Reach your audience with a share point mobile app


Published on

This webinar covers some different approaches to mobile solutions and includes a case study of SchoolLink, a SharePoint mobile app Habanero designed for the Surrey School District. A custom SharePoint web service allows content published on the district’s website to be pushed out to different mobile devices, increasing the communication between administrators and parents and managed by district staff through their SharePoint portal. The app was developed using the PhoneGap open-source framework which allows for easier development across different device platforms.

Hosted by Customer and Member Portals Practice Lead Mallory O'Connor, the one-hour session will also provide helpful insights on content, app maintenance, and technology that may help participants with a current project, as well as offer a chance to learn about the ways content can be extended from a SharePoint portal to mobile devices.
