We automatically trigger creating tasks linked to a document in a library using a workflow. Now, when people click on their task and then on the related item in that task it appears this is a direct download link for the (word) document. Opening this downloaded document is apparently not linked to sharepoint.

Is there a way to change this link to the word online preview page? Where the end-user can then choose between edit in browser and edit in word?


Try adding ?Web=1 to the url, this will use OWA whenever possible, else download the file.
