How SharePoint development services are implemented?

In 2017, Microsoft made the SharePoint Framework the recommended method for customizing and extending SharePoint Online. On-premises SharePoint clients who have deployed SharePoint Server 2016 or SharePoint Server 2019 may also utilize the SharePoint Framework to modify and enhance their client-side solutions.
SharePoint Framework (SPFx) integrates with modern SharePoint UX and it is a model for customizing and extending client-side solutions. To develop SPFx SharePoint solutions JavaScript frameworks are used, and solutions are built on using React and Fabric UI. It is important to consider code quality as a key factor in how the SharePoint development solutions may perform in the long run so choosing the best Office 365 development solution provider is the answer to all your business needs in long term.
As a Microsoft certified partner on Office 365 Development in Australia not only, we make use of SharePoint Framework to enhance the capabilities of your SharePoint but we also take advantage of SharePoint Add-in developments, old SharePoint farm solutions, and no-code sandboxed solutions to provide the best user experience for your staff depending on your SharePoint version.

Microsoft Teams Development

From delivering notifications to channels or sophisticated multi-surface apps with conversational bots, natural language processing, and integrated web experiences, Microsoft Teams developments and apps can be as basic or as complex as you need them to be.

Microsoft Teams Development

What are Microsoft Teams apps?

Microsoft Teams apps are applications that let users get the job done without having to leave the MS Teams. They boost user experience by gathering various tools and services in order to deliver better results. Some apps are straightforward (for example, sending notifications), whereas others are more complicated (connecting to another web application and allowing users to work with that web application inside the context of MS Teams without the need to switch between multiple applications).
At 365 Digital Consulting, our Microsoft Office 365 development experts can design brand new custom Teams apps for your business or integrate your existing app with MS Teams based on your specific needs.

Personal apps

line

A personal app is a specialized place or bot that allows users to focus on their own work or view key activities that are related to them in a central location. These MS Teams development solutions offer various features such as lists, task boards, dashboards, and forms. These features accelerate assigning tasks, tracking job status, project management, analyzing data, reporting, and data organisation.

MS teams Messaging extensions development

Messaging extensions

line

You may easily exchange external information in a discussion using messaging extensions. The Microsoft Teams development services deployed for messaging extensions allow users to interact with the web service to search external apps and then share those results into the Teams platform.
Users can also follow and finish a complex task with several steps in an external system and then share the outcoming results with a conversation through messaging extensions. As an instance scenario, imagine an employee who needs to go on a business trip. The process requires finding a suitable flight ticket, hotel reservation, and transportation.
All these steps are done out of the office and involve expense approvals. Messaging extensions can be used to guide the employee step by step through the process by collecting appropriate information, and using them to automate the process which involve approval processes and showing a summary of the process in the conversation.

Bots

line

Conversations usually result in the need to act (generate an order, review codes, check ticket status, and so on) and this is exactly where bots turn out to be useful as they can automate the workflows inside the Microsoft Teams with their artificial intelligence.
Bots are used in groups, channels, and one-to-one chats with different kinds of usages, as an instance in groups or channels, bots are used for sending notifications for diverse scenarios, collecting polls and surveys, or response cycle.
Microsoft Teams development solutions can also be used in the traditional way in one-to-one chats to enable workflow. Microsoft Teams’ bots can start workflows within the Teams app or other systems, answer some sort of questions based on pre-defined answers, or provide more information about product item details.

Tabs

Tabs are webpages embedded attributes that display your web-based material in a tab where others can collaborate and debate it. MS Teams tabs can be set up as part of a channel inside a team, personal apps, or group chats.

It is possible to provide a powerful user experience by integrating 3rd party apps into Microsoft Teams platform, it includes many features such as creating a “Share to Teams” button for your website, adding deep links, creating a MS Teams tab in SharePoint, and other device functionalities.
For example, by utilizing Teams and Dynamics 365 integration, you enable your staff members to access, share, and edit customers records (which are stored on Dynamics 365) all in MS Teams without switching between apps.

What are the benefits of custom mobile app development using PowerApps?

Smartphones are an essential part of our lives and they affect how people get through their day. By developing custom mobile apps for your business, you allow your staff to stay connected all the time, engaged, and efficient. Also, businesses mostly have some field workers who are attending onsite to accomplish a job. That can be installers who install a printer or an ADSL provider who send technician to fix internet connectivity issues.

Those field workers need some apps to find the job details and client details such as the address to travel there and then to allow them to capture information related to the job that they are doing such as issue details.
Businesses can utilize Office 365 development services to present data for their remote workers and allow them to capture information on the go without the need to come back to the office and use their computers.
PowerApps development solutions allow businesses to develop these types of mobile apps quickly and the low code development engine allows them to change the process as business requirement change during the year. So, the ability to apply change easily without requiring coding knowledge is one of its benefits.
In addition, the mobile apps that are developed on Android or iOS using the code normally take 2 to 3 times longer than developing the same app using PowerApps. and need more effort while the graphical UI designer mode of PowerApps allows rapid mobile app development.

What are the benefits of custom mobile app development using PowerApps?

Rapid application development (RAD) is a method that concentrates on developing apps rapidly. To complete a project, RAD has a specified set of four phases. The objective of RAD is to cut down on planning time so you can focus on the design and production phase. Even if certain processes are repeated, you’ll end up with a product that your team and stakeholders will be pleased of.

  • Define the project’s specifications
  • Create prototypes
  • Building, testing, and incorporating feedback are all steps in the process
  • Complete the project and put it into action

PowerApps development features will allow us to use RAD methodology for developing any custom web application that a business might need.
