I am a humble Sharepoint Admin tasked with researching the use of tablets for my workplace, we have an on premises 2013 deployment. I'm not certain that this is the correct forum to post this question, but since I'm a regular user of this site it seems like the natural place to start. I've tried researching "Sharepoint-Tablet" but have not found much info except this post.
Can a tablet be used on-site to connect to the company Sharepoint intranet? Can it read and edit Sharepoint forms, upload data back to Sharepoint? Would users log on using their standard desktop credentials?
Is the Sharepoint App necessary for use on-site or is it perhaps intended for off-site mobile use?
We use Sharepoint for many things, including our document management system. We store machine, safety and training documentation in Sharepoint already.
There is a project to investigate going 'electronic only' for documentation. There is a requirement to keep machine documentation on the production line - currently each machine in the line has printed documents. We would like to replace the paperwork with tablets instead. The tablet would be used to display machine documentation. A tablet would also be used to fill in forms and upload to Sharepoint. I found this link for form filling.
