Re: Option to open Excel file directly in Excel Online (skipping preview page)

Option to open Excel file directly in Excel Online (skipping preview page)

This is assuming Dropbox is connected with Microsoft Office 365. We'd encourage users of our Excel Online add-in to integrate with Dropbox instead of OneDrive if it weren't for the unhelpful in-between preview-page step in the web browser.

Hey! Thanks so much for your feedback. Just to make sure I understand this correctly, would you please let me know which situation applies to your users?:

 

a) They are on www.dropbox.com and would like to open Office files in Office Online. In order to do so, you'd like them to be able to skip the file preview and open the files directly from the web file browser in Office Online. If so, we thank you for your feedback and will consider this for further iterations of our web app.

 

b) They are on www.office.com and would like to open Office files stored in Dropbox. Please note that this is possible if you add Dropbox as a Place in Office 365.

 

I hope this helps.
