Accessing FYI from within Office

As well as creating documents directly in FYI, you can also access the FYI app from within Word, Excel or PowerPoint using the FYI Drawer. This is displayed by clicking the FYI icon in the Office ribbon menu.


The FYI Drawer displays on the right-hand side.

This gives you direct access to the filing details for the document in FYI and can be accessed when using Office on your desktop or in your browser. Refer to Displaying the Drawer in FYI, Outlook and Office.

Saving an Office Document to FYI
