Is there a plan to include Office documents such as Word Docs or PowerPoints into the functionality of proofing without having to convert them to PDF for uploading them?

    Hi Michael,

    I know that Office documents is planned and you won't need to convert them to PDF's as I understand it.

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!

  • Hi Michael,

    I'm the product manager for proofing, and that is a high priority roadmap item for my team! We will keep you updated on when that will be launched.



    For now the best workaround is to save as a PDF on Word, PPT, and other file types.

    Thanks,

    Brian

  • Brian, 

    Do you have a timeline for the Microsoft file types being added to Proofing.  This could be an awesome platform for SOP development within one of my projects.

    Hi Brian, 

     

    Do you have a timeline for the addition of Word documents to Proofing?

    Thank you :)

  • Hi can we expect this functionality, I mean MsWord document proofing in the nearest time? If so, when?

  • Another vote for wanting this functionality.

  • Been looking for this functionality for some time. Any update on an ETA? We exchange Word documents internally, but especially with our Legal team, and they REQUIRE the Word file to edit/track changes.

    Hi @Dennis Wierzbicki

    @Brian Bosché shared the following recently.

    We will be supporting Document Proofing for Word docs and 50+ other file types later this summer, so this should help in your use case. You could also send them out as a PDF if the multiple approval route gets too complex, and then allow them to download the final completed word doc from attachments.

    Hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    That was in 2020...hopefully, it was completed?
