    Digital Dashboards - Inegration with Outlook (Office XP)


    I am thinking of developing an intranet application using Microsoft Digital Dashboard technology. Specifically, I want to customize Outlook, allowing users to create Word documents etc. from within their Outlook 'Portal'.

    Before I embark on such a project, I would greatly appreciated any feedback from people regarding whether:

    a) Is Digital Dashboard dead?
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] If a is yes, then what are the alternatives?
    c) In a is no, then what is a good place to start and are there any gotchas?

    Any advice would be much appreciated [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Many thanks,

    a) no, not really. but they didn't take off like ms hoped.
    c) and for information and additional resources.

    as for the idea of using the outlook interface for everything, i'm not sure that will meet your users expectations. opening word might be easier and give them full use of all word features.
