Overview of the Wizdom Product
The Wizdom product is an application that offers extensive features for your digital workplace. In this article, we provide you with an overview of the application and it’s components.
What is Wizdom?
Boiled down, Wizdom is an application that offers components to build and brand a digital workplace on top of SharePoint that is seamlessly integrated with your Office 365. When using the Wizdom app on a site collection, you are provided with an administration interface from which you have access to features and functions that you can set up and add to your digital workplace.
For example, Wizdom enables you to set up a customized news system for your organization, to provide users with quicklinks to relevant resources, to manage company guidelines in handbooks, administer projects in project collaboration spaces, brand the entire digital workplace, provide admins and editors with CMS tools, and much more.
In this way, Wizdom allows you to create a hub for communication, collaboration, and productivity that answers the needs of your organization.
Wizdom uses the SharePoint add-in Framework to richly integrate with SharePoint as well as the rest of Office 365. This offers admins and editors a seamless experience when moving around in the digital workplace.
Since Wizdom is fully integrated into SharePoint, it can be tricky to spot which parts of the software is Wizdom. Most of Wizdom’s functionality resides in modules and are displayed on intranet web pages by the means of web parts.
Wizdom’s web parts can be found in the folder ‘Wizdom’ in SharePoint’s web part gallery. As you can use all the standard SharePoint features alongside Wizdom’s own app, the techniques for adding Wizdom’s web parts are the same as for SharePoint’s functionality.
