After installing Desktop Connect you will notice that if you click on a Microsoft Word or Excel document, in the document detail page you now have the option to open the file using the relevant Office application.
All other file types will also open directly using their native application; providing that that application is installed on your computer.
Click 'Open in xxxx'.
You now have the option to either 'Lock file and edit' or 'Open as read only'. Click on 'Lock file and edit'. The file will open in its relevant application. If you click 'Save' a new version of the file will be saved and updated directly into your Glasscubes account.
After you have finished editing the file, click the 'Unlock' link so that other users can access and edit the file. If you don’t unlock the file other users that try to access it will be informed that it's locked for edit by you.
