Minimum IntelliGantt for SharePoint 2013 Install
Earlier we provided detailed instructions for installing all the IntelliGantt pieces you need to run solely on your 'In House' SharePoint servers. Now we'd like to provide an incredibly simple set of instructions for running IntelliGantt for SharePoint 2013 as an 'Online' service. This installation will work for SharePoint Online (ie. company.sharepoint.com) or on your internal SharePoint servers provided your client browsers have access to the internet. We think you'll be up and running IntelliGantt for SharePoint within 60 seconds.
Step One -- View your Site Contents and find your Site Assets library.
Step Two -- In the root directory of Site Assets create a new folder named IntelliGantt.
Step Three -- Download this miniscule IntelliGanttOnline.zip file (just 5kb of data. When is the last time you downloaded anything 5kb or less?). Unzip and copy the three files to the IntelliGantt folder you created.
Step Four -- Add a Page Viewer web part to your site and make the URL point to the IntelliGantt_Online.aspx page you just added.
Step Five -- Manually set the Page Viewer web part's vertical height so things show up correctly. Maybe give the web part a nice title too.
Final Step -- Save the page and check out IntelliGantt for SharePoint! By default it will find all the task lists in the current site, but that's really just the beginning. Tons of configuration options and features are ready for you to use.
Because we linked this installation to the 'latest' directory, end users will see updates to IntelliGantt for SharePoint automatically. If you'd rather use a specific version, then you would simply use a build version directory. For example, instead of 'latest', you would pull the IntelliGanttOnline.zip file from '220.127.116.11' and your clients would always run this version of IntelliGantt for SharePoint regardless of how often we update the 'latest' directory.
