Happy Filamenting!

Filamente Team at Aircreek, Inc.

In Filamente v2.8, we’re discontinuing support for iOS7

Dear customers,

We’ve had a look at the statistics and it turns out that there are about eight percent of our users who are still running iOS 7. This number is going to drop in the coming months, especially once iOS 9 is introduced.

We’ve decided it’s not a good use of our time to make sure that Filamente is running as well as we’d like it to on this platform which the vast majority of our userbase has already moved away from. So, we’re dropping support for iOS7 from Filamente v2.8 which is expected to be available in August 2015.

We hope that you understand and appreciate our decision because it means we’ll be able to spend more time on improving the new version of Filamente.

Sincerely,

The Filamente Team

[Tutorial] How to Access Office 365 with ADFS?

Filamente supports not only cloud identity authentication, but also synchronized identity and federated identity authentication. This means that, if your SharePoint site is configured to use Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), you will be able to access your SharePoint site with your corporate ID in the form of a user principal name (UPN; for example, demo@filamente.com).

Choosing a sign-in model for Office 365

Filamente supports various Office 365 authentications in addition to other authentication methods

To add a SharePoint site with Office 365 authentication, please perform the following steps:

  1. From Workspace, tap “+”
  2. Provide Site URL, Description and tap Next (If you leave Authentication as ‘Detect automatically,’ Filamente app will detect a correct authentication method)
  3. Tap New User…
  4. For Username, provide user name in the form of a user principle name (UPN; for example, demo@filamente.com).
  5. Provide Password
  6. Tap Save

Troubleshooting

If you have a trouble accessing your SharePoint site with Office 365 authentication, please verify if the authentication method for your SharePoint site is set to Office 365 by performing the following steps:

  1. From Workspace, tap Edit on the top left corner
  2. Select your SharePoint site
  3. Verify that the value of Authentication is Office 365. If it is set to Office 365, tap Cancel. If authentication is not to set Office 365, tap Authentication, select Office 365, tap Next and tap Save.

If you still cannot access your SharePoint site after setting the authentication type to Office 365, please verify your user name or change password. Please click this link to learn how to change password. Please note that your user name should be in the form of a user principle name (UPN; for example, demo@filamente.com).
