Maybe you've heard about connecting to SharePoint from your favorite Office applications but you're not sure how it works.  Or maybe you don't know about this capability.

Inspired by a training video that showed how to connect SharePoint libraries to Office, this blog post - created by our counterparts in the SharePoint team, steps through the process for 4 use cases, including:

  • Updating a SharePoint library document from an Office application
  • Sharing or publishing a new document from an Office application to a SharePoint site library.
  • Inserting images, videos, and audio files from a SharePoint Asset Library into Office documents. ​
