I recently started looking at the free Colligo Briefcase Lite to see if I can access my Office 365 content on my iPad, even when I’m offline. In this post, I’ll share some of my first experiences with the app.
Note: This is the free, limited version. Colligo Briefcase Pro offers more functionality, see the website for more details.
After having installed the App from the AppStore, I started to add a site:
After adding the URL (e.g. http://teamsite.sharepoint.com), and the corresponding User Name and Password that I use to access Office 365 (leaving Domain empty), I was prompted by the familiar Office 365 authentication dialog.
I entered the required details again (maybe I would not have had to enter it into the Colligo Briefcase dialog at all, as these don’t seem to work with Office 365’s special authentication mechanism?), and the app began synchronising my content straight afterwards:
This is as far as I got with testing the app. I’ll slowly use the app more and more, once I’ve got more to report I’ll do a follow-up posting.
