An Office Extension we created for Rainer Förster AKTENSERVICE GmbH

Tags: office, outlook

We built an Office Extension that allows a User to upload the current Document as well as Emails to a Online Document Management System available at

The Extension is available in multiple applications of the Microsoft Office 2010 Suite:

  • Outlook
  • PowerPoint
  • Word
  • Excel
  • Visio
  • Project

The Upload itself is a combination of Windows BITS-Services (Background Intelligenge Transfer Services) and a Webservice that controls the Metadata.

The Application is built on top of Add-In-Express tools and is delivered as Setup-Package.
