Goal: 

To access the Microsoft Office applications published with OrthoTrac Cloud. This includes Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

 

Solution: 

All Cloud clients have access to all Microsoft Office applications. You may access them in several ways:

 

1. Click the Windows start button then select All Programs.  There will be a folder titled either Carestream Dental Applications or OrthoTrac Cloud.  PowerPoint, Word, and Excel will be in that folder. 

 

2. All of these programs are also located in the root of the All Programs folder as well.

 

On some Windows 8 machines the folder may not be easily locatable due to the odd configuration of Windows 8's Start Menu.  All Cloud shortcuts can also be found by using Windows Explorer to browse to the following folder:

 

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

 

You may then copy the various Cloud-related shortcuts to the desktop, or to a folder on the desktop, if necessary. 

 

3.  You may also access the programs via the website at https://mypractice.carestreamdental.com/  .  You will be asked for the user ID and password; for the website, enter the user ID as "Smith101" rather than the "mypractice\Smith101" user ID format you would use for Citrix Receiver.  Then enter the password and you will be presented with a screen showing all Cloud applications.
