With SP2013, is it possible to apply additional restrictions to what can be viewed by a user using a mobile device (specifically Windows Phone) as opposed to a desktop or laptop?

We can assume that the device is issued by the business (not BYOD) and hasn't been tampered with (so user-agent strings, etc will be as expected).


In sharepoint 2013, you have device channels which exactly do the same thing you need.

Device Channels is a mechanism that allows you to define a number of channels, map them to devices using user agent matches or custom logic, and associate different Master Pages to each channel.

  • Thanks, that partly answers my question. However Device Channels only apply to Publishing Sites. Is there a similar way to handle other sites, such as those containing lists and libraries? – Brongers Croste Jun 24 '14 at 8:53
  • In that case your only option is responsive web design. Check this spmatt.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/… – Garima Jun 24 '14 at 9:08
