Opening a Word Document in SharePoint for editing

I have created a Word Document in my SharePoint Document Library. Now all I want to do is have the flow open the document so the user can edit it. 

 

I have looked everywhere for an answer and can't seem to find one. What action in Power Automate do I use?

@365-Assist  ok, shure you can do this using RPA module UIFlows + web App

UI flows are very simple to use so just install everyting the tools need and then is easy like clic on record and do what you need to do. 

 

Hope you this can helps.

hi @365-Assist  open the document? what do you mean exactly, because If you want to see the document in a new tab open by flow, you can do that using RPA module but using custom actions in simple flows is not possible.

Thanks for your reply. Here is a short video that shows what I want Power Automate to do.

Hi @365-Assist ,

 

If you would edit the document in the ui flow you could take a try with @ChristianAbata 's suggestion to use ui flow.

However, if you just want to open the document with Microsoft flow and for other user to edit, it is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.
