Manage QuickApps web part configurations centrally from a single site, reducing your time and effort spent on maintenance and updates. You can perform administrative tasks without elevated farm-level permissions, such as quickly searching and filtering on all web part instances to discover where they are being used and who’s using them, and making bulk updates to web part properties such as UI elements or skins.
Advantages over native SharePoint
- Manage all QuickApps web parts centrally from a single SharePoint page
- Avoid the need manually update multiple sites across multiple web parts using SharePoint Designer
- Easily make bulk updates to QuickApps web part string properties
- Easily navigate the SharePoint site collection hierarchy
- Search for one or more web parts
- Monitor QuickApps adoption by viewing each web part instance by site
Before installing QuickApps, ensure your system meets the following minimum hardware and software requirements:
- Software and hardware requirements for QuickApps are the same as those for SharePoint.
- For a complete list of SharePoint 2013 requirements, go to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx.
- For a complete list of SharePoint 2010 requirements, go to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485(v=office.14).aspx.
- QuickApps must be installed on one of the web front end servers. It does not have to be installed on all the servers in the farm.
- QuickApps requires administrator rights on the SharePoint server during installation. If your SQL Server is located on a different computer than the SharePoint server, ensure that you log in with a domain account that has administrative farm privileges.
- Although administrative tasks on SharePoint sites are optimized for Internet Explorer 8 or later, Microsoft SharePoint Server also provides rendering support for other browsers that are commonly used. To ensure that you have complete access to all the functionality, we recommend that you use Internet Explorer 8 or later for administrative tasks.
