Before beginning, the Microsoft Office 365 Excel integration should be enabled for your Just3Things account. Please see this article on enabling the integration for more information.

You will need:

  • Your login details for your employer’s Microsoft 365 account. If you don’t know this, get in touch with your system admin.
  • The name of the Excel 365 Workbook that you'd like to link to. If you don't know this, try accessing the Excel 365 document from your work computer.

Once you have this information, access the Key Result you’d like to automate. Click the ‘Options’ menu in the upper-right-hand corner, choose ‘Automate Check-ins’, and select the ‘Set up’ button next to the Microsoft Office 365 Excel Option :

A new page will load with an option for you to sign in to your Microsoft 365 account. This will direct you to Microsoft’s login process, and redirect you back to Just3Things once you have successfully logged in:

Nearly finished!

You will then be able to choose which workbook you’d like to access. Choose from the list, or search for your workbook. You can then choose which sheet in the workbook the data you want is in, and enter the specific cell. Select the ‘Next’ button to continue. 

If you’ve added a workbook within the last few minutes, there  can sometimes be delays getting this information from Microsoft. Please make sure a few hours have passed before trying again. 

Confirm the workbook, sheet, and cell number are correct, and press ‘Done’.

You can then view your automation on the Key Result by scrolling down to the Automation section near the bottom of the Key Results page:

That’s it! Now, every time you update that cell your Key Result will check-in. 

To edit, follow the same steps again and choose a different workbook, sheet, or cell.
