Starting today, you can open Microsoft Office, .pdf, and .txt files directly from the Amazon WorkDocs web client using the default application installed on your computer. When you save your changes, the file is automatically updated on Amazon WorkDocs. With this feature, you no longer need to manually download, save, and upload files when using the web client.

To use this feature, select Edit from the file dropdown menu in the Amazon WorkDocs web client. You will be prompted to install Amazon WorkDocs Companion.
