Disabling MS Office Integration

A new feature delivered with the ProjectWise SELECTseries 4 Refresh is the ability to enable or disable ProjectWise integration within your MS Office applications.  In the past, you could only disable the integration by re-running the ProjectWise Explorer installer and deselect the iDesktop integration for specific MS Office  product(s).  With the Refresh, you can now do this with a click of a button from inside the MS Office application.

But, where is it?  I will use MS Word as an example.  Simply open Word from your workstation and select the ProjectWise tab on the pull down menu.  Here you will find the Integration button, which is either set to ‘Enable’ or ‘Disable’, depending on how ProjectWise Explorer was installed on your workstation.

Office ButtonIf the ProjectWise integration was enabled, simply click the Disable button.  No need to hit ‘Save’ in MS Office.  Further, this setting is remembered the next time you start MS Word.  Lastly, this button is not available (it is greyed out) when opening a MS Office document stored in ProjectWise.

Remember, this is only available with the ProjectWise SELECTseries 4 Refresh.  To determine if that’s the version you have installed, open ProjectWise Explorer and do a Help > About ProjectWise Explorer.  If the commercial release is, you are good to go!
