#12brightapps – Day 7 – SharePlus

The SharePlus app

This app was developed for the University of Brighton to enable staff to access SharePoint content through mobile devices.Sharepoint-logo

Brighton Specific App

Not for me?
Not at the University of Brighton? We’ve prepared an alternative activity for the day, try our ActionBound trip to visit Santa!


What is it?

SharePlus allows your iOS or Android device to connect to any of the university’s SharePoint sites in Staffcentral, MyDepartment and MyFiles.

What can it do?

The app has a different interface to the SharePoint websites which is more suited to mobile devices.  It allows you to access and edit SharePoint content on your mobile device.  You can even store key content offline so you do not need a Wi-Fi or data signal.

You can use it to:

  • Access and edit files
  • Manage lists
  • Contribute to discussions



Today we have two tasks for you. If you have never used the app before we would recommend downloading and configuring the app as your task for the day.  Those of you who already have the app installed, or are keen to try an additional task after installing the app should follow Task 2.
