ONLYOFFICE v7.0 released: fillable online forms, password protection in spreadsheets, collaboration and usability improvements and more

Filed under
Software

The developers of ONLYOFFICE Docs have released version 7.0 of their open-source online office suite. The new version of the online editors comes with brand-new online forms, new editing features, improved collaboration and usability. Here is a brief overview of what’s new around the suite.

The killer feature of ONLYOFFICE Docs v7.0 is the ability to create and edit fillable forms online. Based on the Microsoft Office content controls, ONLYOFFICE forms offer the same flexibility as Adobe forms but come with more advanced field properties allowing users to create model documents of various types, e.g. sales contracts, DNA agreements, questionnaires, etc.

Users can create fillable forms from scratch, use an existing DOCX document or download a template from the official ONLYOFFICE library. You can share your form with others and collaboratively edit it together in real time. Once your form is ready, let other people fill out the required fields.

OnlyOffice 7.0 Released

  • OnlyOffice 7.0 Released with Form Filling, Windowed Mode + More

    ONLYOFFICE 7.0 is now available to download for Windows, macOS and Linux.

    As the first major update to this free, open source office suite this year you won’t be surprised to hear it’s a fairly big one with a wide range of tweaks, features, and improvements included.

    ONLYOFFICE 7.0 (that’s how they stylise the name; it’s not me shouting) inherits all of the improvements in the cloud-side version the suite, such as the ability to create and edit forms (often distributed in the .docxf format). Filled-in forms can be saved as a PDF file to share elsewhere or the native .oform format.

  • ONLYOFFICE 7.0 Brings Online Forms and Big Updates for All Editors

    Fillable forms, password protection, and version history in spreadsheets are just some of the new features in this ONLYOFFICE 7.0 release.

    ONLYOFFICE is a free cross-platform business-class productivity platform designed for internal team collaboration. It’s unique in that it includes document, spreadsheet, and presentation editors in a single desktop app.

    This open-source Office alternative works with the most popular file formats including DOCX, ODT, XLSX, ODS, CSV, PPTX, and ODP, and is free to use on Linux, Windows, and Mac platforms. In addition, ONLYOFFICE can be integrated with popular sync and share apps, such as ownCloud, Nextcloud, and Seafile.

    Recently, a new version ONLYOFFICE 7.0 was announced by the team. With that said, let’s quickly take a look at what’s new.

ONLYOFFICE hits version 7

  • Lots of new toys, caps lock still stuck on: ONLYOFFICE hits version 7

    Another contender in the productivity stakes, ONLYOFFICE Docs, has hit version 7, introducing fillable forms as well as multiple tweaks for its web and desktop applications.

    ONLYOFFICE is yet another option for users seeking an alternative to the tech giants, and currently comes in a self-hosted or desktop guise. A cloud version will, according to the team, "be available a bit later."

    The first major release of 2022, version 7 is a handy update. While the word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation modules have useful modifications, most eye-catching is the ability to create fillable forms online.

    The forms can be created from scratch or built from DOCX documents and are compatible with Microsoft Office content controls and Adobe forms, the team said.
