.doc file for Public


I’m running Seafile with Libreoffice.

Is it possible to share a .doc file to make it possible to view the file without login in? And without downloading the file?

Just readable even if I would change the file?


This is a pro Feature, See https://manual.seafile.com/deploy_pro/office_documents_preview.html

Thanks for the reply.

Any future plans to add the feature for ce?

I don’t think so. But you can use ONLYOFFICE or CollaboraOffice for internal view and edit, see https://manual.seafile.com/deploy/only_office.html and https://manual.seafile.com/deploy/libreoffice_online.html - It’s currently not possible to make use of them with share links.


Libreoffice/ CollaboraOffice is already installed.

I saw this feature on Nextcloud and I found this really helpful. But it is what it is. I wouldn’t move to Nextcloud or Pro for this particular reason.

Maybe one of the Seafile - Bosses can leave a statement about the request.

Yes, please see my Feature-Request: Use ONLYOFFICE and Collabora Online with share links

Let’s hope to get some answers :wink:
