I've been asked if there is a module or add-on for EPi 7 CMS that will provide the *same* functionality in EPi 7 CMS that the previously built in Microsoft Office Integration provided for EPi 6 and EPi 5?
In other words:
Is there an alternative for this:http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Tech-Notes/EPiServer-CMS-6/EPiServer-CMS-60/Microsoft-Office-Integration/ that gives a client the same functionality for EPi 7 CMS (apart from the new add-on http://webhelp.episerver.com/addons/publishoffice/ that integrates the existing "Publish to Blog" functionality from MSWord) ?
EPiServer 7 was shipped without that feature because of the troubles site owners had with installing the client components (and the fact that it was ActiveX-based meant poor browser support). As you mention, the "Publish from Office" add-on was released later on as a replacement.
As far as I know, there's no other publicly available add-on for 7 that can publish from Office.
