Sitecore PowerShell reporting tool by Codehouse

A Sitecore reporting tool that maps page renderings

Posted: 25th  October 2016Categories: Tech Stream0

One of our valued Sitecore XP 8.1 clients wanted a reporting tool that maps page templates.

To accommodate this need, we developed a custom Rendering Analysis & Mapping Tool using the Sitecore PowerShell Extensions (SPE) module. This effective Sitecore PowerShell extension, accessible from the Start Menu, enables our client’s content team to select a page type from a simple dropdown selector. Upon selection, a list of the allowed renderings, columns and placeholder names and settings for the chosen page template are displayed. In addition to sorting and filtering the results, users can also export them to CSV, HTML, XML, JSON and Excel formats.

The addition of this dynamic tool enhances Sitecore’s reporting capabilities, as it enables the content team to quickly see which renderings can be added to which pages, and to where.

About the Sitecore PowerShell Extensions (SPE) module

Referred to as a Sitecore development accelerator, the Sitecore PowerShell Extensions module uses the Windows PowerShell framework to increase productivity by making it easier to perform automated tasks in Sitecore. The SPE toolbox caters for report running, session management and more. It also has a variety of out-of-the-box (OOB) add-on tools which range from content reporting, package generation and licensing information, to task management and random desktop backgrounds.
