Clarizen integration with SharePoint 2013

Overview

Clarizen integration with SharePoint adds robust content management capabilities into the Clarizen user experience.  The integration is supported for all Clarizen item types (e.g. work items, cases, etc.) and allows viewing, creating, and editing SharePoint content (files, folders, sub-sites and sites) directly from Clarizen and linking them to Clarizen items. The linked SharePoint content appears in Clarizen, in the Files panel for the linked item.
