SharePoint server enables users to create custom lists on SharePoint sites. They naturally distribute information in these list as they work with them. This concept provides the leverage of creating separate information stores in a self-service way as the end-user requires. However as the number of lists increases, finding and overviewing the contained information becomes more and more challenging. Users have to combine different techniques and features such as search, list export, etc. to combine information from these sources.
The SharePoint List Aggregator app enables the user to create custom, real-time aggregated views that rely on the individual underlying lists. This way they can instantly overview the distributed information, in a central view.
