Please provide a method for Nomad Web to exchange data with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel)

Nomad Web is a very innovative client, but many Domino applications cannot be used, because they need OLE Automation to interact with Microsoft Office (mostly Word or Excel). I understand that OLE automation does not work over HTTP, this is why we need a different approach to exchange data with Microsoft Office (and possibly also other Office solutions like LibreOffice).

    We are planning to release COM integration from Nomad, with a browser extension for Chrome/Edge, in 1.0.12. This will be a Tech Preview and we would welcome feedback via the Nomad app itself (Help / Report a defect).

    If all goes well, we will make it Production Ready in 1.0.13 (Sept).

    A browser application (like Nomad) can not exchange data using OLE. So despite your request being understood, we can not directly fulfill your requirement.

    However, we will investigate what other options we can provide.

    This is a major pain point, and we need a workaround. Maybe Server Side.
