Connecting IntelliGantt to SharePoint 2013 Online with a Single Link

Our new IntelliGantt App for SharePoint lets you access SharePoint 365 Online task lists with any modern web browser on any web page with a simple link. This means you can work with your SharePoint task data from within your site or on any web page available on the internet. From a classic desktop PC, laptop, Mac, MacBook, Surface, iPad, Android tablet-- anything you can think of-- we make it easy to work with SharePoint.

So what is this magical link?

You can access this directly by clicking on it, or embed it within an iframe to place it on any page. Once you do, it will look like this:

IntelliGantt for SharePoint is fully interactive both in UI feedback and its data connection to SharePoint. When you make a change, it's made on SharePoint as well. Let's start with a simple login so we can see some data. First click on the 'Sites' cog so we can add a site to the list (yes, you can view more than one site and its task lists at a time).

Enter your SharePoint site information. IntelliGantt for SharePoint 2013 is designed out of the box to work with Microsoft's Office 365 cloud offering. If you are using SharePoint 2013 on premises, that will be supported as well, but takes additional configuration.

If you choose to have IntelliGantt remember your username and password by clicking 'Remember', this information is ONLY stored on your local browser. Once you are properly authenticated, IntelliGantt for SharePoint will find all the task lists in the given site and display their contents.

You will also be able to 'pre-select' the lists to show, which view to apply and other settings, but that is for future posts.

If you have any questions or want to make sure your needed feature is there, please visit our IntelliGantt for SharePoint forum.
