Firefly 6

Live editing Office documents

You can open any Microsoft Office document, make changes and save directly to a Firefly page. This makes it easy to store your documents on Firefly, access them from home, quickly edit and reuse your material.

  1. Select the link to the Office file from your page. 

  2. Choose Open for Editing in Word.
  3. If prompted, confirm you wish to open the file. On some in-school Firefly installations and when logged in on a school computer, the document will open automatically in the relevant Office program. On some other installations, you'll need to confirm that you wish to open the file – always choose OK.
  4. Enter your usual Firefly credentials, then select Sign In
  5. View the file. The file will open in the relevant Office application. Make any changes and simply select Save. Anybody accessing the file from that point on will see the updated version.

Give your documents clear names so students know exactly what to select. 

If you experience any difficulties editing the document, please see our troubleshooting guide.
