Note: A server version is also available that supports IE and other browsers and doesn’t require individual users to install anything, please contact us if you are interested.
FlyView is dynamic menu that is generated at runtime. It installs in seconds and works straightaway, just add FlyView to Chrome or Intent Explorer and login to your SharePoint or Office 365 site and it will be at the top of the page ready to go. A server version is also available that follows ‘Install Once and Access’ from anywhere with centralized control.
Are there any security concerns?
No. It is completely safe to install and use FlyView; it works in read-only mode, doesn’t update server data and cannot read anything except what you are allowed to do by the SharePoint Admin (it uses your permission model).
