"Customer wanted an amazing UI experience for their partners in partner portal. One of the key modules extensively used by partners was the Events calendar which shows upcoming events. Out customer wanted a custom solution where partners can easily navigare events inside a calendar view and register for events directly."
Visualforce, java scripts, jQuery and complex APEX was used to get the desired UI/UX . The events calendar was dynamic with minimal hardcoding, ensuring that the marketing team just need to post the latest events in an internal salesforce.com object and rest was taken care.
The user experience brought in with this solution could not be quantified but the time saved by marketing team in creating separate pages for every event compared to the earlier versions came down drastically. This helped the team to concentrate on other important activities.
