Hi there @goyo, thanks for checking in. 

 

Generally, if you want to open a file with a third party app, it needs to be accessible locally on the device. 

 

In this case, one option is to send them a shared link that directly downloads the file with one click. 

 

The other option is, if they have the desktop app installed, send them a shared folder with the file in it, so that it syncs locally. 

 

Let me know if these options do the trick for you. Cheers!
