How do I automatically Sync Custom Office Templates folder between Windows 8 PCs?

I work between two Windows 8 PCs and use Office 2013.

 

I would like to sync the Custom Office Templates on each computer, ideally automatically. Currently, if I create a new template it is saved in the Custom Office Templates folder on the PC I am using but does not appear on the other PC when I use it later.

 

I can't find a way to use Skydrive to do this, either.

 

I kind of thought this kind of synciness was what Office 2013 was all about.

 

Any help here would be appreciated...

 

Thanks.

Hi,

Thank you for choosing Office and providing us an opportunity to assist you.

 

I will provide information on syncing Office templates.

 

By default Office does not provided an option to automatically sync the folders.

However, if the computers are connected to each other, you may save the templates in a shared folder.

 

Hope the information is helpful. If you need further assistance, get back to us and we will be glad to assist you .

Thank you.

The only options I see are to share with specific (other) people. I sign in to each computer using the same Microsoft account. I cannot see an option to share the Custom Office Templates folder with another computer using the same account.

 

Is this what you mean by connected to each other? Each computer is in a different location on a different network and so on. I just move between them...

 

How can I do share the folder?

 

Thanks again.

Hi,

Thank you for the reply.

 

As you are signing into Office with different accounts. It is not possible to share the template.

However you can share the template by saving it to the network drive and then access it from there.

Hello,

 

As I said in my reply earlier, I sign into two computers using the SAME Microsoft account. Your reply addressed using different accounts.

 

I would like to access the same templates on two different PCS both using Windows 8 whenever I sign into using the same account.

 

I would appreciate any help on this specific issue.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

You may save the template to SkyDrive for that email account, and then use the template from different location when signed-in with the same email account where the template is saved.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

If you go into File > Options > Save, change the "Default personal templates location path" to somewhere of your choosing.

For example, C:\Users\Name\SkyDrive\Templates
