Link handling to open documents in apps: Improvements
There has been a feature released end of 2020 to open files provided via link in the corresponding Microsoft 365 app as described in:
This feature was very much requested from our users. We highly appreciate the setting. Eventhough we are moving in the right direction, for our users this is not sufficient. They need to activate it manually and it seems there are cross relations to a policy that we don't understand.
1) Make the property mentioned above configurable for admins (e.g. via policy)
2) Make the property work for 1st party office apps (especially teams). I'd like to kindly refer to another existing user voice here:
3) Make the property work for 3rd party apps
4) Explain in a knowledge entry how the property is related to the setting "Open office file links in Office Online" that can be set via policy

A uniform behavior accross all MS application helps the users to understand how to work.
