On October 26th 2018, the Microsoft Office Online integration was released to SME's US and EU based SaaS customers.

Please see our blog post on information about the release.

Microsoft Office Online is an online office suite offered by Microsoft, which allows users to create and edit Microsoft Office documents using just your web browser. It supports editing of document formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

The File Fabric support editing documents stored on any of our 60+ storage platforms through MS Office Online.

  • A US or EU based SaaS account (storagemadeeasy.com or eu.storagemadeeasy.com)
  • An active Office 365 Subscription.
  • Office Documents in modern formats (like .docx, .pptx, .xlsx etc)

Microsoft Office Online will not be enabled in your account by default, therefore, it is necessary for you to enable it.

It must be enabled by your Organization Admin account. Once logged in, visit the Organization menu and select Policies.

From the left-hand menu, select User Interface.

From the available options under FM allowed viewing/editing options, you will need to ensure that Microsoft Office Online Editor is checked, as highlighted below.

Then press Upload Policies to save the changes.

Now the MS Office Online editor will be available to your users.

The MS Office Online integration provides both a single-user edit mode, as well as a multi-user real time collaboration edit mode for different document types.
