Business Intelligence Center improvements

You can see a PowerPivot Demo Site Home Page without any customization at the screen below:

PlexHosted – PowerPivot Demo Site standard home page

A most of you have seen a standard SharePoint 2010 Site Action menu. This menu is fine for a SharePoint user with admin rights, but not for all SharePoint 2010 users. So, PlexHosted team have decided get this menu out from SharePoint demonstration site. Please no worries, this menu is present for all users with admins rights, so you can get a standard SharePoint experience.

SharePoint 2010 Ribbon

Again, on a Business Intelligence site, the user`s task is to navigate as quickly as possible to actionable information. So, you can create “clean” SharePoint home page with quick links there. PlexHosted team have create an example page for you.

You can see all described changes at the screen below:

Excel Services File Tab and Toolbar

In a Business Intelligence site a lot of File Tab items aint required for SharePoint end-users. Often these items could confusing because end-users usually have a read only permissions and can`t contribute PowerPivot workbook.
The only one most used item is “Download Snapshot”, so, PlexHosted developers have add this item to the clean ribbon as button. You can see it at the screen below:

PlexHosted delete this bug from PowerPivot SharePoint 2010 demo site.
