Join us in New Orleans for Microsoft TechEd North America June 3-6 and in Madrid, Spain for Microsoft TechEd Europe June 25-28. Scott McFadden and Jeff Conrad from the Microsoft Access product team will present on the new Access web app features available in Microsoft Access 2013 at this year's event in New Orleans. Harrison Shapley and Kevin Nickel from the Microsoft Access product team will share a similar presentation at the TechEd event in Madrid.
Access 2013 web apps are great for collaborating around a common set of data. When people work together in this way, the changes that one person makes to the data often require the attention of someone else. In this article, we'll describe a technique to build e-mail notifications into your Access 2013 web app using the power of SQL Server and a third-party service called Zapier. You can use this technique in your apps to make sure that the right people are informed when your shared data changes.
After you start organizing your
data with Access 2013 web apps, you may find yourself wishing to visualize or
summarize it. For example, imagine you are tracking your deal pipeline in Access, including when you expect to get paid and how much. Wouldn’t it be great if you could make a visual graph of these projections to help you make decisions? Read more to learn how you can do just that by connecting Excel directly to the SQL Server that stores your Access 2013 web app data.
As you manage your business in an Access 2013 web app, the amount of information it holds will naturally grow over time. The default views and navigation are great for getting started quickly, but eventually, wading through all of that information by scrolling through lists may not be the most efficient setup. Is there an easier way to create a different view of the data? In Access 2013 web apps you can create a customized filtered view in just a couple of minutes.
Access helps you store and track just about any kind of information--inventory, contacts, business processes, and more. In this week's webinar, you'll learn how to organize and manage your data, plus we'll preview the latest version of Access, including a big new feature.

What you will learn at Tuesday's webinar:
When files live on your computer's hard drive, there's a risk that they could be damaged, lost, corrupted or deleted. To protect against this, most savvy businesses make copies of important files in separate locations. In a similar way, Microsoft takes many precautions to make sure your Access 2013 Web Apps on Office 365 are backed up and always available. However, making your own backups is still a good idea. How can you make a copy of your apps that can be restored to a different location?
Access 2013 web apps, just like all SharePoint apps, can be packaged up into a special type of file known as an App Package. You can store backup copies of your databases in App Package files and restore them by uploading them to any SharePoint site. Knowing how to do this would also be useful if you wanted to move a database from one Office 365 account to another.
Access 2013 is all about enabling you to build data-centric business apps on the web. Frequently, the data you care about—a customer list, a product spreadsheet, or a legacy Access database—already exists somewhere else. How can you get this data into your Access web app? Obviously, copying each record would take a long time. That's where data import can be a huge time saver. Doug Taylor, a Program Manager on the Access Team, explains in a video.
Juan Soto and Ben Clothier, Access MVPs, share some of their ideas on how Access 2013 web apps can be used to solve real-world business problems. They outline how Access 2013 can be used to create mobile dashboards, track inspection reports, or manage work crew scheduling on the road. Take a look for some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.
Access 2013 web apps are great places to centralize your data. You can easily combine data from different external sources with the things that your app unique tracks. Lois Wang, a Program Manager on the Access team explains how your Access apps can connect to and display real-time data from SharePoint lists.
It's every IT manager's worst nightmare: thousands of Access databases are running wild in your organization and you don't know how to manage them. One CTO described compared the situation to feral cats wreaking havoc. Fortunately, Access 2013 features some great improvements that will increase the manageability of your desktop databases. Plus, moving forward, you'll be able to take advantage of Access 2013 Web Apps, which take manageability to a whole new level by leveraging SharePoint, SQL Server and SQL Azure. Steve Greenberg explains in a video.
