Add-ons

Microsoft Excel

Our Microsoft Excel add-on offers seamless integration with a Microsoft Office Online Server. With this add-on, you can view, create and update Excel files directly within the browser on any device without installing Excel on your local computer. eLabJournal automatically keeps versions of the Excel file when any changes are made.

Microsoft Office Online Server integration is available for all supported deployment types of eLabNext, including the CloudPrivate Cloud, and On-Premises installation. The Office Online Server is an optional add-on that requires an additional Microsoft license. If your organization has an on-premises Office Suite license with Software Assurance or an Office 365 ProPlus subscription, you may use OOS in eLab without an additional Microsoft license fee.

Please refer to the Microsoft Product Terms or contact Microsoft directly to verify whether your organization license covers the use of Office Online Server in your organization.

Cloud installation

In the Cloud, the use of an Excel add-on via the Office Online Server requires an additional Microsoft license. If your organization is already licensed and eligible to use Microsoft Office Online Server via an on-premises Office Suite license with Software Assurance or an Office 365 ProPlus subscription, you may use Excel via OOS is without an additional license fee.

If your lab or organization does not have an Office365 license, eLabNext offers licensing to Microsoft for an additional charge in the license plan. In addition to the Microsoft License, hosting and support of the OOS server are included in the add-on price. Please Contact Us for more information and pricing.

Private Cloud

With a dedicated Private Cloud installation, you are eligible to use the OOS without an additional Microsoft license fee if you have a Microsoft license agreement that includes an on-premises Office Suite license with Software Assurance or an Office 365 ProPlus subscription. In the OOS add-on for the Private Cloud, eLabNext handles the server hosting, maintenance, and support for you. 

On-Premises

In case the Office Online Server add-on is used with the On-Premise installation, you are eligible to use the OOS without an additional license fee if you have a Microsoft license agreement that includes an on-premises Office Suite license with Software Assurance or an Office 365 ProPlus subscription. The organization IT handles the server hosting and maintenance, while eLabNext provides support for the use of the OOS server add-on. 

If uncertain, please contact your license manager or Microsoft to verify whether your organization’s license covers the use of Office Online Server in your organization.
