Create Word, Excel, PowerPoint using Office Web Apps in Office 365

By: Lincky in Office365 Tutorials on 2012-07-15  

Office 365 customers who sign up for E2 plan and above have Office Web Apps. Office web apps lets users create, edit and view office documents such as doc/xls/ppt using the browser even if they dont have Microsoft Office installed on their PC/laptop. However, to make this work, the administrator has to create some document templates in SharePoint before the users can use this. This is because, the documents they create are stored in SharePoint Online. To make Office web apps work the Administrator needs to do the following in SharePoint Online.

  1. First, follow the instruction to create Office templates to a document library so that you are able to select the type you want to create.http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-online-enterprise-help/add-multiple-office-templates-to-a-document-library-HA102409514.aspx
  2. Second, check and disable the IE Add-on named Office Document Cache Handler if you want to create doc directly from web portal. (bypass the steps if your client doesn’t install Microsoft Office product.)
  3. Finally, close all the IE windows and access to the Team Site again.
