Using sessions in a taskpane Office 2013 app RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am developing a task pane office app that has a log-in page and depending on the role of the logged in user, certain actions need to be taken through out the duration of the app's life while hosted within an Office 2013 document. What is the best way for doing something like this?

    One approach that I can think of is to have an Asp.Net MVC4 web application or a WebForms web application that loads in the App space. Since it can hold data in a session, I use that feature to store the logged in users details, which could range from Name, Roles, other session data, etc.

    Is this approach supported by the App framework or if not then what is the workaround?

  • Hi LB Mumbai,

    You can create MVC4 web application or WebForms, both are supported. To get the Sharepoint look and feel you can change your CSS as required.
