Cumulus offers built-in support for creating searchable metadata from text included in files created by Microsoft Office, Apple iWork, and Open Office.
Finding a Word doc, Keynote presentation, or Open Office spreadsheet based on the text they contain is a core feature of all Cumulus 8 editions. The Office Extended Pack takes this power to the next level, by offering capabilities far more advanced.
The Office Extended Pack offers vastly extended functionality for Presentations.
For both PowerPoint and Keynote, easily deconstruct presentations into individual slides, each with its own metadata—no matter how many presentations your organization manages, you’ll be able to find individual slides based on simple text searching.
PowerPoint users have even greater functionality:
Because Keynote can open and save files saved in PowerPoint format, many of the advanced options available for PowerPoint users can be accessible to Keynote users too!
In PowerPoint, link cataloged images to slides that reference them—find all slides that reference an image, and find all images linked to a presentation.
Images inside iWork files can be cataloged into their own asset records inside Cumulus, so you can add per-image metadata, and easily see which images a file uses.
Images inside Open Document files can be cataloged into their own asset records, so you can add per-image metadata, and easily see which images are used by your Open Document files. To make identification and searching easier inside Cumulus, the names you give images inside Open Office are the same names Cumulus uses for them too.
The Office Extended pack also integrates with Microsoft Outlook. Easily catalog any Outlook message, and Cumulus automatically extracts attachments into separate, linked asset records. Plus, the email text is searchable, offering you a shared archive of email.
