Open Outlook Attachments (links) always in Office Online

    Question

  • Hello Forum

    I have set to open all office documents in the local office (not Only), but if I send a link within Outlook (add attachment as link), the link will be open always in Office Online. Any hints for that behaviour?

    Thanks!

  • Hi CRMBE,

    If the link is in the following formats, it will open the file using Office Online.

    https://<site>/_layouts/15/WopiFrame.aspx?sourcedoc=<doc>&action=default

    https://<site>/<library>/<doc>?Web=1

    Please use the link with the following format:

    https://<site>/<library>/<doc>

    Best regards,

    Linda Zhang

  • Thanks Linda, but I cannot define that link. Because I click add attachment in Outlook and click the file - no possibility to say which link should be attached.

  • Hi CRMBE,

    The linked document will be opened in Office Online by default.

    We need to use the Open in application button to switch to the desktop version.


    As a workaround, enter the link of the document in the email instead of linking the document.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang
