Adding and editing SharePoint sites

Why should I add a SharePoint site?

To start working with harmon.ie – browse through the SharePoint sites, upload documents to SharePoint and find people – you must add at least one SharePoint site.

To add a SharePoint site:

Adding a SharePoint site

  1. Tap the Views menu () > Sites ().
  2. Tap the Add Site icon () to configure your site:
  3. Enter the Address (URL) for the SharePoint site that you want to add. Both the standard HTTP and secure HTTPS protocols are supported. This text field must contain the protocol prefix http:// or https://.
  4. If you have already configured another SharePoint site with the same credentials, you can copy the credentials from that site:
    1. Tap the Copy Credentials button.
    2. Tap the SharePoint site from which you want to copy the credentials.
  5. Otherwise, select the Authentication Mode:
    • Automatic to use the User and Password entered below to connect to the SharePoint site.
    • Browser to delegate authentication to the browser. Use this option if Automatic fails.
  6. If you selected the Automatic authentication mode, enter the User and Password to access the site. If needed, include a domain name in the form user@domain.
  7. Tap Save to add the site or Cancel to cancel the operation.

Note: If harmon.ie fails to connect to the site, you are prompted to contact the harmon.ie support team for help. Tap Contact Support to open a new email message to harmon.ie support, with the harmon.ie log file attached to it.

Tap to sync your sites and favorites

To disable sites sharing:

Tap the Views menu () > Settings () > Locations, and slide the Share Locations > Sites and Favorites switch to Off.

Note: Turning sites sharing off disables favorites sharing as well.
