I have created a Hero web part in Sharepoint Online that links to an Excel file in a library. I need the file to open in the locally installed Excel application but it keeps opening in the browser version. I have changed the settings in the library itself to open files in the local application but when I click it from the link in the Hero web part, it still opens in the browser.
As a workaround I am now trying to add a hyperlink that points to the local excel file itself but the Hero web part will only allow me to add a link to an actual website. Does anyone know if there is any other way of getting it to open Excel in the local client?
