Enhancing Word Document Management with VSTO Add-in

Client Description

The client required the development of a VSTO add-in in C# designed to enhance document management within Microsoft Word. This add-in introduces a proactive save reminder feature, particularly useful for systems where autosave functionality is inhibited by extended save durations, such as when integrated with an ERP system.

Project Highlights


The primary objective of the add-in is to prompt users to save their Word documents at configurable intervals, especially following modifications, to prevent data loss and improve workflow efficiency in environments with complex document management systems.

Key Features

  • Save Reminder: Prompts the user to save changes every n minutes, based on document activity.
  • Configuration Flexibility: Users can configure the reminder intervals through a config file, allowing easy customization of snooze and save intervals.
  • Non-intrusive Alerts: The reminder window cannot be minimized, ensuring visibility and prompting timely user action.

Technologies Used

  • VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office): Framework for building the add-in within the Microsoft Office ecosystem.
  • C#: Programming language used for implementing the add-in's functionality, chosen for its robustness and integration capabilities with Microsoft products.
