Signing In

Top

To get started with this Add-In/App you need to connect it with your existing Microsoft 365 Work or School account or with your Personal Microsoft Account. Follow these steps:

Please note:

If your Office application supports SSO (Single sign-on) you will not see this welcome screen and be directly signed in to the officeatwork Add-in/App with the same account you signed into your Office application.

Wizard Welcome Page
  • Click on the 'Connect' (1) button.

  • Sign-in using your Microsoft 365 (Work or School) account or your Personal Microsoft Account.

  • You might be asked to consent to the Add-In accessing your data. This step might have been taken care of by your internal IT department in advance. In that case you will not be asked.

  • Done.

Please note:

The actual sign in experience is provided by Microsoft. officeatwork does not offer any user accounts. Users must use their existing accounts to sign in to the Add-In.

Please note:

For Office application versions that do not support automatic SSO (Single sign-on), users will have to repeat this sign-in step periodically, dependent on their Azure AD settings. Usually, this Azure AD setting is set to 90 days. This setting can be changed by each customer individually in Azure AD.

Accounts

This Add-In accepts Microsoft 365 Work or School accounts. It also accepts Personal Microsoft Accounts including GitHub accounts.

Consenting

The first time you connect the app, you might be asked to consent to the permissions required by the app. Please go through those permissions carefully and grant consent as the App requires these permissions to function. If you do not grant consent, the app will not work for you.

Please note:

Your IT administrator can pre-consent on behalf of all users. That way you and your fellow users would not have to consent each individually. Your IT administrators can learn more about pre-consenting here.

Wizard

Top
Wizard Personalize

Use «Personalize» to make your personal selection and input for your document so it is purpose fit for the specific intent of your individual documents. A thoughtful designed document will display its fields grouped by contexts like From, To etc.

Please note:

If the Wizard shows any kind of error message you should reach out to the person that created the template your document is based on. You should be able to use the help menu to do that.

Fields

Text

Document Wizard Text Field

A «Text» field allows you to enter any text into the field. Just click into the field and enter your text. You can also use copy and paste within the field.

Item

Document Wizard Item Field

An «Item» field will allow you to select from a list of items. To select an item just click into the field. A flyout will appear allowing you to pick and search your items. The search option will not always be available, depending on the data connected to the «Item» field. After selecting an item the flyout will automatically close. To clear the selected item just click the «Delete» icon at the end of the field. To change an existing item just click on it to bring back the flyout.

User

Document Wizard Item User

A «User» field will allow you to select from a list of users. To select a user just click into the field. A flyout will appear allowing you to pick and search for a specific user. After selecting a user the flyout will automatically close. To clear the selected user just click the «Delete» icon at the end of the field. To change an existing user just click on the user to bring back the flyout.

Connecting

Wizard Connecting

Some fields like the «Item» or «User» field are connected to an external data source. Sources you have not recently used will present a «Connect» button enabling you to allow the «Wizard» Add-In to connect to the data source sourcing that specific field. In this case you first need to click the «Connect» button and go through an authentication flow to be able to see the items for that field.

Tip: When copying and pasting content into your document you might also include some placeholders that are customized to work with the «Wizard». To make those placeholders visible to you in the «Wizard» you just need to reload the pane by clicking the «Personalize» button in the Word ribbon.

Embedding Add-In

Top

You might want to have the Wizard Add-In open together with your document. To do that you can 'embed' the Add-In into your document. This makes most sense with documents you often need to make changes to via the Wizard, or for templates that should show the Wizard automatically (once), so that the user can personalize the new document to his/her needs.

Open Add-in together with a document

You might want this app to open alongside your document automatically. To actively embed the Add-In into your currently open document, please follow the steps below:

Document
  • Open the Add-In 'Settings' menu.

  • Click on the 'Document' option.

  • On the 'Document' pane, choose your Embedding option (1).

  • Click 'Save' to save your changes.

Attention:

Please be aware that automatically launching an app, together with a document, will only work if:

  • The user opening the document, with the embedded app, has the app available already, and,

  • The Add-In deployment method is the same for both the user who embedded app and the user opening the document, with the embedded app.

For example, if one user acquired the app from the Office Store, and the other user acquired the app via centralized deployment, the embedding will not work for both users. It will only work for the user who embedded the app in the document. To avoid this platform limitation, please ensure that all your users in your organization acquire the app using the same deployment method, preferably using centralized deployment.

Embedding options

Never

Choose this option if you do not want the Add-In to open together with your document (default setting).

Once

Choose this option if you want the Add-In to only open the next time you open your document, after that it shall not open automatically anymore. 

Always

Choose this option if you want to have the Add-In open together with your document all the time. Note that the Add-In will also open if you close your document with the Add-In closed and then re-open the document.
