If the MyOffice software administrator has enabled the default document preview mode, a document in the internal format will be opened in preview mode in the following cases, regardless of access permission type:

When the user goes to the internal file link.

When the user left-clicks the file name in the workspace.

Files in the format other than the internal format of MyOffice will open for preview. To edit such files, click Edit a Сopy. The file will be automatically converted into the internal format and open in a new browser tab for editing The converted copy is created in the folder with the source file if the user has Can edit or higher permissions for the source document.

If you open a file in .tsv, .tab, .scsv, .csv format, an additional dialog box will be displayed on the screen:


Specify the desired parameters in the dialog box: character set (encoding) type, the string delimiter, and column delimiter (one or multiple delimiters). The right part of the dialog box displays a preliminary layout of the document that corresponds to the selected parameters. To complete the operation, click OK. The file will be converted to the internal format with the specified parameters and opened for editing in a new web browser tab.

If you open a file or folder in the web browser, they will remain open even when there is no network connection (for example, in case of a server connection failure). Once the connection is back, the following will happen:

1.If the location of the file or folder has not changed and the user keeps the same access permissions to it, the folder that was opened before the disconnection occurred will open.

2.If a file or folder with which a user was working has been deleted or if for some reason the file is no longer available, a dialog box will be displayed inform the user that the file or folder is unavailable. To continue, do the following:

User with the permissions of the owner of the element: Click Open in Trash to go to the element in the Trash folder, or Close to go to My Documents section. If the folder or file has been permanently deleted from the Trash, the user will be redirected to My Documents section.

User whose permissions have been revoked: Click Close to go to My Documents folder.
