Office 2016

Hi all.

I realise that RM 8.3 is the first version that supports the use of Office 2016, and that integration with previous versions of TRIM/Records Manager are unsupported when using Office 2016.  However, my organisation is planning to upgrade to Office 2016 and I have not been able to find any information on whether the unsupported integration tools from pre-RM 8.3 versions will continue to work, whether they encounter problems, etc. 

We are currently running HP TRIM 7.3.3 and pushing for an upgrade, but I expect that Office will probably be implemented before that happens.  I'm hoping that the integration will still be functional, despite being unsupported.

Does anyone have any advice, anecdotes or cautionary tales from their own experience?

Re: Office 2016

Since no one else has replied, I did a quick install of 7.33 on a machine with Office 2016. Though I did have some success cataloguing an e-mail from Outlook 2016, the Word integration refused to play ball. See attached.

I'd say you really ought to try setting it up in a test environment to see if you can get it working satisfactorily. Fraught with danger though, and HPE Support won't be much help when problems arise in this scenario.
