There are accessibility problems.
E.g. I am having some of the 50 year olds in SSW reporting that they cannot even use the SharePoint app. Reason – they can’t read anything! Suggestion #1: below Suggestion #2: below
Note: it is not only the SharePoint app
❌ Same issue on the Dynamics app
✅ The Teams app has fixed this issue
✅ The Outlook app has fixed this issue
Figure: ❌ Accessibility problems – some can’t read anything! Suggestion #1: Add pinch to zoom
Figure: Suggestion #2 – add a Cogs button that would take the user to Settings | Font Size and Style where they can increase the system font size!
Figure: Suggestion #2 is magic UX – see it is fixed
I use the browser for SharePoint a lot but love the SharePoint Mobile app more.
The initial experience is very different and it should be the same. The mobile app is better, and the start screen could be even better.
At the moment on my mobile, under the “find” tab, we see 4 groups:
Figure: The mobile app displays content well, but it could be improved
#1 Suggestion for Mobile app – Make sections consistent and change from 4 groups to 6 groups
I want to see what I am using, and what the rest of the company is using, therefore I’d love to see this:
My Recent Sites – i.e. sites that current user has been browsing, renamed from “Frequent” to “Recent” for consistency
(New) Popular Sites – i.e. sites popular across the organization
My Recent People – i.e. rename current “People”
(New) Popular People – i.e. people with highest stats
My Recent Files – i.e. Documents that current user has been opening
(New) Popular Files – ie. Most used files across the organization
#2 Suggestion for Web app – Make SharePoint WebApp Start Page consistent
This is the first experience when people reach an intranet home – everyone clicks that 🏠home icon (see red arrow).
Many users first notice the horrible URL, e.g.
More importantly the page’s content is pretty bad, i.e. it shows different sections and even different content compared to the mobile app.
Figure: This is the SharePoint “Home page” and it needs improving – make it consistent with the mobile app
I would love to see the same categories described above in Suggestion #1 (i.e. Sites, People, then Files).
In short, the content should be the same – whether I use the browser or mobile app
(e.g. today even just the Frequent Sites I see on the browser and on the mobile app are different – how??).
A little one here… I think the formatting would be nicer on iOS if the people were indented a little under each team
With Microsoft Team iPad App, the “Files” tab navigates the users to their browser (Safari), it should have a “Safari” icon to make it clearer:
Figure: Add browser icon so it’s clear for the user
