Microsoft 365 app – See what kind of apps can be built

Tim Lauenroth

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we experience the diversity of Microsoft on a daily basis. The blog entry from Microsoft’s tech community describes very well which possibilities M 365 offers beyond the platform in terms of additional integration of applications. 

„ Microsoft 365, previously known as Office 365, is Microsoft’s productivity cloud, that organizations use for communication and collaboration. 250 million users work with Microsoft 365 creating files, sending emails, meeting, reading information stored in Microsoft 365, and more.”

Endless potential 

The high number of users shows the potential that Microsoft 365 offers. At the same time it represents the existing added value for all users. Beyond the broad offering, M 365 now offers the possibility to extend apps standalone or as an extension of M 365. The article by Waldek Mastykarz describes interesting extensions and the possibilities of adapting different applications in M 365. 

„ First of all, you can build custom apps. These can be mobile apps, web apps, desktop apps, device-native apps, workflow automation, or scheduled processes.”

The timeghost software benefits from the diverse usability that is possible within M 365. With our time tracking tool, we extend and optimize the user experience of all M 365 – users. Among other things, we’ve built a feature into the software that enables Microsoft Teams calls for the timeghost feed. This allows you to easily assign calls and meetings to the relevant projects. 

Possibilities with our time tracking tool 

„You can build these apps using any programming language and run them on any platform you want. You choose how you distribute and operate them. In short: you own the technology stack and the full user experience.“

This freedom allows applications to work together smoothly. We took advantage of this and gave users the option to configure the software with SharePoint. Through the integration, all SharePoint files that you are currently working on in the respective project can be directly transferred to the feed. 

Perfectly adapted to the user  

The main attention was focused on developing a software that is adapted both to M 365 but, above all, to the needs of the users. The work of each employee is optimally tracked in each area. For example, the recorded working hours can be clearly displayed via the dashboard for any time period. In addition to the dashboard, additional functions like exporting the recorded hours to Excel are possible. 

How to get the timeghost Teams App? 

You only need to install the timeghost Teams App directly from the Teams Store in the application. You can find a manual on how to do this right here. The application includes all features that you know from the web client and since you use your Office 365 account in order to access timeghost you’re set and done in only a few seconds. 

Try it yourself
