Running local programs like Office (Word, etc) and others from Workspace 365

Running software that is installed locally, is supported by adding or changing registry settings. It is then possible to open the local version of Word for example, and create a document. But this is nog enough.
We would like to add the following possibilities:
- When I work in the Documents and Folders App and I want to add a document by clicking on the menu option Create, it would be create that the document is created in the present folder and that after it is created the local version of Word starts to edit the document.
- The same when I open a document within a folder. I click on the document and it is opened by the local version of Office

So the idea is that when I sign in to Workspace 365, a process executes and checks if Word (for example) exits on the device. If so, than during the time of the session all handling with documents are executed with the local version of Word. It must be possible to configure this function within the ‘Settings’ Menu

Thanks in advance. This would help us a lot.

There is an update for this request. We're currently working on the possibility to have an option to open a document in the Document app with the local Office program after selecting the document.

This does not fulfill your request, but it is good to know that we are looking in to this. Keep an eye on the release notes for more information.

Kind regards,

dit is een optie die voor meer gebruikers handig zou zijn. een aantal documenten kan standaard niet met de online versie van office worden geopend, hierdoor dien je meer handelingen te verrichten om het document te openen of je komt tot de conclusie dat je via Word of Excel moet openen en dan op een omslachtige manier naar de betreffende documenten moet. De keuze om office standaard te openen dient de eerste te zijn en bij voorkeur in te stellen per gebruiker.

this option is active at the moment but you have to use a workaround, before you can use Open in local app you have to move to Folders and Files, so this option will not be used very often. A button in the document overview of the matter or case would improve the functionality of this button.

Yes, at this moment it is only available in the DMS app. We are currently working on a new Business App builder, when that is finished we will look into the possibility to have the same options within a Business App. We'll keep you up to date!

We do see the added value it will bring!

Kind regards,
Mark
