I need to... The App

The I Need To app is a replacement for what we had in 2010 called the 'I need to' web part. This app allows you to take that functionality a step further by easily grouping similar links together.

Privacy Notice: This SharePoint app does NOT collect or transmit user information.


  • Allows for link grouping
  • Allows for sorting of groups/links
  • Allows for Active/Inactive links for time temporary or 'seasonal' type links without having to always recreate.
  • Open links in new window or current window.


After you have installed the app you will have a new app in your site (below).

  1. Click on the app to open the App administration page.

  2. From this page, you simply add links to your list as needed using the custom list.

  4. Now we need to edit a host web page and add an app part to your page.
