Permissive Browser File Handling Needed

Permissive Browser File Handling Needed

Q:  Can I view PDF files and HTM files in the browser?  Can I integrate CRM 2011 with SharePoint Online?

A: Yes, No, and Yes.

 

Note that Permissive Browser File Handling is needed for some scenarios.

SharePoint Online in Office 365 does not have the option to set Browser File Handling = Permissive.

SharePoint Online in Office 365 does not have the option to allow additional file extensions. For a list of types of files that cannot be added to a list or library, see the following page:

Types of files that cannot be added to a list or library 

 

The following scenarios don't work as a result of these:

Document libraries:

1)  Can't open PDF files in browser.  Must download, save then open with pdf reader locally.

UPDATE: SharePoint Online now supports PDF in browser. For more information see the following page:

2)  Can't display HTM, HTML files in browser.

3) might affect flash objects

CRM:

1)  Can't integrate MS CRM 2011 Online with SharePoint Online.  This requires permissive and .htc file extension be added to allowed extensions.

UPDATE:
 .htc file extensions are now allowed in SharePoint Online. For more information about Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and SharePoint Online, see the following resources:

  • I’m astounded these features are not enabled currently.  This HAS to be resolved by GA.  I have several customers that WILL NOT move forward with the way PDF's are currently handled.  Please enable permissive and allow .htc ext.

  • I also need this functionality "Permissive Browser File Handling" how or when it can be enabled?

  • PDF Solution to open in browser:

    community.office365.com/.../35658.aspx

  • I installed the template, but when trying to create a new site using the template I get the following error:

    "The Site template requires that the Feature {068bc832-4951-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66} be activated in the site collection."

    Any ideas on that?

  • Just throwing in my 2 cents. Not having the ability to set permissive file handling is making my life more difficult.
