How to acess external files in nextcloud web


I’m a new nextcloud user. I have a local server integrated with nextcloud, on this server I have different files, such as files with the extension .kml (google earth), .docx and .excel. The question is: how do I open these files in nextcloud online and make changes, without having to download them to edit? My nextcloud version is Nextcloud Hub 8 (29.0.0)

Thank you very much in advance!

You’ll need apps that support the various file types. In the case of DOCX, for example, you could use Nextcloud Office + Collabora or CODE[1].

I found a better way. To access a file locally, the Nextcloud desktop client must be installed. After installing the client, connect with the same account that is being used on the web. Finally, add a folder to save the files locally. Therefore, when you want to open/edit an external file locally, simply find the file on nextcloud web and select the ‘Edit Locally’ option. Hope this helps more people who have the same problem.
