Opening .doc and docx file links in Google docs

Hi everyone,

 

Do you know of a way of enabling links to .doc and .docx files on Canvas pages to open in Google Docs, rather than download and open in MS Word?

 

In our beta environment we have the Google Docs preview checkbox enabled, and I thought the purpose of this checkbox was to allow these kinds of files to display in Google docs, but our .doc and .docx links are still opening in Word.  Is there another setting we need to enable?

 

Best wishes, Isobel
