I have an excel sheet as an attachment and wondering if there is a way to having it open the master copy directly in Excel when clicking the little arrow after the filename rather than it simply downloading, that way when I save it is saved in the original location.
I seem to be getting lots of versions of the same file saved in my download folder and the master copy is not updating unless I re upload
Am I missing something here
You cannot edit directly “in” Trello. If it is an attachment the you must download. Rather than attaching the file consider adding a link to the original file (google docs or O365, share point, etc). When the user clicks the link they will be taken to the source in a new tab where it can be edited and saved in the shared location. This, IMO, is much better than an attachment.
if you were to share a link to the file in an email that a user could click on then you would simply do the very same thing here. The problem w/ a network drive is that not everyone may be able to access that same drive. The better way is to have the files on some form of cloud storage solution, e.g. Sharepoint, Google Docs, Dropbox, O365 One Drive, etc. Assuming this is associated with your company, I would recommend chatting w/ your IT group about network storage options are in place.
If you had to thrive a new habit during a lockdown, what would it be? Trello
