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:

  • Windows 365 (desktop version)
  • Office 2021
  • Office 2019

Qalyptus Office add-in is hosted in the Microsoft Addins Store and installed automatically after opening a report template. If your organization allows you to install Office Addins from the store, you don't have to do anything on your part.

Otherwise, you can:

  • Deploy Qalyptus add-in in the Microsoft 365 admin center
  • Or Install the Qalyptus add-in manually using a manifest.
