The Digimaker Office Integration acts as a bridge between Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Digimaker Content Management.

Write your content in Office

This includes functionality like adding, editing and updating documents from Word, Excel and PowerPoint and adding editing and updating articles from Word and Outlook.


The add-on option for the Digimaker CMS version 5.1 developed for Microsoft Office 2003 lets content owners edit content in Microsoft Word, and provides full access to other Microsoft Office files stored in the document library inside Digimaker.

To provide a familiar environment for content owners, Digimaker has developed a plug-in module for Microsoft 2003, which provides full access to web articles from Microsoft Word, and access to the Digimaker Document library from other Microsoft Office applications.

With the Office integration module you can

  2. Open files from Digimaker or open Digimaker files from Microsoft Office Environment
  3. Work in familiar tools and write documents in Word and save to Digimaker

Digimaker can also leverage an existing document base, creating web articles from existing Word documents. This enables you to quickly populate a new web site with relevant content.


To facilitate structuring of an article written in Word for Digimaker CMS, the editing screen inside Word is split in three separate panes. Each of these panes corresponds to the article header, abstract and full text fields in the resulting web article.

Articles already in Digimaker can be opened in Word, and edited using the regular Word tools. After editing, the articles can be saved directly into the Digimaker CMS, providing version tracking and cross publishing as in the regular Digimaker CMS interface.

The Digimaker Office plug-in also lets users work with documents stored in the Digimaker CMS document library. All Microsoft Office applications are able to open corresponding documents from the document library directly in the application itself, similar to how a user normally opens a file from a disk drive.

The overall effect of integrating document and web content work processes is improving knowledge sharing in your organization, which enables you to be more competitive and respond quicker to market challenges.

All files saved in Digimaker also benefits from Digimaker Versioning standard functions.
