Creating and Editing Documents Online

Online editing allows you to create and edit documents through Workplace Online by leveraging Google Docs or Office 365.

If you'd like to edit a document locally via Workplace Online, using an application on your machine, refer to Edit Documents Locally via Workplace Online.

Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel documents can be created, opened and edited even if you don't have Microsoft Office applications installed. Online editing also allows users to simultaneously work on documents.

To take advantage of online editing, you will need a Google account or a Microsoft Office 365 commercial or business account.

NOTE  Legacy Microsoft Office formats from 1997-2004 (.doc, .xls, .ppt) are not supported for online editing in Workplace. Only current (.docx, .xlsx, and .pptx) formats are supported.
