Now Edit Google Spreadsheets using MS Excel
Do you like the cool features of Google docs spreadsheets but too comfortable with MS Excel’s UI? Well, the supercool OffiSync add-in is for you. It is developed for Oudi Antebi an former marketing manager at Microsoft.
How OffiSync Google Docs add-in for MS Office works?
Once you finish the installation of the addin you will see a new ribbon in the corresponding applications (word, excel and powerpoint)
When you want to open a google doc, just hit the open button, select the document you want to open and bingo, it is available for editing right inside excel.
You can even try options like collaboration, sharing from excel.
The limitations of OffiSync:
Google has some very cool functions like GoogleFinance(), ImportHtml(), ImportXml() etc. using which you can build a stock portfolio tracker, Webpage monitors, RSS to Excel converter. But these functions don’t seem to work properly when you open the document in Excel using OffiSync.
Also, when you have the addin installed, Excel takes more time to open as it needs to connect to google everytime you run office.
What do you think about the OffiSync add-in ?
