We have been hard at work developing tons of new Widget functionality, and as some of you noticed in the recent "Gothenburg Theme" video, that we have developed the shopping cart functionality that has been missing from Service Portal. The good news is that we have now released this as an update set that can be applied to any portal. The cart includes the following functionality: Multiple quantity support for both "Buy Now" and "Add to Cart" Cart preview dropdown in the theme header Customizable URL's for "continue shopping" and "successful order" Ability to save and load a previously saved cart Order on behalf of another user Generate "Deliver to" from requested for users location Many "Instance Options" to customize the widgets Mobile cart icon when viewed on mobile devices Check out some of the screen captures below. If anyone is interested, please email us at email@example.com for more information and pricing.
Helsinki has officially been released! This is great news for those of you looking to utilize the new Service Portal, but that's not all you should be excited about. Helsinki also offers many new exciting features such as: Customer Service Management (CSM) CSM offers a variety of communication channels that allow organizations to work with customers to ask and resolve questions. Using CSM you can utilize chat, web, email, and telephone to provide a better customer service experience. Portfolio workbench Program and portfolio workbench enables program tracking in a single view for improved decision-making and reporting. New capability allows grouping projects and demand together as “programs,” allowing “program” level changes to cascade throughout the group, saving time and reducing data entry errors. List v3 List v3 is an optional feature that admins can activate in Helsinki. With List v3, you will be provided with more context within a list to prevent the number of clicks, new pages you have to open etc. Guided Setup Guided Setup accelerates time to value with predefined steps to configure incident, problem, change, service catalog and more. GIT Integration Streamlines the agile development process by supporting any Git-compatible distributed source control solution such as GitHub or Bitbucket. Native Apple iPad Application Tap into the power of the ServiceNow platform directly from an iPad with a native iOS experience. If you have not had the opportunity to check out Helsinki yet, it is also available as an upgrade option on all developer instances.

It's been an incredible journey over the past year going back to ServiceNow to help develop the new Service Portal. I know that Service Portal is going to be a game changer... not just for building portals, but also for developing custom applications and enabling "everything as a service" within the enterprise. Introducing NewRocket. Today I'm very excited to announce the launch of NewRocket, Inc.; a new company focused on creating extraordinary experiences on ServiceNow through self-service portals and custom applications. By the time Service Portal is released in Helsinki we will have several complete turn-key solutions and Service Portal themes built and ready to go. For more information check out: newrocket.com Early adopters wanted. I am looking for a couple companies (applies to partners as well) who are looking to upgrade to Helsinki and build a new portal on Service Portal within the next 6 months. We're offering a reduced rate on portal development in exchange for feedback on our portal offerings. Thank you all for the support, and I look forward to seeing many of you at Knowledge next month. Thanks, Nathan Firth Founder, Principal ServiceNow Architect email: firstname.lastname@example.org
With the new upcoming Helsinki release which will introduce ServicePortal, I have decided to change the name of this site and focus primarily on the new Service Portal. In the near future I will be working on many new tutorials and step by step introductions on how to build portals and custom widgets using Service Portal. Stay tuned!
I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the release of Service Portal so I wanted to send out a quick update. Service Portal is being released in Geneva only as an opt-in technology preview. What that means is, it can be enabled only by ServiceNow, is for evaluation purposes only, and not for production use. Service Portal is scheduled to be fully available in Helsinki. To partake in the Geneva technology preview of Service Portal, please contact your ServiceNow support representative. For an inside look at the technology behind Service Portal, Dwight Gunning has put together a Google Doc.
