Background and objectives
We need a SharePoint / WebPart / TypeScript champion. We are gathering key information related to Covid-19 and we want to be able to output the data (text entries) from three tables that covers a specific time period. For instance, a weekly or bi-weekly report. We'd like to deliver the data so users can select the records they want and generate a report. The ideal would be output to a word document based on a template. It's important to note that our SharPoint instance is on premise so would have some differences to the online version. The blog below explains a bit of the technique that could be used.
Technology development
Information technology and telecommunications
To respond effectively to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 crisis, analyze its human rights impacts and responses by States to the pandemic, OHCHR has quickly adjusted its programmes. This includes the development of systems to gather, organize, process, and deliver timely information and analysis on COVID-19, including to inform OHCHR interventions. At the field level, human rights information is informing strategic decisions by governments and other national counterparts and the United Nations Country Teams, to mitigate the human rights impacts of COVID-19. At the onset of the crisis, the Information Management and Data Analytics (IMDA) team of OHCHR’s Emergency Response Section built an initial COVID-19 tracker database to manage the initial information gaps and situational awareness requirements. The new system focuses on the operational environment and key issues of concern, as distinct from human rights case management systems. We now need a way to make the data available through a visual interface and deliver the relevant inputs so human rights experts can use the data to inform their analysis.
Volunteers: 2 needed
6-10 hours per week / 3 weeks
We are looking for Online Volunteers with previous experience in SharePoint / Typescript / WebPart development. You'll need to understand how to use APIs and organize data in general.

Keep this in mind:

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV. By registering you accept that you do not make any financial claims to organizations or to UNV. See the Terms of Use for more about standards of conduct and the conditions for using this platform.
