Open a file in BoxEdit from a custom web application
I have a web application where we use the file box file picker to select a file. I am looking to have the file open in Box Edit. All our users are internal to the company and have BoxEdit installed.
I have looked and not been able to find any guidance. It should be possible. Basically, it is the exact same funcationality as Open in Word that the Box web application provides. Looking to do the same.
