The Add-in for Microsoft Office allows you to easily access images stored in QBank and use them in either Word documents or PowerPoint presentations. This article explains both how to install and use the QBank for Office Connector.
Setting up the QBank for Office Connector is straightforward - just run the setup program you have been provided with by QBank. The connection details for your QBank installation are embedded in the setup file, so after installing, you are ready to go. Please note that if you are not allowed to install programs on your computer, you may need to get in touch with your local IT support to have them install the program for you.
Using the Connector
After installing the connector, you will notice a new tab and ribbon within both PowerPoint and Word (A), as well as the Mediapicker (B). The functionality is identical whether you are using PowerPoint or Word.
Click the fold-out menu (C) to see folders and categories. Click any folder name or asset category and the mediapicker will show only the content within. If you know what image you are searching for, enter the search criteria in the search box (D) and hit the Search button.
When hovering over an image you will see a menu (A) with three options: View, Crop and Use. If you want to use the image as it is, just click "Use" - the image will be placed onto your slide. If you however want to use only a part of the image, click Crop. For more information about the image, click View.
The image placed within your document will always be 1024 pixels in width, which is sufficient for screen presentation.
