Maintenance of existing Plugin required for Word,Excel & Outlook. WE HAVE AN EXISTING PLUGIN THAT OPERATES WITH THE PARAMETERS BELOW, BUT WILL NEED TO BE REVISED OR COMPLETELY REDONE - YOUR THOUGHTS ARE WELCOMED
A word plugin exist currently that needs to be enhanced &
Similar to word plugin, Excel & Outlook plugin needs to be developed
Existing Word Plugin:
It has additional Menu apart from Microsoft's standard menus.
This Menu has below functionality:
1. Authentication - Accepting userName , Password and passing it to webservice to Autenticate & show response accordingly.
2. Upload a File - currently opened file is provided to webservice to be uploaded on server.
3. Add placeHolders - Calls a webservice to show placeHolders that are added to word file
Current Word Module
1. One more custom Menu Button , clicking it would call a webservice with current word file that would return a
another word file as a response that needs to be shown to user.
Webservice I/p: Word File as a stream(word file with which this menu was clicked),number(input from user through textbox)
Webservice O/p: Another word file as stream
2. Some Minor changes. A full list will be given once we start the detail walkthrough.
New Excel & Outlook Plugin:
Need Authentication & file uploading functionality through Outlook & excel
Custom menu would appear on opening a mail from outlook:
2 options :
Clicking it would popup a window asking for username & [login to view URL] it would
call a web service that would authenticate & create a session server side returning some
session parameters that would be provided by client code in subsequent requests.
It would show a message whether login successful or not.
This has been already built in word plugin.
2. Upload a file
when a user opens a mail from outlook or a excel file, this menu would appear apart from existing Standard MS menus
clicking it would call up another web service providing the below parameters:
- Number - User would input this number through textbox provided as part of this plugin
- Outlook file (.msg) or Excel File(.xls /.xlsx/....) - document from which save button was clicked.
This code should be portable. It should be easy to provide these built custom menu to any new system.
If possible need a single file that will install all the components on the target system for all three application - Outlook, Word and Excel. If not, individual set-up files are good too.
Must be compatible with office 2010 forward and O365.
We have the source code but require some maintenance on an ongoing basis. software is written in .NET.
