Whether your team spends most of their workday in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook, you can quickly and easily utilize  document management without disrupting productivity. 


The great news is that Microsoft Office Document Management Integration comes standard with all versions of DocuXplorer. So if you have DocuXplorer installed, you already have the Microsoft Integration installed as well.

If you’re not not sure how to access the Microsoft Office Integration, check out the instructions below:

How to save a Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook file directly into DocuXplorer

  1. Click the DocuXplorer tab on the Quick Access Toolbar in a Microsoft Office program. Don’t see DocuXplorer in your Toolbar? 
  2. Select the action “Save in DX”
  3. Navigate to the chosen folder in the DX Library and click Ok.
  4. Tag the document with metadata by filling in the appropriate Index Set Fields, or use a Smart Capture template if this is a recurring document type, and click Save & Close.

You can access this record in DocuXplorer by navigating through the Library Tree, performing a search, or within the Microsoft program of your choice.
