I have uploaded a document to the content section of SAP Jam. However the 'edit' button' is greyed out.
**Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.**
Reproducing the Issue
1. In any browser other than IE (Internet Explorer) navigate to content section of SAP Jam
2. For certain content the edit button is grayed out and a message appears stating "This feature is supported on Internet Explorer 7 and newer (32-bit), Microsoft Office 2007/2010/2013 on Windows."
The edit button is only available in IE and this is a technical limitation.
Use IE or else download, edit and re-upload the item.
The technical reason behind this behavior:
- IE supports ActiveX SharePoint controls, which is available and invoked in IE, which eventually leads to editing mode into Microsoft Office.
- SAP would have to write a full non-IE browser plug-In which can support ActiveX model for this SharePoint control, and editing of this into Microsoft Office. Therefore supporting this in other browsers is not planned for the future.
