|Description||Add Support to OWW for publishing spreasheets and documents to OWW from Google Documents|
This work started with inserting a set of tags into OWW to support the display of documents stored by a user in their Google Documents account. Currently, Google supports display of
- word documents
Google does not provide programmatic display of the following document types:
- pdf files
If a user is logged into a Google Documents account, unpublished documents can also be accessed, but only by the logged-in user. Additionally, Google allows a logged-in user to list all documents along with their format. status, and timestamp fields.
The flow of information is therefore only from a viewer of an OWW document to Google servers. The contents of the document is never inserted into OWW.
This would also provide a way for users to submit documents. Since OWW will not see the documents, this is largely a convenience. There are no plans at this time to add this additional interface.
Time to complete: Completed
Google is inconsistent in what information is made available for each type of document. This has led to issues related to placement of tags and the selection of what buttons or links are shown.
Time to complete: Friday (8/6)
Normalizing the interface for different types of documents
Currently there are a set of changes to the templates that need to be verified. Unfortunately, in at least once case, there is no way to remove a tag (on the spreadsheet page) that is not availabel with other classes of document.
Time to complete: Friday (8/7)
This need to be completed. This should include notes to complement the existing code as well as a blog entry and additions to the FAQ's describing them.
