thesis is to investigate whether or not it is possible to extend the news feed function by adding an independent component as part of My Site, to allow users to follow corporate news by choosing their categories of interests.

A prototype of the component was implemented and it met most of the objectives stated in the thesis. It is added to the default page of the user’s My Site as a web part and it is able to retrieve and display news that matches the user’s subscription. Although the web part still needs improvements in both functionality and design, it still confirms that it is possible to extend the current My Site news feed with such a component.

Since the students working on this thesis had no prior knowledge of SharePoint or .NET development, the project brought new challenges, as the students needed to learn how to work in a SharePoint environment and to learn to use Microsoft Visual Studio for .NET development.

Abstract [sv]

Microsoft har i SharePoint 2013 förbättrat användarnas personliga sidor (My Site) genom att sammankoppla dem i ett socialt nätverk. I förbättringen har ett personligt nyhetsflöde som visar händelser som användaren följer tillagts. Denna rapport avser att undersöka möjligheten att utöka det personliga nyhetsflödet med att lägga till en oberoende komponent i My Site. Komponenten ska tillåta användarna att prenumerera på företagsnyheter genom att välja bland olika nyhetskategorier.

En prototyp av komponenten implementerades och resultatet uppfyllde de flesta kraven som ställdes i början av arbetet. Komponenten har lagts till i användarens My Site som en webb del och hämtar automatiskt de senaste företagsnyheterna som matchar användarens prenumeration. Den utvecklade prototypen kan förbättras både i funktion och design, men har uppfyllt behovet för denna rapport som avser att undersöka möjligheten att utöka det personliga nyhetsflödet i My Site med en sådan komponent.

Eftersom projektmedlemmarna saknade förkunskaper i SharePoint och .NET utveckling innebar projektet nya utmaningar. Studenterna lärde sig att arbeta i SharePoint miljö samt i Microsoft Visual Studio för .NET utveckling.
