Configure - Cloud Office document handling
The Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace Integration apps integrate the document-management features of Microsoft 365 SharePoint and Google Drive with CRM Online so that you can create, store, and find your documents within SuperOffice, and enjoy the benefits of both SuperOffice and Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace services all in one place.
Simply sign in to SuperOffice using your Microsoft 365 or Google login details and then open, edit and store documents in Microsoft 365 SharePoint or Google Workspace directly from SuperOffice.
To start using the Integration, setup consists of 2 steps:
How to configure the document templates for use, is documented in this article.
In standard CRM Online, all templates are stored in CRM Online storage ("SO Archive") and are set to save the files users create also in CRM Online storage ("SO Archive").
Even with the integration set up - you may still use "SO Archive" for your templates and documents - but then without the benefits of Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace services.
There is one selection for where to store the template: Store template in: and one selection for where to store the file created based on this template: Document stored in:.
For most users, the important choice is Document stored in: because this is the criteria for where the document is created, and how it is opened (Word Online / Google Drive).
Create a SuperOffice template for your cloud document integration
This will store the template in the Microsoft 365 cloud or Google cloud, and when the user uses this template - the document created will also be saved in the Microsoft 365 or Google cloud and opened with Google Drive or Word Online.
Templates are displayed as items in the Document - Template list and you link a template to SuperOffice CRM by entering it as an item in the list.
Open SuperOffice Admin, go to Lists, choose Document - Template.
Add template file:
- Enter a name.
- Set Store template in to either "Google" or "Office365".
- Choose the source of the new template (create, upload, or copy).
- Click Save.
Optionally edit the template name, if required, and click Edit to edit the template file itself.
Enter the required information in the Details and Languages tabs:
- Select Direction (outgoing or incoming).
- Choose where to store document created by this template: set Document stored in to either "Google" or "Office365".
- Enter a value in the Our reference (default) field using template variables. For example
authfor the sender’s first and last names.
- Optionally, enter a description.
Click Save. The Document template is now available in the CRM client:
To be able to edit the template in Google Drive or Word Online, it must be located in the Microsoft 365 / Google cloud. If this is not a requirement, the template can stay put in CRM Online storage (SO Archive) if you like.
If you want to change where the original templates store new documents created - you can do this by changing the original template property "Document stored in:". This will not move the template itself.
If you want to move the template from CRM Online storage (SO Archive) to Google / Microsoft 365, click Add in Document Template list -> Choose "Copy an existing document template file".
Use a descriptive title for the template, and use "Header" to group templates. This makes it easier for the end-user to understand which files save and opens the files in Drive / Word Online.
