Feature Request: Be able to Switch Between Webaccess and Weblink

asked on August 9

If I'm in weblink and realize I need to edit something, would it be great to click a button and find myself in webaccess?

Yes, it would be.

Maybe there is a way to do that by putting links to webaccess in weblink (e.g., the home page), but a built in tool that was available on everyone page would also be swell.

Can you expand on the use case?  If you have edit rights and sometimes need to edit, you could be using Web Access in the first place.

True, but I think the use case is mostly around having a link to a document/form in either webaccess/weblink form, but needing it in another. 

Example: I have a weblink URL that's accessible to all staff via an intranet site or email sent to all staff. If I need to edit it, I have to click on that link, find out where the document is, open webaccess, drill down to the document, and then finally edit it. This is a lot more time consuming than clicking the link and then a button to get edit access.

Another scenario would be if I'm editing a document and need to send the weblink URL to someone who doesn't have edit permissions. I would have to edit/save the document, open weblink, refind the document, and then copy the URL.

Hi Robyn,

Thanks for the use-case, it helps understand what's going on.

I believe you may be able to set this up from the web client through a custom toolbar button. Assuming your weblink server is at a fixed known location (which I assume it is), you should be able to create a button that simply redirects you to the WebLink server and auto-populates the currently selected or open document ID via token. 

I don't believe there is a similar way to do that the other direction at the moment though.
