The challenge for SharePoint Users
Endless searching for business apps or links
In today’s fast-paced work setting, endlessly searching for the right business app or link can really slow things down. We’ve noticed that SharePoint users typically face issues like:
- Wasting time trying to find specific apps or links for their tasks
- Not knowing about all the available tools and subscriptions they have available
- Depending on others to figure out which apps fit certain tasks, which impact productivity
- The lack of a single spot in SharePoint to neatly put together all business apps in a way that suits each user’s style and needs
My Apps from Sprocket 365

My Apps is a Web Part from Sprocket 365 that allows users to easily access and organise their business apps in one central place within SharePoint. It’s designed to make work more efficient by keeping frequently used tools accessible inside of SharePoint, including those apps that live outside of Microsoft 365.
