ONLYOFFICE allows you to edit the files stored in your Moodle account and collaborate on them using ONLYOFFICE online and desktop editors. Thereby, you can use not only online collaboration tools, but also the features available in your desktop application only:

  • using system fonts,
  • using system printers,
  • copying and pasting.

To take full advantage of all these editing options you will need to install and configure several components:

  1. It's supposed that you already have a Moodle server instance installed and configured.
  2. Install ONLYOFFICE Docs. Please note that Moodle server and ONLYOFFICE Docs must be accessible to each other over the network. To find more detailed instructions on how to install ONLYOFFICE Docs, you can refer to our articles.
  3. Enable our official integration app in the Moodle administrator account. To find out more details on configuring the integration app you can refer to the corresponding article for Moodle.
An Internet connection is required for connecting your Moodle server, as well as for real-time co-editing.

Step 1. Connect to Moodle

Launch ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors. To connect Desktop Editors to your Moodle, perform the following actions:

  1. Switch to the Connect to cloud section at the left side panel.
  2. Click the Moodle button. Alternatively, you can use the Connect now link at the bottom.
    Connect to cloud tab Connect to cloud tab
  3. If you pressed the Moodle service button, the Connect to cloud office window opens with the Moodle selected. If you used the Connect now link, choose the Moodle cloud storage from the drop-down list. In the Cloud office URL field, enter your Moodle server domain name or IP address. When ready, click the Connect now button.

  4. The Moodle main page will open in a new tab of the Desktop Editors interface.

    • if the course is set to guest access, you can use it,
    • or use the internal Log in link,
    • or proceed with the course that requires extended access and log in there.
      • Specify your Username and the Password you use to access your Moodle account,
      • Click the Log in button.

Now you can edit your existing files and create new ones, share your documents and collaborate on them with Moodle users using ONLYOFFICE editors, provided that everyone has corresponding access rights, as well as go to the portal Edit mode if you are an administator.

Step 2. Manage your connected accounts

Click the logo in the upper left corner of the Desktop Editors interface to return to the main program window, then switch to the Connect to cloud section to view the Connected clouds list. Right-click on a connected cloud office and use one of the available contextual menu options:

  • Open - to switch to the corresponding cloud storage tab, if you are already logged in to this account, or to open the Connect to cloud office window, if you are not currently logged in (in such a case, you will need to enter your credentials),
  • Logout - to exit from your account,
    You can also click the Exit icon icon to the right of the account to exit from it.
  • Remove from list - to disconnect the selected account and remove it from the list.

If you have several accounts or clouds, use the Add cloud button to connect one more account.
