In the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day 2011, three Access team members got together and created an Access web database that allowed users to post their plans and/or wishes for themselves and their loved ones on Valentine's Day. The team published the database to Access Services and then promoted it on the Microsoft intranet. Employees flocked to the site to add their ideas and then vote for their favorites. The ideas that got the most votes garnered prizes for their authors, and the whole event generated a lot of love for Access 2010!
Watch their video about the database on Channel 9, and download a copy of the database for yourself so you can see how it works!
Access as social media?
Good question, Ramona! When you think about it, social networking sites are basically big databases with browser interfaces, so Access paired with Access Services can definitely serve that role. AccessLove was definitely a social event here at Microsoft.
