App Launcher in Heimo

An application menu familiar from smart phones and computers is used for navigating in Heimo. This menu is known as the App Launcher. The App Launcher comprises all applications and tools available in the O365 environment. In the future, UEF’s own systems such as Moodle, Prima, Trip&Expense, MOT etc. will also be introduced to the App Launcher. 

Users can customise the App Launcher and add the tools and applications that are relevant for their own work. This makes all applications you use available in the same place – irrespective of your browser, computer or location.

The three sections of the App Launcher in Heimo are: HOME, NEW and ALL.
