Layer2 Delivers Term Set Glossary App for SharePoint 2013 in Newly Launched Microsoft Office App Store

​Microsoft SharePoint technology is increasingly used as a business collaboration platform on-premise or in the cloud, to connect and empower people. But with the clutter of information inside enterprises today, effective findability is fast becoming a necessity. Users are asking for it and executives are demanding it as “instant information” becomes increasingly critical to business productivity. The newly released Layer2 Term Set Glossary App for SharePoint helps to close this gap.

A-Z index as well-known from technical books – now available for SharePoint portals

​The app offers additional navigations that are well-known from technical books, now based on existing taxonomies, terms or hashtags managed in the SharePoint Term Store.
