I have SharePoint 2013 Designer Workflow which assigns tasks to users. In the email of the task I have added a direct link to the related document.
I was originally using
[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL%][Workflow Context:Current Item URL%] as the hyperlink.
This was working fine for all users who had Microsoft Office 2013 installed. I ran into a problem when users with Microsoft Word 2010 clicked this link the document would open only in Read only mode - when they do have Edit rights on the document. The Enable Editing link was also not available.
I found a solution to add
ms-word:ofe|u| to the hyperlink so now I'm using:
ms-word:ofe|u|[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL%][Workflow Context:Current Item URL%] as the hyperlink. This is great in that it gets the document to Edit mode however it gives the user a Security Notice pop-up (for all users, including Word 2010, Word 2013, and including for the site collection administrators).
So then I found the following suggestion: http://blog.amodit.com/2014/01/how-to-make-webdav-work-in-read-write.html
However it's not working. People are still getting the Security Notice.
Any suggestions to avoid this security notice and just open the files in Edit mode from a hyperlink in an email?
