This is barely an app
When I want to access most things I use SharePoint for, rather than give me anything like a mobile experience, this app just serves as a sort of browser to show me a poorly optimized site. This would be okay, but the issue is that the site itself is hard to navigate and downright clunky. I’ll try to tap a button and suddenly the keyboard pops up on its own and I’m typing invisible letters when I was trying to click on a drop-down menu. Very odd, makes the whole app frustrating to use. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Microsoft’s app ui, but at least it’s functional and not too buggy. Please devote some more attention to this potentially very useful app! Make it easier to navigate, and easier to find things I’m looking for. Maybe add a first-time user tutorial like most similar apps do. At the very least, make the app an app, not a proxy for websites!
Finally!!! 👏🏾🙌🏾_but needs more.
Update 1: I now use the sharepoint app as a viewer. I enjoy the recent update of being able to create folders. It is about time. Can we also get more editing features for our sites instead of going through the browser?? This will truly make the app better. It is about time the Sharepoint team made the app useful. It made absolutely no sense with what they had before. Needing two apps just to use one partially? Seriously whoever came up with that idea needs to be fired. You should have always been able to view files within the native app. Again, now you can use the app. It would be great if they added editing features to the app. Do that and this app will become what it should have been all this time.
The mobile app for Sharepoint is missing some very basic functionality. First, it doesn’t work as a stand-alone app: it always wants to open OneDrive for Business to view a file. Why? Why do I have to install two apps just to view a document in the Sharepoint app? The other major missing part is the ability to handle document library views. We build views to filter as well as to streamline navigation. But the app doesn’t show you views and display document libraries with all of their columns/metadata. It just shows you a “pile” of documents and doesn’t look like the same view you see in the web version. While I expect some differences, the tablet apps should be very similar to the web experience. Hoping that Microsoft makes viewing document libraries better very soon. And eliminates OneDrive for Business as a part of viewing and navigating.
I Want to Love Office 365!
It’s almost like the Microsoft engineers push out O365 updates and go back to using Google around the office. Straight down the line Microsoft is making enough progress to keep us hanging on, but more often than not the apps are clunky, the functionality is slow, unstable, and ill conceived. This app really doesn’t do anything to add Sharepoint features for iOS. Some with Team, Planner, and OneDrive (although that is the best by a long shot). Microsoft should hire someone that is an expert in Evernote that knows all the ways that app is lighter, faster, and more functional than OneNote on every platform. Please, make these apps work for users that want you to succeed. We’re invested in Microsoft, we’re support these tools around the office, and they’re either too illogical for beginners or too clunky for advanced users.
Deep Linking option through a web clip
Team any update on this? Should I be able to use the url schema ms-SharePoint:// for deep linking to pages? Overall my experience with the app has been awesome. But every time we had to do the search and find the site. Is there any way I could deep link the direct site to open in the app through a web clip or clicking through the direct email link of the site? If yes that could possibly avoid some additional clicks... please let me know if it’s doable?
Epic fail last 2 updates
I’m an electrician and I use my iPad the update cads that my company uses to wire houses. Just over the last two days of updates all of the things I was using to make changes are gone. Is there any way you guys can fix this. You asked for more information. Before the update there was tab that would drop down and I would pick the pen thing and that would drop down a list of things I could to my cad, like installing text or I could write on the cad like a pen. This is now gone after the update. It’s putting me in a real bind right now as I’m in the middle of 3 projects that needs this program. Can you guys please fix this.
Pretty good, but still some kinks to be worked out...
I use this SharePoint extensively to manage a series of community sites that I run for clients. Unfortunately, while the site works perfectly through a browser, the comments section at the bottom of my sites cannot be seen through the mobile app. Until that’s fixed, I can’t recommend my clients use the mobile app, which seems like a missed opportunity.
Just like everything Microsoft, it doesn’t work. [WORKS NOW]
** Updated ** Well, Microsoft responded to this review and kudos to them for doing so. They promised a fix in an upcoming release and again - they stuck to their word. The issue is resolved now and I’m upping this back up to four stars. Thanks for listening, Microsoft :-) ***** So, at some point in time, there was an update to this application and now the keyboard won’t pop up when trying to do a search on a share point site. This basically breaks the entire app and defeats the point of it. It doesn’t work on iPad or iPhone with iOS 13. I get that Microsoft isn’t crazy about Apple or iOS but then why not just pull all applications off of the App Store instead of creating junk like this?
Pretty, but ultimately useless.
On the surface it’s a clean, attractive looking piece of UI design but has little to no actual interactive features. It’s not possible to upload files, nor view them from the app. It’s a glorified file index. It leans heavily on other apps for basic functionality and beyond the first screen of each tab the interface is so badly laid out that half the time I can’t tell where I am or how I got there, or how to get back without quitting. Make this what it should be: a file manager and viewer. OneDrive with advanced file handing tools and an intranet browser.
Pages don’t display
My experience is that when I open a site in the SharePoint mobile app, publishing pages do not appear for some sites but they do on others. After comparing the differences between sites that do and don’t, it appears to me that the common thread is that if a site has sub sites, then pages do not appear. If the site does not have sub sites, then the pages do appear. It’s frustrating because we have spent time building responsive mobile friendly pages that work great in a web browser, but they aren’t available in the mobile app.
This application does not function I’ve entered in all of the data that is needed and I’m constantly getting the message stating “something went wrong.” The share point link works because I’m using it in a browser but I’m not able to use it with the application.
Can't access calendars
The SharePoint and related Outlook apps are decent means of accessing information in SharePoint. However, the absolute refusal of Microsoft to allow IOS apps to view SharePoint calendars makes the Office 365 for Business process useless in my opinion. SharePoint group calendars are a vital part of making SharePoint useful to most organizations, yet there is no way to view those calendars on an IOS device. I contacted Microsoft Business Support a few months ago and was told, after five days of back and forth, that this is "by design". Really? The concept is great and for viewing basic information in the news feed or most files, the App works relatively well. But c'mon Microsoft - in 2019 I should be able to use a group calendar on all my devices!
Latest update broke Home functionality
Update: the team fixed the issue and now the home link works! Back to enjoying the functionality and on-the-go access to our team site and documents.
Awful. I cannot browse files that have been shared to me, they have to have been saved. I’m not going to save literally 100s of files individually. Not only that, but when I go to sharepoint on my computer, there’s no way to “save” the files that have been shared to me! I can only see the files in my “recents”, and again, I’m dealing with 100s of files, of which I do not use all of them on a daily basis. Did any thought go into this, or was it just thrown together without much consideration of usability?
So much isn’t right...
So much functionality doesn’t work. Things which work in Safari, but not in the app, like the PowerPoint file viewer, and embedded Stream video. The often poor handling of whether to show a site home page and the define navigation. Really, why would users want to see a list of all the site Lists over the built out navigation? Get really tired of telling users “here’s how you get the app to show you the view you’re used to”
Yes. Microsoft SharePoint is quiet safe to use but use with caution. This is based on our NLP (Natural language processing) analysis of over 71,393 User Reviews sourced from the Appstore and the appstore cumulative rating of 4.6/5 . Justuseapp Safety Score for Microsoft SharePoint Is 37.1/100.
Yes. Microsoft SharePoint is legit, but not 100% legit to us. This conclusion was arrived at by running over 71,393 Microsoft SharePoint User Reviews through our NLP machine learning process to determine if users believe the app is legitimate or not. Based on this, Justuseapp Legitimacy Score for Microsoft SharePoint Is 37.1/100.
Microsoft SharePoint works most of the time. If it is not working for you, we recommend you excersise some patience and retry later or Contact Support.
