Hi,
I have a bunch of report templates on the New button in a Document library.
We need to help the users select the correct template, so I want to get a link for each report template.

All works OK, using the link below - BUT we now have some macro driven dotm templates.

https://<tenancyname>.sharepoint.com/:w:/r/sites/siteA/siteB/_layouts/15/Doc.aspx?sourcedoc=%7B912b9...

The Macro template, (wrapped in a content type) works perfectly from the new button, (and opens in MSWord).

But I am struggling to get a link equivalent for selecting the item from the new button.

Can anyone help?
Many Thanks

Ruth
