Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving your app as an app package, part of Creating Access Web Apps in SharePoint 2013.
- Maybe you're like me and you realize,…"Oh, I've been doing all this work…"and it only exists in one place.…"It's on my SharePoint server.…"I wonder who's backing up the server?"…Or you wonder, "What would I do…"if I wanted to take a copy of this…"and perhaps use it as the basis…"to create another app that was similar?"…Or perhaps you'd like to be able to deploy this app…on yet another server.…The way we do all of those things…is exactly the same.…We create something that is called an App Package.…
When I go to my app…and I go to File, Save As,…notice I can save my database…as a Snapshot, a Deployment or New.…That's because I'm in that Office 365 environment,…and I've updated my Access 2013…with Service Pack 1.…If I am not running Access 2013…with Service Pack 1,…or if I don't have my web app…on a SharePoint Online or Office 365 site,…then I can save an on premises app,…which is just called a Package.…
I can save it with data…or I can save it without data.…If that's your environment,…then what you'll have is one choice.…
