For years I’ve been sneaking click-able images onto SharePoint pages. Sneaking, you might ask? Well, this was long before I was trusted to use SharePoint Designer. It was the only way I could create user-friendly, pretty (yes I said it) environments / navigation pages for myself and my users. Of course – with enough money and developers / designers – Ferrari sites can be built – but we don’t all have access to that kind of resources.
So by making do with what I had – I actually managed. And thanks to that I fell in love with Microsoft and all I was able to accomplish by ONLY using Microsoft.
The Lighter side of Microsoft is my ode to what is possible in Microsoft Office. Every day I meet people who are astounded as to what is possible in MS Office. Which just brings me back to empowering users – and making sure that they are trained to efficiently use the tools they are issued with.
Below is the banner and “button” I inserted on the SharePoint Page. Scroll down below the image to access the “How To” Manual.
Just so you know: This is not a HOW TO for creating Image Maps in SharePoint. Image Maps are single images with multiple hotspots or click-able links on them – and can be created using SharePoint Designer. I will demonstrate this in a follow-up blog. Have a look at my #SPSJHB 2013 Presentation – it has lots of Image Map examples in.
The attached PDF is a manual which will enable you to do the following:
• Create a banner (image) in PowerPoint
• Insert the banner on a SharePoint Page
• Create a button (image) in PowerPoint
• Insert the button on a SharePoint Page
• Make this button click-able (hyperlink to an email address)
Note: I used Microsoft Office 2010 and my Office 365 site.

Till next time. Go forth and be awesome!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely
unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced
but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
