How are custom web parts for SharePoint beneficial for its users?
In SharePoint, a web point is referred to as a unit of information that helps in building the necessary blocks of a web part page. The web parts are added to the various parts of the web part page. The users have the advantage of using custom web parts for SharePoint depending on their requirements and to make the page of the site a unique for the users.
A web part can be customised in the following view types:
  • 1. Shared view: A web part is added to the web part page and can be edited in a shared view format. The shared web parts can be accessed by all users who hold authorisation and permission to use the web part pages.
  • 2. Personal view: A shared web part can be added to a personal view which can allow the user to create custom web parts for SharePoint accordingly. The changes and edits made to a web part will only be visible to the user on a personal view.
The view on which a user adds the web parts to customise them is significant. On certain web pages, the user may have permission and access to edit only few web parts and not on the other web pages. Also, a user may not have the permission to connect other web parts from an existing or functioning web page.
