Microsoft Office

Qalyptus Cloud allows you to design reports with four options: HTML, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. To design Excel, Word, and PowerPoint reports, Qalyptus uses an Office add-in that works with the following Office versions:

  • Microsoft 365 desktop.
  • Microsoft 365 for the web.
  • Office 2021.
  • Office 2019 (except volume license).

Qalyptus Office add-in is necessary to design reports; it is hosted in the Microsoft Addins Store and installed automatically after opening a report template. When using Microsoft 365 desktop or Office, the add-in must be added to your Microsoft 365 or Office instance. If your organization allows the installation of Office add-ins from the store, you don't have to do anything on your part.

Otherwise, you can:

  • Use Microsoft 365 for the web to design the report (fully integrated into Qalyptus).
  • Or Deploy the Qalyptus add-in in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
  • Or Deploy the Qalyptus add-in Locally in Office Desktop options.
