    Launching Webhelp from cloud-based file repository

    kristaw38772653

      Our company migrated from shared drives to a cloud-based file repository for shared information. Previously, I could publish Webhelp to a folder on a network shared drive and then people could click the help.htm file to launch the help in a browser and navigate content. This was helpful to get product owner review and feedback prior to formally committing the files in the CM tool for the application build process.

       

      We no longer have shared drives, we use Box to manage shared files. I tried copying the output folder to Box and then opening the help.htm file in a browser but it does not work. I am guessing that this cloud-based method adds a layer of identification to the files that prevents the standard file association that RoboHelp expects from working properly.

       

      Is there a way to launch Webhelp from a cloud-based file repository?
