Answer

The reason why we cannot implement this is the fact that it is not an open API. Each and every one of you would have to manually make a request to Microsoft to join a partner program in order to get access to the API: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/office/cloud-storage-partner-program#Signup The sign up is not automatic.

After that: "Microsoft will validate your WOPI implementation as well as your UI integration. Depending on what issues are uncovered during validation, this may take some time. You should estimate a two-week turnaround time assuming there are no major issues uncovered. However, we recommend allowing at least a month unless your integration is very simple."

There seems to be no API from MS that could be used for this.

I think there is a way. WOPI seems to be the protocol to use. I'm not a programmer so its foreign to me, but check this site out. https://wopi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

why has these been declined?

seem fairly simple, but with great benefits!

This is one reason why I'm not using FR

And what are you using instead?
