Saving to Office 365 from MS Word 2013

Hi Everyone

I have an Office 365 Sharepoint acount, upon which we built a Site that actually consists of several Site collections that we link to and from. We had to do it this way because of data restrictions in one site collection.

This works fine except when we are using Word 2013. Our word is signed in to our O365 account which connects to personal Skydrive and Main team site(which is the default site collection). However when we try and open or' save as' we cant find how to browse to any other site collection. We can see everything within the main collection including document libraries and subsites but nothing that is held in our 4 other site collections.

I would be greatful for some help.

Thanks
Shaun

When you are browsing a library, in the Ribbon on top you have the "Connect to Office" button. You can use it to add the library in question to "places" in Office apps.

Alternatively, the company administrator can "publish" them for all users, by going to the SharePoint admin center, User Profiles, My Site Settings, Publish Links to Office Client Applications. You can limit those to audiences if necessary.

Hi Vasilcho

I have "published" in User Profile, My Site Settings, Publish Links to Office Client Applications.
What I did was, Url of Site, Title, Type=Team Site, Target Audience=All Site Users.

This is now listed in Sharepoint admin but I cant find it when I go to MS Word_File_Save As.

Where should I be able to see this or am I missing something?

At the minute I See, File_Save as_ComapnySharepoint: Shauns Company Skydrive AND Company Team Site

Thanks for the help.

Yeah seems to not be working for me either. I'm on 2013 and I dont see the corresponding registry keys created

HKCU\Software\AppDataLow\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Portal

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Server Links\Published

HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Portal\Link Providers

(depending on how you provision this)

Will test it on 2010 machine when I get a chance, but something is fishy here.

I've just checked to see if I have those Reg Keys, I dont!

I'll start researching this also.

Ok, so seems you need to have each user press the "Connect to Office" button first, in order to create the first reg key. Then, it takes some time to actually populate the links to the second key. Not sure what exactly triggers it, tried logoff, restart, log out of Office 365 and Word, until it finally populated the list. You will notice a LinkPublishingTimestamp string appear under HKCU\Software\AppDataLow\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Portal when this is done.

Funny thing is I still cannot actually see the links under Save As in 2013 apps, while on the 2010 version they are visible :)


Anyway, read more about this here:

I found the same thing but can go one step further. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be actually how it works, but after I clicked connect all the links appeared under:

Favourites: Sharepoint Sites

They didnt actually appear in the Office product itself.

This is good enough for now as I can make it work. But will keep my eye out for integrating the link into Office.

Thanks for the help Vasilcho you saved my bacon with this one. :)
