Hi

 

 

One thing my testers have picked up is when they are assigned an approval task with a document link.  They click on the link and a local version is downloaded. Users are generally running a version of Office 2010  but this can occur with new versions. 

 

Hence, I want guarantee that documents always open in the browser. 

 

Now, in the Document library you can set this explicitly but I still get the issue.

 

Here is a useful link

One thing I wanted to try is to hand craft a link you seen in the preview dialog box  in my Assign Task

https://tenant.sharepoint.com/team/Document%20Library/My%20Document?d=w[UNIQUE ID]

 

now the issue is the unique ID is not available in Nintex .

 

So how do I get around this?
