Bartender and SharePoint Follow

Anyone have any experience with accessing BarTender files in a SharePoint 2016 online document library?  From a normal network drive, you can just click on the file and it opens it in BarTender.  From a SharePoint document library, clicking on a BarTender file initiates a download.

I know there is a way to create a network place for a document library so it functions as a network drive, but want to avoid that.  Many of the SharePoint features are lost going this route.

I'm wondering if Microsoft has a hidden feature that can be activated where SharePoint recognizes the file type and opens BT.

Any ideas?

I'm currently using v10.x of BT but will be installing v2016 in a few weeks.  Not sure that makes a difference here, but just in case.

Thanks!!

At the moment with our latest BarTender 2016 R7 version, we unfortunately don't have this feature to natively access BarTender documents from a cloud storage location such as with Microsoft SharePoint.

It has been submitted as a feature request to our development team so hopefully we can get this feature added in a future release of BarTender.

Is there any progress on this matter? I have downloaded the 2019 version to see if there is any option to use a cloud storage but I don't see it in the new version either. This is still a big omission!
