Liquid Daffodil is seeking testers for GimmalPoint on the Windows Store. The app (owned by GimmalPoint - http://www.gimmal.com/) enables SharePoint users to connect and view sites, documents, lists, libraries and more in multiple views. Billed as the "most full-featured" SharePoint solution available on Microsoft's desktop store, Liquid Daffodil is running into some problems with a handful of reports from users who can't seem to connect.
Since the team is unable to reproduce said issues, they're looking out to the community to get some testers on-board.
So what's the incentive for doing so? Glad you asked. Liquid Daffodil will be rewarding those who help out the team in correcting issues (that some are experiencing with GimmalPoint) by handing out Ultimate Liquid Subscriptions (worth $15.99), which will unlock all LD software on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 for free (including future apps released). All that's required is SharePoint.
The issue being some users can't connect to specific SharePoint environments. Here's how you can get involved:
- Download GimmalPoint from the Windows Store (link below)
- Fire an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Connect to your SharePoint environments, and if you can’t connect, work with the team to help test and resolve their connection issues
As well as helping a resident Microsoft platform developer out, you'll also be able to test out GimmalPoint if you haven't already done so. Regardless as to whether or not you utilise SharePoint 2010 or 2013, on-premise or in the cloud, GimmalPoint will synchronise your data on Windows 8 devices, including touch-enabled machines and tablets. It's pretty neat.
Best of all, you get to take advantage of all the apps Liquid Daffodil has published on both the Windows 8 and Windows Phone stores with the subscription. You can download GimmalPoint from the Windows Store for free, but be sure to get in touch with the team to get started with helping out.
