I have a requirement to add a new menu item to the selected document '...' menu.
The new item would be added to '... - more actions' or '... - open menu dialog for this selected item' menus in a Sharepoint document library.
e.g. When you select a document in a Sharepoint site, you can click the '...' link to get a menu. The menu normally shows options like 'Open, Share, Follow' and additionally has a sub-menu '...' More actions. I want to add a new menu item here. This would be added to a Sharepoint Online website (O365)
Apologies, I am not familiar with Sharepoint terminology, but it appears this would be adding a custom action to the document menu?
Can adding a new menu item be achieved through configuration of the site, or does this require an extension / app to be developed and installed for the new menu items to be added (the new item will need some custom text in the link)?
The new menu item will serve as an 'Open with MyApplication' link. This will be a link to the selected document prefixed with some custom text.
e.g. The plain link may be similar to https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/test/documents/mydocument.pdf
the prefix will be pre-defined static text similar to
Combined the resulting link will look similar to myapplication://dummyPrefixhttps://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/test/documents/mydocument.pdf
This is basically;
Windows can be configured so that myapplication:// uris are handled by a specific application (protocol handler). The prefix is to help the receiving application parse the actual document URL (so it knows what type of link it's dealing with) This aspect / mechanism is already working fine, it is the customization of the Sharepoint Online website / menus that I need some help with
