#Office365Challenge – Inserting a Table of Figures in Word allows you to have an Index of all the illustrations, figures or images you’ve used in your document. This also becomes a clickable hyperlink to that place in the document.

Tools: Microsoft Word
Description: Insert Table of Figures in Word

First you need to add the Table of Figures. Click on the place in the document where you would like to add this, I’ve added mine below the Table of Contents (1), then click on the References Tab (2) and then on Insert Table of Figures (3):

Here you can change the necessary settings, click on OK to Insert:


When the table is inserted, you can add images in your Word document and add captions to these. Right-click on the Image (1) and click on Insert Caption (2):

Enter the caption for the image (1), and take note of the position (2), I prefer mine below the image. Click OK to save (3):

Once you’ve added captions to all your images, you’ll have to update the table to display all, simply right-click on the table and select Update Field. If asked to update only numbers or entire table – choose Update entire table.


And that’s how easy that is!!

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
