Resize columns in SharePoint lists and document libraries

User experience in SharePoint is one of the key concerns for many SharePoint users. My company - Sharepointalist decided to upgrade SharePoint user experience in one of the most frequently used SharePoint features - lists and document libraries.

Sharepointalist recently released a new product – SharePoint List Booster. It’s a new generation SharePoint add-on, created using JavaScript and CSS only – no server-side code – works for both SharePoint Online (Office 365) and SharePoint 2013. List Booster enhances out of the box SharePoint user experience enabling user to do the following, when working with lists and document libraries:

  • resize columns (including auto-size by double click) - on any list view;
  • change of font styles, text alignment, color and background for columns and headers;
  • real paging (showing total amount of pages and clicking on the page number same way as in Google), visible both on top and bottom of the list view;
  • table styles color schemes – same as you have in Microsoft Excel or Word;
  • it all works both in regular view and in quick edit mode.

All those features are very intuitive and easy to use by the end users. List Booster helps a lot with the SharePoint adoption and increases performance when working with large lists and document libraries.

  1. Looks interesting, but I won't get permission for a trial without an idea of cost. How do I get that?

    1. The pricing starts from $480/year and depends on the features you want to use and the size of your environment (amount of site collections). You can submit the trial request on http://www.spbooster.com and we will send you all the pricing information back.
