Connecting Windows Phone to SharePoint Online in Office 365

Thursday, May 5, 2011

One feature that you may or may not be aware of is the ability for a Windows Phone to connect to a SharePoint Online site via the Office Hub. I thought this would be a bit more involved than it was sitting on the train late last night with nothing to do but it was very simple. Make sure you enter the https address of the SharePoint site and you get a nice sign-in screen where you enter your SharePoint online ID and password. Once signed it the site content is available for you to browse, the lists I got were:-

  • Announcements
  • Form Templates
  • Links
  • Share Documents
  • Site Assets
  • Style Library
  • Tasks  

I don't need all these libraries and I haven’t yet looked if there is a way of not allowing access to some of these on Windows Phones and not others, will let you know.
