Introduction to Microsoft for the Web: A Collaborative Document Editing Tool

Microsoft for the Web is a collaborative editing tool that allows the ability for users to edit a document as a group inside of ZenQMS. This collaborative editing tool will allow all edits to a document to occur in the application in a controlled manner. 

Authors, Document Category Editors and Administration: Account Super Users will be able to initiate document editing sessions on "draft", "draft reviewed" and/or "reviewed" documents by clicking the collaborative editing symbol "WOPI symbol.png":

Once the collaborate icon "WOPI symbol.png" is selected, a pop up will appear. The file name that will be opened for editing in the editing session will be displayed, as well as, the button to enter the session. Click the grey button to start the editing session:

NOTE: Users can use the collaborative editing tool on files that are in Excel, PowerPoint, or Word Document format. Whenever a file is edited during the editing session it may take up to 5 minutes for the changes to be visible in ZenQMS.

The collaborative editor will open in a new tab. You can share this link with users to join the editing session:

All collaborative editing activity is captured on the document audit trail under the "comments" section:
