The Distribution List Manager is a web based application that integrates with Fraser Health's current SharePoint and Active Directory environment to display a list of distribution lists that an employee is subscribed to. It also provides a one click solution to request removal from any distribution list listed.

Justification

Justification

Fraser Health has a problem with the amount of email distribution lists that exist in the company. At the moment there is no easy way for employees to see which distribution lists they are a part of. Some of these distribution lists become irrelevant to employees as they change jobs or locations. This means that some get a substantial amount of unnecessary email.

Tooling

Because the Fraser Health organization was already utilizing Microsoft server technology, I intergrated my solution with Sharepoint. I developed a custom SharePoint application that would hook into active directory and display the information to the user.

Challenges

Challenges

The biggest challenge was getting the project approved. In such a large corperation, creating a tool like this meant interfacing with multiple teams in an attempt to get approval. I reached out to the Server Team, the Exchange Team and the security team in order to get all the information neccesary to make this a functional utility.
