BETA: Office Live Update 1.3

For those unaware of Office Live Workspace (, it’s a FREE document storage & productivity workspace that allows not only convenient online uploads & downloads of documents for storage “in the cloud” but also secure online collaboration between other people that want to access and edit these documents with you.  Sign up if you haven’t already.

Well, as you would suspect, the recently announced Office Web Applications (web-based versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and OneNote) are likely to appear side by side with Office Live Workspace providing smooth integration with documents store in the Office Live repositories.  So, if you want to stay plugged in, it’d probably be best to get used to Office Live Workspace and understand how it works with the existing Office 2003/2007 application suites.

The add ins allow you to access your workspaces directly from Office Word, Office Excel, and Office PowerPoint. The Office Live Add-in installs a new toolbar in Microsoft Office XP and Microsoft Office 2003 and new menu options in the 2007 Microsoft Office system.  (The picture to the right depicts the add-in’s appearance in Office 2007.
