  • Setting eight different paths to save files – The Add-in allows users to set eight different paths for saving the files which include Google Drive, Dropbox, Gmail, network paths, and local paths.

  • Auto-save the files – The user can enable autosave with a certain time interval. At the specified time interval, it will simply auto-save your file at the mentioned paths.

  • The shared setting for all three Office Applications – Settings between Word, Excel and PowerPoint can be shared so that the user does not have to configure each application separately.

  • Detects Dropbox – It detects the Dropbox folder and sets it as a path.

     

  • Keeping a history of files – If this option is enabled, it will create a copy of a file with a time-stamp at every interval, so that users can track the changes in the file.
