Sharing direct links to documents?

Scion 3 weeks ago in Feature requests 0

I would like the ability to share a link to a document that will open it using the default (or maybe even a custom) plugin.

As a use case, my team needs to share documents around and collaborate on them simultaneously. In something like google drive, you can just copy/paste the URL or get a shareable link and they will be able to edit the file. In FileRun, this simply lets them download the file.

Our team uses OnlyOffice, which works fantastic, but in order to link to these documents the best I can do is link to the folder that the document is in ex: https://mysite.net/filerun/#/1/9/My%20Documents

It would be nice if I could get a link that would retrieve the file and then open it using the default plugin. So since I have the OnlyOffice plugin set to open in a new tab, it would open the file in a new tab. This would made sharing documents among users who have permission to access it much easier.
