Quick-edit of Office documents made easier

Small but important enhancement for those who work with Office documents in Next®.

Until now, you have had to open the Document Info window in order to edit your  Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents from within Next®.

With this enhancement, you now have an easy to use Edit document icon in your toolbar. 

Simply click Edit document in the toolbar. 

Easier and more efficient

Without the Edit document in your tool bar, the process is rather cumbersome.

  1. Open the Info panel.
  2. Open the Files panel.
  3. Find the actual file.
  4. Click the small pencil icon. 

Possible, but not exactly easy.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and are happy to deliver the right solution now. Better late than never.

By the way. If your document in Next® has more than one editable file, Next® will ask you what file you want to edit.


The business log

When you edit a document, the business log is updated.
