Default Where to save Maid to Order

I have an Office 365 Trial account established plus a Trial version of SharePoint Online. I have stored a copy of the downloaded Maid to Order apps - when I log into Office 365 in the left pane it shows under Recent Sites the Maid to Order systems which I can open but they only display the user run system, i.e. I can't change any coding. The above points to https"//myuser.sharepoint.com. I have also created a dummy HBTraining Web App via Access 2013 and it too points to https://myser.sharepoint.com. The HBTraining system I am able to edit etc., but I can't get to the Maid to Order Sample site through Access 2013. Similarly I can't access the HBTraining system through the Office 365 login process. Help! What am I doing incorrectly?

First, thanks for the question.

Second, my apologies for the time gap in responding.

"... it shows under Recent Sites the Maid to Order systems which I can open but they only display the user run system, i.e. I can't change any coding."

Did you download a copy of the accdW file for this new app to your local Hard Drive, where you can open it with Access 2013/2016 for editing?

Thanks for your reply. I downloaded the 3 zip files that cover all the chapters and the appendices. The only Access file I found in the downloads for Chapters 1 - 10 was MTOClient.accdb. I haven't located the accdw file.

I understand that you did install the MTO app successfully. Correct?

Launch it in the browser.

In the upper right corner, there is a little icon that looks like a gear. Click it.

You'll have two options:

Customize in Access

Apps for Office

Select "Customize in Access"

Choose a local folder for the accdw. Save it.

Open it with Access and you are now ready to start designing.

Thanks. It works. I am currently on Chapter 8 and, unless I missed something, I don't remember seeing anything remotely similar to your instructions. Did I miss something?

That's an interesting observation. Thanks. I'm fairly sure we talked about it at some point, but I'll have to search the document to find it if I can.
