Rodrigo, one of Inflectra's latest interns, has achieved what customers have long been asking for: a cross-platform Excel plugin for getting data into SpiraTeam (feel free to check out the code on Github ). With the latest versions of office, there's a new API that lets the same plugin work in the web (Office365) as well as on the desktop (Windows and Mac with Office 2016+). Rodrigo explains how he found the Office API to work with.
The documentation is not clearly signposted: it's difficult to find proper documentation, certainly for new users. Microsoft's website is, as is often the case, confusing. Most of the information on the website is pulled from the Github repo, but there are two competing tutorials for getting started, and some of the material is outdated.
Go ahead, give it a try and let us know what you think!
