You can access to AODocs libraries from Google Drive with all the browsers listed previously. But in order to use AODocs features in Google Drive, you need to use Google Chrome browser and install the extension AODocs Smartbar.

The latest version of the AODocs Smartbar requires Google Chrome version 53 or higher. We support 5 Chrome versions, from the actual stable one to the actual stable one minus 4 versions. If the latest stable Chrome version is 58, you will need at least Chrome version 54.
The AODocs Smartbar is not compatible with the Chrome App mode.

Edit Microsoft Office files locally

In order to edit Microsoft Office documents locally on your computer in the corresponding Microsoft Office Application, you need to install the WebDAV client.
Learn more here: Install the AODocs WebDAV client

The WebDAV works with the following Microsoft Office versions:

  • Windows 2007, 2010, 2013 & 2016
  • Mac 2011 & 2016

Since the release 4.1, the Smartbar uses Office URI schemes which means the AODocs Wedbav client is no more necessary for MacOS users (Office URI schemes are automatically registered when Office is installed).
If a MacOS user has issues to edit their files, they can launch the standard Microsoft Office repair tool, which should register the URI scheme.
