Office 2013 Integration Question
A curiosity question: is everyone happy with the way integration works between TRIM and Office 2013?
I have an issue with the need to now train (and re-train) users to select a separate HP TRIM toolbar to save new documents to TRIM. The need for more mouse clicks will just increase the desire of users to bypass TRIM because their standard, "just hit the save button or do a CTRL-S" etc, won't call TRIM. Thus, IMHO, users will be more likely not to save to TRIM.
And yes, I know, we can train and educate etc etc but taking away standard functionality... Is it just me that thinks this is a big step backwards?
Maybe I've just worked with TRIM for too long...
Thanks for digging up that info Neil.
Can I just ask, when the developers say that the issue has been "documented" can you tell me where? ie is it in the Specification & Limitiation docco. The reason I ask is while that is a great bible, it's easy to not notice changes in it due to the sheer size & detail of info in that document.
Good question Mel!
I'm struggling to find it documented anywhere, other than in a comment in an internal database with a note from the developers that says "...This behaviour is correct and documented..." 😉

Deselect the 'Use separate file open/file save buttons when integrating with version of Microsoft Office earlier than 2013', which is under 'Administration\System Options\Miscellaneous'. The File Open and File Save icons are removed from Word and hotkeys work. I tested on Office 2007.
I've gone through reading all your comments and I couldn't agree more.
Perhaps a slight workaorund I've found, which similar to what Mel said may be pushed with a Tips & Tricks, is to have the TRIM's Save As button added to Word's, Excel's and PowerPoint's quick access toolbar.
See attached image for what I do (the last icon for those who are not familiar with the HP TRIM / RM Add-ins).
Hope this helps anyone out there.
I was going to weigh in and suggest what Fabio has suggested - modify the office toolbar.
I too dislike that users are no longer pointed straight to TRIM/Records Manager from the save dialogue. I've added the save dialogue to my quick action toolbar and have customised the tabs to have the HPE Records Manager tab next to the Home tab to in Word.
One of our products ("AutoCheckIn") detects when a file hits the user's disk, rather than when they click save - this has the advantage of not relying on the office interface at all, and works with non-office applications.
