  • Hi,

    As far as I known, we can't use the URL of SharePoint site in Word file/template location directly. Please try the workaround:

    1. Map the SharePoint Doc lib as network drive (e.g. Z:)
    2. Set the Workgroup Template to a local drive (to create the reg key)
    3. Open regedit and set the location to the mapped drive:
    Setting Name: SharedTemplates (Type REG_SZ)
    Reg Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General
