In this article I’ll explain how to embed an Office 365 Word, Excel or Powerpoint Document into the embeds page of a Project.co project.
I’m going to use an Excel document for this but the same process works with all 3 Office 365 document types.
With your document open click the “Share” button at the top right hand side of the page.
Then in the share box make sure you have the link sharing options set to allow the right people to access the document.
Note: This is very important because if someone tries to access the embed but doesn’t have the correct link sharing permissions then they won’t be able to access the document in Project.co.
Once you have your link sharing settings set you can click on the “Copy Link” button at the bottom left of the pop up. This will copy the link to your clipboard.
Now, navigate back to the embeds page of the project you want to embed this document.
Click on “Embed Item” at the top left of the embeds page to embed a new item. Choose “Microsoft Excel” from the select in the pop up. Then enter a name for your document and paste the Excel sharing link. This will look as follows:
Your Excel document will now appear in the embeds list.
You can now click on the “Options” button for the embed and then click “Open” and the Excel document will be opened inside your Project.co project.
