Overview

Sensei Project Solutions approached Evon Technologies, a web and mobile app development company, in May 2013 with an idea of a mobility task management app for Android, iPhone and Windows mobile platforms. The idea behind the mobile app was to allow project team members to update tasks and get access to timesheets on the go from Microsoft Project Server’s Project Web App (PWA).

The client wanted the app to support both Microsoft Project Server and Microsoft Project Online.

The client shared with Evon details of an app that was already developed for Office called the “Sensei Project Dashboard”. The application ran within Microsoft Project Professional 2013 and worked on the SenseiDev2013 environment that was being used for the Time Reporting app. This app used HTML5 and C# code and had implications for the new mobile app. The code had significant importance to draw an outline of the business logic that the client needed in the new app for Android Phones, iPhones and Windows 8  Phones.

The app’s idea was very exciting for Evon as it was going to be the first app to support Project Online to both view and update tasks on the three most famous mobile platforms, as we know them - iOS, Android and Windows.


Challenges

The Evon app development team had to cope with some challenges too while developing the app. First was to develop features for iPhones and Android phones capable of working with  Microsoft Project Online and Microsoft Project Server. Another big challenge was to support Project Online due to authorization issue and scarce documentation.


Research & Analysis

The Evon app development team did a lot of research to make the new mobile app for Android Phones and iPhones compatible with Microsoft Project Online and Microsoft Project Server. And as there is a famous saying, “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going”, the valiant efforts of the team finally paid off with an architecture that enabled hassle-free interaction of Android phones and iPhones with Project Online and Project Server.

The Evon app development team did not just leave any stone unturned to deliver the apps as per the client’s requirements but even exceeded the client’s expectation and won accolades from them.

Solution

The ‘Tasks’ section in Sensei Task Master allows a user to first select a task and then edit it to send progress to their respective project managers. The Time Sheet feature, on the other hand, helps users see all the work planned for the selected period, track actual work and update remaining work. It also allows to insert tasks from other schedules or time periods. Users also get an option to save or send the timesheet, along with recall and delete.

The app works with both Microsoft Project Online and Microsoft Project Server 2013 and 2010.


Industry Reception and Acknowledgements

Evon has developed a plethora of immaculate apps for various clients across the world since its establishment in 2006 and has earned a stature every app development company strives for. Microsoft’s acquisition of Sensei Task Master from the client is another corroboration of the coveted expertise Evon has achieved in app development over the years.

Evon believes in walking an extra mile with its clients to ensure they always thrive in their respective businesses. Making regular enhancements and updates for the app on client’s demands and ever-evolving requirements only adds a significant degree of veracity to the aforementioned statement.
