- [Instructor] You'll download the mobile apps for SharePoint in the same place you download other apps for your mobile device. Because I'm using an Apple device, I could go to the App Store. I could go online. If I had a droid, I'd be going to Google Play. And I keep all of my apps from Microsoft in one group together. That's helpful for me. I'm going to click into SharePoint, and the first time I do this, I will be asked to provide my login information. Both my username and my account.
Make sure you use the same ones that you are using every place elsewhere you're working with SharePoint. Here are the sites that I frequent. Here are the sites that I'm following. And when we're looking at sites on a small screen, the ability to follow sites suddenly becomes very important. Because I can then shorten up this list, particularly if I'm using many, many sites in my organization. In the upper right-hand corner, I have search capability. So if I wanted to search for a person for example, I can start typing in Griffin Snow, and here's Griffin.
If I wanted to search for a calendar for example. And search, then I'll have return about sites, files, calendars mentioned in the employee handbook, news about a calendar. There isn't any or people who have a calendar. So, this is where I would find content, and how I search here in SharePoint in the app. I have at the bottom a toolbar that has news. This is the same news that I'll be seeing in the SharePoint Online homepage.
Note that I can save a post for later simply by bookmarking it. At the top, it shows that I've done that for one post already that I wanted to return to, but I also would like to go back to the retail sales analysis for Georgia. So I'm simply going to select that, click the More button, and choose Save for Later. If I want to go look at that analysis, or look at any of these items, I can simply click them here in my mobile device, and see for example this news story about the Sunray Award that Lisa Marlee received.
In addition to news, I have organizational links and resources that have been provided. There's only one so far. My list of sites, my list of people. This includes all the people in Active Directory for KinetEco, some of whom have not yet begun using SharePoint, because we're rolling this out as a pilot. But they are here nonetheless so that I can invite them. And then, this is me. Here I have access to my recently used files.
To my saved bookmarks, and to my profile. There's a gear in the upper right where I have access to my settings. I can add or switch accounts, I can set my push notifications, I can clear the cache for my account. Now I'm going to return to my policy review site, and after we left I actually added some items to the calendar. It's going to load first the news for the site, quick links, activities, notice that I edited the policy review calendar, and documents.
Here's the entire documents library if I wanted to look at one of these documents, for example a policy review schedule. I can simply click it to open that document. The Excel app for iOS is being loaded, and the policy review schedule will follow shortly. Now, I don't have a blazing fast internet connection. This is a small workbook, so you get some idea of how long it might take to download something. Don't be surprised if it takes a couple of minutes to download an Excel workbook, because it's coming into an application where I can actually edit it as well, as you notice on the command bar here at the top of the app.
And here it is. My policy review list. And remember that if I wish, I can edit this. Simply click the pencil. Do I want to open it in Microsoft Excel or install Microsoft Excel? And if I haven't installed this app previously, then I'm being prompted to install the app here. We won't wait for this to install, but note that if I don't have all the apps I want, I'm taken to the App Store so that I can go get them.
If I know I already have Excel, I can simply choose Open and launch the Excel app, to be able to edit this particular document. When I'm done editing, remember that this will be synchronized again with SharePoint, because I'm in SharePoint in the application. Returning to the policy review site, we also have a calendar here. There's a menu on the left-hand side that shows me the built-in quick launch. At the bottom I have site contents.
In fact, I have added the calendar to my quick launch but that doesn't really matter. If I want to find the calendar I'll either have to go to site contents, or I'll have to scroll down to Activity, but fortunately I was active in the calendar, so if I want to go back to the calendar in my app, I can do that. It says Show only events with, and I have a filter that I can apply for the starting and ending date. By default it will show me events for this week through the next month.
I can filter based on category. Or I can click either of the date pickers to go to my calendar. On the calendar, there's a dot on any date that has an event on it. I can click a new date, hit plus, and add a new event to my SharePoint calendar in the policy review site. This is the current version of the SharePoint Online mobile app for iOS.
Remember that these apps are being updated and modified on a regular basis, so don't be surprised if your app looks or even behaves a little bit differently. However, if you are going to use SharePoint on a mobile device, the app is the best way to do it. However, you could also view this site in Safari, and we will go there next.
