"Edit" URL - SharePoint Online Library

How in the world do we pass the edit URL through a workflow for users to open files and edit as if they were opening it from a library? The only URL available in NAC is the item URL which just allows user to download the file. Not open the source file.

    Hi Brandi,

    I can see you've raised and also answered the question in our Community forum. Thanks for adding such a detailed solution!

    For for the document UR, if you do a build string action then append ?web=1 to the file URL, put that url in your email action etc. This link will then open document using office in the browser rather than a file download.

    This behaviour will vary based on file type, etc.

    You could also discuss this further on the nintex community forum.
