Work Management Service provides a functionality to aggregate tasks to a central location on SharePoint Server. Users have a possibility to view and track their to-dos and tasks, which can come from SharePoint lists, Project Server or Microsoft Exchange. But, in today's heterogeneous world, it can easily happen that the leading PM/tasks solution is not one of the above mentioned products, but some non-Microsoft ERP or CRM solution, or even personal tasks management systems like Remember the Milk, or any other of numerous possible options.
This development session will show how to expand, adapt and tailor the Work Management Service, to include external sources into task aggregation. It will show how to leverage Work Management Service API, to add even more features and fine tuning to the system. On the end, it will be shown how to sync it all with mobile devices.
That way, Work Management Service can become a powerful tool for employees to manage and consolidate tasks from various sources, Microsoft and non-Microsoft, and to have an easy access and overview over their tasks, through their MySite environment and/or mobile devices.
