Filamente Overview – How to Use SharePoint Views, Sorts and Filters from iPad

 

This video provides an overview of how to use Filamente’s most basic features such as adding multiple SharePoint sites, marking contents as favorite, sorting and filtering contents and viewing documents.

 

Filamente is a Microsoft mobile SharePoint client for Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It supports SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010 and Office 365.

 

Managing multiple sites

You can add many SharePoint sites to Filamente for quick access without needing to provide a userID and password by selecting the userID from the existing userID list.

 

Favorites

You can tap a star icon for each SharePoint list or document library to save it to your Favorites. Once marked as favorite, you can access them easily from Favorites section.

 

Local Documents

When you want to keep a SharePoint document for an offline viewing, you can save it to Local Documents.

 

SharePoint views, sorts and filters

You can view all existing SharePoint views. To select a SharePoint view, simply tap a SharePoint view. You can sort SharePoint items by tapping a column name. Filamente will group items intelligently based on the column type. For instance, for the User group type, items are grouped by each assigned user.  You can then directly navigate to each user via the index.

When you long press (tap & hold) a column, you can apply filters. For instance, to display only Priority 1 and Priority 2 items, select P1, P2 and tap Apply. If you want to apply additional filter criteria, long press the other corresponding column.  For instance, by selecting “John Doe” I see Priority 1 and Priority 2 items assigned to John Doe only.

 

Document Library

When you go to a document library, you can see all documents and folders. When you tap a folder, you see all documents within the folder. When you tap a document, Filamente shows it on the main pane. For full screen view, tap the full screen view icon. To come back to a normal view, tap the exit full screen view icon.

You can edit MS office documents by sending the document to a third-party software such as Documents2Go and QuickOffice. To do so, tap Action, then tap “Open In..” and select the app that you’d like to use to send a document to.
