Who is this guide for?
Osprey Approach offers the ability to produce documents via any web browser, such as Chrome and Edge, when running from a Windows PC.
To be able to do this, users will need to install the Osprey Office Gateway App, to allow document production within Microsoft Word.
Installing the Osprey Gateway
To download the Office Gateway, log into Osprey on your browser of choice, and expand the Focus On menu to show the Focused On Dropdown.
Click the Download Office Gateway to start the download.
Your IT team can download the app without access to Osprey here
Once downloaded, run the Setup.exe. This will open a prompt. Click Install.
Once complete you will see the Osprey in the Notifications Tray and if you right click you will see some more options along with the version number:
If users receive a Security warning when running a document, users may also need to add C:\Users\Username\Documents\OspreyOfficeGateway and all subfolders to Word’s Trusted Locations.
Please click the below guide for further information on how to prevent further warnings.
To ensure the save prompt appears when closing a word document, please refer to the below guides and ensure Osprey is allowed permissions for Pop-Ups.
Running a document
When producing a document, either via a workflow or document production, a prompt will appear to open within OspreyOfficeGateway. Click Always Allow followed by Open.
A status update will appear to let you know Word is opening.
Word then will open, allowing the user to review and amend the standard document.
If there are Any Word Prompts, such as ASK statements, these will appear behind Osprey, so users may be required to minimise Osprey to be able to access these.
Once completed, close the document, and a save Pop-up window will appear, allowing you to save your document into Osprey.
