Using Confluence 3.5.13, SharePoint Connector 1.4.7, SharePoint 2010, what's the trick to actually being able to edit a SharePoint document from within Confluence? I tried specifying the columns in the sp-list macro, but specifying an "Edit" column just gave me a "-" that didn't do anything
This might be out of scope for this forum (maybe it's a SharePiont issue), but when I click to open a document in SharePoint, I see:
When I click to open the document through Confluence, I see:
I've verified that the links are the same (whether I click through SharePoint to get the doucment, or through Confluence, it's the same underlying http link). So it's really just that when I click through the document on Confluence, it doesn't prompt me with that initial "How would you like to open this file?" prompt.
On IE9 and Office 2007, the document should open immediately from the browser with no prompt. Upon the document opening in word, you should see a button to check-out the document from SharePoint:
Clicking on "Edit Document" should check out the document from SharePoint and remove the read-only flag on the document.
Saving the document should upload a new version to SharePoint automatically.
Bummer, I'm not seeing that. I tried in IE 8 as well. The document comes up with no prompt to edit it.
I was able to eventually get it to come up, but it's really not a usable workaround. What I had to do:
So it's kind of like it doesn't know it's a server document when I first open it. So this is sounding to me like it's a Word issue of some sort.
So unless anyone has any other wild ideas, I think I'll have to talk to Microsoft on this one.
Here's some additional ideas I've had to troubleshoot further:
Does that shed any light on why my "Edit" doesn't show up? If not, it's not a big deal, I think this will work for my users.
Thanks so much for the help!
You should be able to just click on the name of the document in the sp-list macro (which should be hyperlinked) to open the document in the appropriate client application (eg. Word, Excel, etc.). A default document library should look like this in Confluence:
The "Edit" column is obsolete in SharePoint Connector 1.4 (you shouldn't need to use it anymore).
