Laserfiche 8.2 has been updated to integrate more closely with Microsoft Office. From within Office applications, you can more easily save documents in Laserfiche. You can also work with Laserfiche metadata in the Office applications.
The features described below are available in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Outlook still uses the “Send to Laserfiche” item from the File menu.
- Note: Since this is a preview, the details and appearances of certain elements may change between now and the final release.
Sample features of the updated Office integration:
- Ribbon tab or toolbar button: There is now a Laserfiche tab in the Ribbon in Office 2007 or 2010 applications, and a Laserfiche toolbar button in Office XP or 2003. You can use these to save and modify documents in Laserfiche.
- Manage Laserfiche metadata from Office programs: When an Office document is saved in and opened from Laserfiche, you can use the Laserfiche Properties button to manage templates, fields, and tags from within the Office program. Note: this feature is not currently available in Outlook.
The Office integration update includes additional features as well as those shown here. You can try them out when Laserfiche 8.2 is released.
