Adding a new server
To add a new server to MacroView DMS or DMS Pro:
- Open Outlook or DMS Explorer.
- Navigate to the DMS Options dialog:
- In Outlook: Select the MacroView tab in the ribbon, then choose Options.
- In DMS Explorer: Select the File tab in the ribbon, then choose Options.
- In DMS Options, select the Servers tab and click Add.
In the Server dialog enter a Server Name and the Server Path then select the Server Type. If you have entered the URL to a SharePoint Online tenant, the Server Type should be set automatically.
The License Status indicator will then show if the server is licensed or not. If the server is licensed, click OK and start accessing the server using MacroView DMF or Message.
Understanding the License Status indicator
The License Status indicator will display one of the following values:
License Status indicator
|The server license is active, and the license is valid.
The server license has expired.
Contact email@example.com to renew the license.

If the server is a SharePoint Online (Microsoft 365) tenant or an on-premises SharePoint server running in Client Side Only mode and you have a valid license key from MacroView, click Activate to start the license activation process.
The entered server path is not valid.
Enter a valid server URL.
The server path is valid, but you do not have access to the MacroView external licensing site or licensing site, possibly due to a firewall or proxy issue.
Confirm https://licensing.macroview.com.au is not blocked by your firewall, or that it is added to the list of addresses to bypass the proxy for in Windows Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings.
For more information, see License status is 'Unknown' after entering Server Path details.
The entered server path cannot be found.
Confirm that you have entered the correct server URL.
If you add a SharePoint Online (Microsoft 365) server, ensure the URL begins with https:// and that the selected server type is SharePoint Online (Office 365).
If you are unable to change the server type, delete the server entry and try again.
The server path is valid, but there is no access to the root site.
To view a SharePoint environment in MacroView DMS or DMS Pro, users require read permission to the root level of the parent site collection.
