Chapter 17. Publishing with Authoring Connector

Authoring Connector provides the ability to upload content from Microsoft Word directly to MCMS, allowing authors to continue to work in the familiar Word environment without having to learn the technicalities of HTML or other web scripting languages. Through a simple publishing process, a Word document can be uploaded to the MCMS web server and published as a posting.

You will find Authoring Connector particularly useful when:

  • Authors are not comfortable editing content in the browser and would be happier using Word instead.

  • Authors require a rich editing environment that allows them to work with complex objects such as tables.

  • Templates are structured to contain a single placeholder.
