I share my machine with other users. When I create a map in the Excel Add-in, the map is stored under my user profile (C:\\users\\\\AppData\\…). Is it possible to change this location so that other users may utilize these maps as well?

Unfortunately, It is not possible to change the map location of the Excel Add-in.

You are prompted during installation for the Excel Add-in as to if you are installing for current user only or for all users (admin rights required). This indicates which of the below paths the add-in will be installed in. However, the maps are always stored in the local user profile.

Path for Current User Installation (Non-Admin):
C:users\AppDataRoamingMicrosoftAddIn

Path for All Users Installation (Admin Rights Required):
C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Office\XLSTART
