Open a document directly in edit locally mode


i want to open a office-document directly in the edit locally mode.

If i click on an officedocument in a KM Navigation IView, the officedocument opens in place in an IE window.

For a special folder I want to change this behaviour. The document should open in the edit locally mode with a simple click.

Has anyone an idea how to do this?

thank you,

    I don't have an EP6 SP2 available therefore I can only give some hints and hope that you can find it in EP6 SP2. In your CollectionRenderer or in your resourceRenderer, you should find a property named 'displayed Properties'. There 'rnd:displayname(contentLink)'. Here you should change the property in brackets as mentioned before

    Kind regards

    Hi Nils,

    what you could do is creating a new LayoutSet and assign this LayoutSet to the folder where you need it. In this Layout set write '(contentLinkCommand=edit_locally)' behind the displayname in the configuration

    Kind reagrds

      Thank you Karin,

      that sounds good.

      But I need a few more hints. I use a portal Ep6.0.2.

      The Layoutset has the follwing parameters:

      Layout Controller -> SimpleLayoutController

      Collection Renderer -> ConsumerCollectionRenderer

      Resource Renderer -> ConsumerResourceRenderer

      Commands for the details menu -> DetailsGroup

      I couldn't find a parameter displayname or configuration.

      Could you please explain it in detail?

      Kind regards,
