Microsoft Project .mpp files behavior
Is it possible to get following behavior when clicking an .mpp file in sharepoint online?
- Open a webviewer for Project files (not possible right now)
- just download the file.
Now the behavior is by design as follows:
- you search for a file .mpp, click on it and a form opens instead of download directly.
Data from Service Request 616112992836868:
The file search for filename.mpp gives the search result in the form of link (form) on SharePoint search instead of directly file extension like other excel or document files on SharePoint search.
As I was able to reproduce the issue on my tenant, I have involved my colleagues from the higher level of support to look into the case. I will update you as soon as I have more information.
I assume its current design behavior as there is no online app for Project like Word, Excel etc. but I would like to confirm this behavior with higher level team.
Basically in this case we, the Support Department have escalated this to our Next Level of support. After further investigation, we received clarification on this from our Server Engineers that this is by design.
