SubSite Tiles

SmartData Software & Reporting Services Inc.
App that automatically creates navigation for a Parent site and its Subsites: Tenant License.

SubSite Tiles automatically provides security-trimmed navigation for your Subsites and Parent Site, displaying each one as a touch-friendly tile. By touching or clicking on a tile, any user can easily navigate to the subsites they use on SharePoint.

Simply add the SubSite Tiles App Part to any page and it auto-generates a Clickable Tile for each subsite as well as the Parent Site. Comes with pre-set Tile images or you can use your own.

This app is touch-friendly for mobile devices. Enables you to use the same browser interface to navigate your SharePoint sites for mobile and tablet as you do on your desktop.

Automated and Easy to Integrate

Simple to set up and is deployed on a site collection in a single five-minute installation. It can be uninstalled just as easily. Activate on a site-by-site basis, since control is at the site admin level. Users can add it when editing a page just as they do other apps or webparts. Uses the familiar out-of-the-box SharePoint interface to edit, and is similar to the Promoted Links app that comes with SharePoint. SubSite Tiles dynamically adds new tiles as new subsites are added to the site collection, deletes the Tile when the site is deleted or if the user no longer has permission to access. Note: Changes may take up to 1-2 days depending on your search settings. When rendering on a subsite, an 'UP' button Tile provides a link up to that site's parent; if added to the top site level of a site collection, the button does not display.

Mobile-Friendly Navigation

Larger, visually distinctive tiles make navigating subsites much easier on mobile devices. Tiles are easier to use on touch-based devices.

A Visual Tile-Based Display

Our app gives site owners and admins a quick and easy way of presenting subsites in a more visual and user-friendly format. Themed, image-based Tiles help users create visual associations of which subsites lead where, speeding up navigation and enhancing the user experience. Allows you to provide an alternate way to get to subsites and use the global or top navigation bar for other links.

Your Own Company Themes and Branding

SubSite Tiles allows users to choose from the pre-set images or upload their own images to match their corporate look and feel. Using your own images is as simple as adding items to a list.

Easy Setup

Setting up SubSite Tiles is a quick and easy process. The app is extremely intuitive and simple. After the installation, SubSite Tiles automatically compiles links on your personal SharePoint site and organizes your navigation in a visual format.

Note: This app uses SharePoint Search to retrieve the list of sites for the tiles. Changes such as new sites or renaming may require a short period of time to elapse before they appear in the Tiles.
