Accessing app part's configuration data from start page RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a Sharepoint-hosted app. Users can configure the app part using the edit pane. Now, I would like the start page (full immersion experience) to use this configuration data as well and update automatically.

    App part and start page use different aspx pages/js files.

    How can I access the edit pane's data from the start page?

    Thanks, Alex

  • Hello,

    Not possible, sorry. The configuration of the webpart is only available to the part itself.  An alternative is to provide your own configuration mechanism/pages/storage that doesn't relay on webpart configuration; a couple of apps on the store do that and in some cases they can provide a friendlier inline experience.
