Microsoft Office Integration
Easier access to the contents of files from the worlds most used business application suite.
Microsoft Office integration allows a Grooper user to leverage the native text of files generated in the Microsoft Office Suite such as Microsoft Word documents and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. This feature can pull the native text from and perform type-specific activities on these files.
Supported File Types
- Microsoft Word documents (.docx)
- Microsoft Excel spreadsheets (.xlsx)
- Microsoft PowerPoint presentations (.pptx)
- Outlook Message (.msg)
Note: This feature does not support older, non-XML file types (.doc, .xls, .ppt, etc.).
How to Use
To make use of this feature, ensure that Microsoft Office is installed on the machine running Grooper Design Studio.
Getting a Result
Prior to Grooper 2.9 files from the Microsoft Office Suite had to be rendered (essentially a "print...") to PDF in order to view contents and use activities more effectively. This was accomplished with the Render activity. The Render activity still exists in Grooper. However, the Microsoft Office integration provides greater functionality.
