How do I edit a document posted to a card in Trello

Once I add a Word file to a card, it seems the only way to edit that Word file is to delete it from the card, edit it in Word, and post it again. I want the whole team to be able to edit that document in relation time in Trello like in Google Docs

You can attach the file using a Cloud service like google drive or box or Dropbox. 

Or you could move your doc into Google Docs. Take the google doc URL and paste it as the title of a card and you can even edit it right inside trello.

@Jason Sheper even Word docs are cloud ready now through Office365

Thank you for replying. Could the same thing be done with Office 365 and/or OneDrive and if so, how?

OK I just saw Iain's reply now. Thank you both! Iain, is there some setting to be done to the word doc before posting it to Trello that makes it editable for other Office 365 users?

@Jason Sheper the sharing settings in Office will be separate from any permission to see and click on the link from within Trello. I've done automations for some of my clients to automatically share documents via the API in Google Drive when a document link is attached to the card, something similar could be done using the Office/OneDrive API.

I do these types of automations using the Trellinator framework I created:
