More IBM Connections Social Features Now Available Inside Microsoft Office

View Comments
As you may know, we are now releasing new updates to the desktop plug-ins on a monthly basis. This month's release brings some cool new features to those of you working with Microsoft Office Desktop apps (even if you use the desktop apps with Office 365).

For some time now, we've had integration into Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook) via the ribbon.  Today, we've added new functionality to the ribbon.

With the new features, you can now do the following directly from Microsoft Office:

  • Lock a file to prevent others from editing while you make changes
  • Share the file and add others as readers or editors
  • View version history
  • View download history/audit log
  • Like, pin, and follow

Check out this quick 2 minute demo that I created to show some of the new functionality:

To download the latest plug-in you can get it from Apps - Downloads on your cloud deployment, or from our app catalog here.
