NITRO Studio FAQs2020-01-20T22:52:32+00:00


Considering NITRO Studio as your solution?
Here are a few questions answered!

What versions of SharePoint does NITRO Studio run on?2019-09-05T18:19:14+00:00

NITRO Studio runs on Office 365 (SharePoint Online) and on SharePoint 2013 and 2016 and 2019 (on-premises).

What are differences between NITRO Studio for Office 365 and for SharePoint 2013/2016/2019?2019-09-05T18:37:53+00:00

In Office 365, NITRO Studio includes administration pages where you can access all the apps for configuration purposes, as well as activate and deactivate components. NITRO Studio is a collection of apps developed using the latest Microsoft SharePoint add-in capabilities for cloud and mobile.

In SharePoint 2013/2016/2019 on-premises, NITRO Studio is a collection of web parts that are accessed through List Settings, Site Settings, and other places. It has an administration screen in the Central Administration where the web parts are licensed and updated. The web parts are developed using the latest Microsoft SharePoint programming capabilities for on-premises installations.

As far as the functionality provided, the two versions are on par as much as possible given the different environments (on-premises vs. online).

Do I need SharePoint online in my Office 365 tenant to use NITRO Studio?2019-09-05T18:40:52+00:00

Yes, but the good news is that most Office 365 subscriptions include SharePoint online.

What payment methods do you accept?2019-09-05T19:08:33+00:00

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards. We also can invoice and accept payment by check or electronic bank transfer, as follows:

Can I upgrade from a monthly subscription to an annual one?2019-09-05T19:10:55+00:00

If you are on a monthly plan, you can upgrade to our annual plan at any time.

What happens if we cancel? Are there any fees?2019-09-05T19:12:27+00:00

No. You can cancel at any time.The subscription will simply not renew at the end of your current subscription period and NITRO features will no longer be available. However, the SharePoint site, lists, and data will remain. For example, if you have a NITRO Form on a SharePoint list, the NITRO Form will not work once the subscription has ended, but all the data and items in the list will not be affected.

NITRO Studio is licensed as a monthly or annual subscription. It can be licensed for use in the full Tenant or Farm, or at site and site collection levels.
