Preparing for the End of Access Services on SharePoint Online
Access services and Access Web Apps, included in SharePoint Online and Office 365 plans, enabled hosting and sharing of Access Apps, features that some businesses depended on.. Available in the most economical of Office 365 plans, SharePoint Online Plan 1, Microsoft definitely hit the sweet spot in pricing. Therefore, Apps4Rent used to recommend SharePoint Online Plan 1 for customers who depended heavily on Access Apps.
Microsoft recently announced that Access Services and Access Web Apps no longer align with its business solutions and hence these features will be off the list and no longer available starting June 2017. Besides, by the end of April 2018 all Access apps will stop working on Microsoft Online platform.
In other words, your current Access Apps will work till April 2018. However, you will not be able to create any new Access Apps starting June 2017. This is a big problem for every user; particularly SMBs that depend on Access Apps.
