How to open sharepoint files in edit mode using associated link?

Hi All,

We are trying to use the URL links available through SSM to open documents we hold on SharePoint. These will be the action plans for the risks we are entering as KPIs. The aim is to established a one-to-one link between the risk KPI and the risk action plan as this is a fundamental reason behind using SSM for Risk.

However, when we enter the SharePoint URL into the SSM admin screen, clicking the link from SSM UI opens up the file as an internet explorer page which can not be edited and saved back to SharePoint. We did find a way to get through My Network Places to over write the file, but this only works if you have previously opened and edited and saved the file from SharePoint and requires lots of navigation by the user and is therefore not an appropriate solution.

Is there any way we this can be achieve? Appreciate your replies. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

David

    David,

    It will all depend on your ability to have an URL that would go directly into the Sharepoint Edit mode. That would be a question for your Sharepoint Forum.

    The url in Strategy Management will go to where ever you direct it to go. Once you arrive at that destination, it depends on what is allowed or available from that system.

    Regards,

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your reply. What I meant was when we put the UNC into SSM as a link in the URL box, SSM does not use the address it is given, instead it adds a http:// back in front and once again fails when opening the file in sharepoint.

    For example:

    SharePoint folder view used in test:

    http://wccportal/resources/performance/risk/Risk%20Action%20Plans/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fresources%2fperformance%2frisk%2fRisk%20Action%20Plans%2fDOR&FolderCTID=&View=%7b84123F22%2d74F2%2d41B9%2d918C%2dFF23DAE35EB3%7d

    Excel UNC link to folder


    wccportal\resources\performance\risk\riskactionplans\DOR

    SSM UNC Link - SSM changes the address to include http:// and also removes other \ breaks and adds in numbers and symbols.

    Is there a way to stop SSM converting the local address back into a web address?

    Thanks,

    David
