Editors' Review

by   / April 26, 2010

Microsoft's Outlook does so much that few users need more, but there's always room for improvement, especially when it comes to productivity enhancements. Software Solutions' Aladdins Office Documents Pro is an Outlook add-in that makes it easy to create specialized Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and customized, predefined Outlook emails that save time and increase accuracy over individually prepared Office documents.

Office Documents is an Outlook add-in, so its "main interface" is two small buttons the program adds to the Outlook toolbar, one for the main menu and another for the Aladdins Contacts List. Right-clicking the main button calls up a menu displaying all your selected templates as well as a button for opening the program's actual interface, a clean, well-designed affair that gives you access to the templates and settings. We started with the first half of the toolbar, Create/Edit Templates, choosing a simple Word document on the Add Templates dialog. Our saved template appeared on Office Documents' main menu and opened with a click. The Contacts List is a contacts manager that lets you create specific, automatically updated lists of contacts for various templates, a neat idea and another timesaver. For an easy-to-use add-in, it offers a lot of assistance, like a full Help menu listing five separate PDF-based guides.

Aladdins Office Documents Pro is free to try for 15 days. We tested it in the latest editions of Windows, Vista and 7, to satisfaction. If you find yourself composing the same Office docs over and over again, it's definitely worth a look.
