I am using non M$-software and sharepoint online (often embedded in MS Teams).

I intend to store maps generated by non M$-Software in a document library. I want two things: I'd like to open the files in my third party software directly when I click onto the document. But sharepoint just refuses to relay the link correctly and always downloads the file, so everybody will work on copies, which is stupid. Perhaps sharepoint doesn't want to deal with non-MS-apps. What can I do? Can I recode the link to the file in the document library, so it will trigger via my browser to open in my 3rd party desktop software?

The other thing is: For all people who don't have the software installed I want to provide exports of the file encoded as HTML5. Those exported files work well when I load them directly inside my browser. However the same problem seems to prevent opening it (it takes eternally to load), when loaded into a sharepoint document library.

Can I manipulate the link to the non-M$ or .html files to let my browser relay it or display it directly?

  • Could someone explain, why this is an issue of 3rd party software? It is most likely totally independent from the 3rd party sw, because SP makes the browser download any file instead of letting it open in the browser (if the browser is capable) or letting the browser hand over the link to the native app. It is clearly SP related. – Ariser yesterday

As far as I know, there is no way to open .mmap file in MindManager instead of downloading it in SharePoint Online. Someone have raised a user voice here: Kindly add the file type (.MMAP) on the SharePoint online. You can upvote it to let Microsoft know your needs.

.mmap file is not supported in SharePoint Online modern pages. So, it is also impossible to display it directly on SharePoint.

  • Thank you so far. And what's the problem with the HTML-files? – Ariser 2 days ago
