Allow for in-browser guest file previews

I often send sharing links to clients without access to Microsoft Office or document viewing clients. I would love to have the option to allow guest users to preview Word/Excel documents within the browser using one of the available document viewers (Google Docs Viewer, OpenOffice, etc).

As a bonus, it would also be a nice feature to allow guests to edit a document with Google Docs Editor, Zoho, OnlyOffice, etc. and be able to control guest editing permissions.




The concept of "guest users" will soon be added to FileRun. You will be able to share files and folders using quick links, however the receiving people will get automatically created temporary accounts, with access through the full feature web interface, with permissions based on a predefined role. Thank you for the feature request.
