Comparing Macroview and alternatives

7 factors why Macroview is better than the alternative.



Macroview lets you search not only within the content of messages and documents, but also within metadata itself. Directly in Outlook.

Other integrations only let you search the content of messages and documents.


Macroview is designed with the desire for customisation in mind. Be it custom search panels, custom right-click functions, custom profiling (capturing metadata) dialogs and custom favourites, Macroview totally moulds itself to the user's needs.


Consistent experience

Macroview brings its functionalities to Outlook, but also to all other Office programmes like Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Even integration with Adobe Acrobat.

Other integrations only bring functionalities to Outlook.

Volume handling

Macroview automatically discovers the Sharepoint site collections the user has access to and displays only those. A user can also tune their own display via favourites. For example, only the most frequently used site collections can be displayed.

Each Sharepoint site collection needs to be registered separately. Very problematic with many or large site collections.


Macroview supports advanced document management functionalities such as improved document numbering(UDN), enhanced archiving(AOI), as well as document-level security(EDS).


File explorer

Macroview includes a File Explorer that has the same view as Windows Explorer.



Macroview's dialogue screens are designed with Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), as a result Macroview supports DPI scaling and different font sizes. Accessibility is the starting point of WPF.

Other integrations use Windows Forms, which limits accessibility.
