Open document links in SharePoint
If a colleague sends you a SharePoint link in an email, it would be great if there is an option in Outlook which opens the link in the SharePoint App rather than the default web browser.

Can't believe this is still not a thing... It's 2017 SharePoint!!! Do developers at Microsoft not use these products themselves to understand how basic a functionality and terribly frustrating an experience this is.
Could you please update the tentative date?
YAY! Waiting for it! Is there any notification we can get that it is done?

Any updates on this? Seeing "THINKING ABOUT IT" status since August 2016. My Company is soon going to drop the idea of using this App.
Links in the email from sites viz. Groupon, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter they all open in the their apps and not in the browser. The intranet URL is already setup in the App, so it shouldn't be difficult to recognize the URL (from email) by App.

I disagree. I think it would make much more sense to open in the Office app for iOS (Word, Excel, etc.).
