open document directly (UNC) without checkin / checkout procedure


to avoid the checkout and checkin procedure i am searching for a possibility to open the desired document directly on the physical path.

For excample :

TestServerit est.doc

normaly we can access this file by portal only with https://myportal:50001/irj/go/km/docs/it/test.doc

we want to access the file physically

TestServerit est.doc

this has 2 advantages :

1. word can handle the conflict, if two persons try to edit it

2. i want to avoid the extra click to checkin the document after saving it locally.

    It seems you missed the fact that KM supports WebDAV. Using the Microsoft webfolder client should give you exactly what you're asking for...

      The WebDAV lock is a KM lock. So as long as the lock is taken out, no other user should be able to modify the file in KM.

      And note than in general, a file in KM is not a file on the hard disk that other people can directly access. Unless you're using a repository manager that allows that, such as the CM repository in FS persistence mode. Which is not recommended, after all.
