The Enhanced Sintel Apps Platform – SharePoint Framework (SPFx) Integration

At Sintel, we are constantly striving to enhance your experience and provide innovative solutions to meet your needs. With that in mind, we are delighted to announce the upcoming launch of our new platform, Sintel Apps, which will revolutionise the way you interact with our tools.

Why These Changes?

The landscape of digital tools is ever-evolving, driven by advancements in technology and the changing needs of users. In recent years, Microsoft has made significant strides in modernising its SharePoint platform through the introduction of SharePoint Framework (SPFx). This framework enables developers to create robust applications that seamlessly integrate with Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams.

As part of Microsoft’s commitment to investing in the SharePoint Framework and streamlining its extensibility options, the retirement of SharePoint Add-Ins has been announced. This retirement marks a shift towards more modern and flexible development solutions, aligning with the evolving needs of organisations in today’s digital era.

What Can You Expect with Sintel Apps?

With the impending retirement of SharePoint Add-Ins, we understand that you may have concerns about the future of your forms and applications. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce Sintel Apps—a new and improved platform that builds upon the strengths of Sintel Forms and Sintel BI.

What’s Changing?

Sintel Forms and Sintel BI are evolving into a unified platform known as Sintel Apps. This integration brings together the best features of both applications, offering you a seamless and comprehensive solution for your form-building and business intelligence needs. With Sintel Apps, you’ll have the power to create not just forms, but full-fledged applications tailored to your specific requirements. Whether you need to gather data, streamline workflows, or visualise insights, our platform has you covered.


Key Features of Sintel Apps:

  1. Unified Experience: Say goodbye to switching between different applications. Sintel Apps consolidates form creation, data analysis, and app development into one cohesive platform.
  2. Enhanced Integration: Easily embed data from your forms and apps into your existing web applications or intranet, seamlessly integrating Sintel Apps into your workflow.
  3. Compatibility: The new version of Sintel Forms is designed to be fully compatible with the existing version. While some updates to custom logic may be required, transitioning to the new platform will be smooth and hassle-free.
  4. Improved Functionality: We’re introducing a more intuitive workflow designer in Sintel Apps, making it easier than ever to create and manage your forms and applications. Additionally, the integration between Sintel Forms and Sintel BI has been enhanced, allowing for better collaboration and data analysis. For example, you’ll now have the ability to open forms in modal view directly from Sintel BI, streamlining your workflow.

What Does This Mean for You?

Rest assured, your investment in Sintel Forms is secure. As we transition to Sintel Apps, you’ll benefit from a more robust and versatile platform that empowers you to achieve your goals more efficiently than ever before.

Will the licensing model change?

No, although you will have the option to have both Sintel Forms and Sintel BI on one platform, we still believe you should only have to pay for what you use. If you only use forms, or only use BI, you will still only pay for licenses to those. However, if you use both, it will become apparent why integrating these apps together is a big bonus.

Get Ready for the Future with Sintel Apps!

We couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities that Sintel Apps will unlock for your organisation. With its intuitive interface, powerful features, and unmatched flexibility, we’re confident that Sintel Apps will become an indispensable tool in your toolkit.

Thank you for choosing Sintel as your trusted partner. We look forward to embarking on this exciting journey together.
