7.6 Enabling Users to Edit Vibe Documents with Microsoft Office

Users can edit Vibe documents with the Novell Vibe Add-in for Microsoft Office by simply installing and configuring the Vibe Add-in. Users can browse to documents, edit them, save them to Vibe, and much more, all directly from Microsoft Office. For more information, see the Novell Vibe Add-In Quick Start.

To allow users to co-edit documents, you must modify the access control settings for the Team Member role to allow team members to edit entries that were created by other team members:

  1. In Vibe, click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the page, then click the Administration Console icon .

  2. Under System, click Configure Role Definitions.

  3. On the Configure Role Definitions tab, in the Currently Defined Roles section, expand Team Member.

  4. Select Modify Entries, then click Apply.

    This adds the Modify Entries right to the Team Member role. For more information about roles and the rights that are associated with them, see Section 2.4, Managing Roles to Refine Access Control.
