Learn how to startStart in Solution Studio

Build the entire solution with a single tool

Every solution typically consists of three parts, the user interface, business logic, and data storage. Solution Studio is designed to let you build the whole thing from one solution design environment. You can design lists, libraries, forms, sets of actions, pages, styling, images, and more — without moving from product to product.

In particular, we've noticed most tools for SharePoint assume you already built and configured all of your lists and libraries. Well, skybow thinks that's an essential part of any solution -- so we take lists and libraries very seriously.

The starting point of most skybow solutions is a dossier, or case file. So you can open one form and see everything about a given item across multiple lists and libraries. It's really a set of interdependent SharePoint lists and libraries that form one or more master-detail relationships. When you combine it with data aggregation and/or metadata inheritance, you can make the data automatically do work you used to have to hard-code into forms or workflows.

Package. Deploy. Update. Repeat.

Unlike most low-code/no-code tools, Solution Studio assumes you’ll want to developa solution in one place, possibl test it in yet another place, and ultimatel deploy it to yet another place for production usage. Oh, and that you'll want to make changes later and test/publish those, too. And even create a catalog of solution templates. We make those things easy -- really easy.

You don't have to start from scratch, and you can make your work reusable by others

We provide several templates to get you started, and you can create more. Anything designed using Solution Studio can be turned into a template. Sharing templates is easy.

While the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, the parts are pretty great all by themselves. The following tools can be used within a Solution Studio solution:

What's it like to build something with skybow Solution Studio?

If you can create a SharePoint list and/or add Web Parts to a SharePoint page, you'll find Solution Studio quick and easy. The process often goes something like this:

  • Design your schema. These can be standalone lists/libraries and/or something we call a dossier. A dossier is a set of SharePoint lists/libraries linked together to behave like a database. You can view a master list item and all related detail items like one complete case file. We do the linking for you.
  • Build your forms. We'll actually help build them for you, including tabbed pages and master/detail lists. But you can take them much further from there.
  • Build your actions. These can be links on a page, buttons on a form, or scheduled actions. They can trigger a whole set of instructions that take place as a set.
  • Add extra functionality. Would you like totals to be calculated automatically? To generate a Word document containing all the content in a case file? To have custom pages, images, or Quick Launch links? You can do that, too.
  • Add any assets. This can include images, pages, list item content, library documents, navigation links, style and theme configurations, and more.
  • Package together a release.
  • Deploy that release package to your test or production environment using one of several available methods, the easiest of which is little more than one click.
