Pervasent have now released Board Papers 2 to the App Store. This release builds on the strong foundation of the original release and adds some new features.

My full review of the previous version can be found here: http://www.sharepointdownunder.com/board-papers-by-pervasent-review/

Claims Based Authentication

This new release provides support for Claims Based Authentication.

Calendar Integration

In the new release, there is a prompt that the application needs access to the calendar. This feature isn’t fully active yet but needs to be enabled for the application to work properly. Pervasent are aware of this issue and have provided a work around.

If a user has denied access, access to the calendar needs to be set to On within Settings:
