Taxonomy -driven navigation helps customers with complex managed metadata. Retention and sensitivity labels support helps with compliance (see compliance section below).

Folder Search App helps to navigate across folders and document libraries of the site. The app is accessible right in the document libraries tool bar. Click on "Folder Search" button to open Folder Search panel to find and navigate to the right folder in one click.

Microsoft Teams

When using Microsoft Teams, the end-user is always working in the channel's context, essentially creating a silo. The experience is great when you are a member of couple teams with a few channels but quickly degrades to unmanageable, when gaining access to more channels and teams. Accessing documents is even more challenging, as you have to switch to the Files tab within the channel.

Navigator 365 provides the following document-centric capabilities in Microsoft Teams:

  • A single workplace to view/navigate documents across channels, teams, and SharePoint sites.
  • Showcase new/updated documents across teams/channels/SharePoint.
  • Custom dashboards aggregating across a particular selection of teams/channels/sites.
  • Increased data/document discoverability.
  • Proactive duplicates detection.
  • Taxonomy-driven navigation across documents.

Personal App / Dashboards

Navigator 365 Personal Apps allows creating the personalized private dashboards, enabling users to:

  • Quickly aggregate documents across selected teams, channels, and sites, effectively enabling custom "themed" dashboards (i.e., IT dashboard, HR dashboard, "Project X" dashboard, etc.)
  • Group data by teams, channels, folders, sites, contributors, managed metadata, enterprise keywords, and more.
  • Immediately see new/updated documents and team contributions.
  • Bring data from different Microsoft Teams and SharePoint sites together on one screen.
  • Easily discover and navigate through documents across different repositories.
  • Search and refine aggregated data.


Navigator 365 enables users to explore classified content (respecting permissions). Filter and group by sensitive info type, sensitivity or retention label to see how many items are classified, where they're stored, and drill down even more to inspect the actual document. With no need for any special permissions or licensing, these capabilities enable departments to review and control their compliance.


Navigator 365 helps to navigate through the OneDrive documents shared with you.


Navigator 365 serves as a great SharePoint replacement for OpenText Custom View Search and Search Results widgets.
