UK Access User Group – Session 2

This is the second in a series of posts on the presentations given at the UK Access User Group National Seminar held on Tuesday 20th May 2014.

This session focused on Office 365 and the web apps side.

Kevin Bell (from Microsoft) demonstrated how to build an Access Web app which was contained in Sharepoint.

Then Kevin Nickel (also from Microsoft) demonstrated how to develop “Apps for Office” – pieces of html/javascript which and are embedded in, and can communicate with your Office object.

We saw a “bubble graph” as a Content App in Excel, a “translator” as a Task Pane App in Word and a “create calendar entry” Main App in Outlook.

While it all worked well, it still feels like early days for the technology!
