I have contacted Microsoft about this issue but I am not getting answers - apart from 'We are aware of the issue and don't have a solution - the user base will need to drive this as an issue"

 

IE11 is reaching End of Live, Microsoft want us to use Edge.  However Edge does not work with Sharepoint (365). i.e. Unable to open linked documents in Edge - works fine with IE. 

 

IE is very slow and I would like to move the organisation to Edge but we have invested heavily in sharepoint Intranet.  Are we then forced to migrate to another intranet solution or continue to use IE even when it becomes unsupported?

Hi @Willitwork4me 

I just wanted to let you know that some of our users view our SharePoint Online intranet and teams spaces using Edge and we have not had any issues opening documents. 

I'd be interested to find out more about what you are experiencing so I can keep an eye out in case it happens in our tenant too.

Totally agree here with Jenny, we are workin in SPO using Edge with no problems

@Willitwork4me I haven't seen any issues with (Chromium) Edge.

 

Can you share more details about the issue you're seeing?
