By using the Cloud Business App template in Visual Studio, you can create apps for SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint on Office 365 that are optimized for adding and managing data.

To create a cloud business app

    The New Project dialog box opens.

  2. In the list of templates, expand the Visual Basic or Visual C# node, expand the Office/SharePoint node, choose the Apps node, and then choose Cloud Business App.

  3. In the Name text box, enter a name for your project, and then choose the OK button.

    The New Cloud Business App wizard opens.

  4. In the New Cloud Business App wizard, enter the Site URL for your SharePoint server or your Office 365 Developer site, and then choose the Finish button.

    The URL should take the form https:// MySite.sharepoint.com/sites/Developer/.
