One-click collaborative editing

Users can now start co-editing sessions in one click - either directly from the Folder Listing view or File Preview. 

In Folder Listing view, a user can hover over a file that can be edited in Microsoft Office Online file or Google Workspace and then click on the big blue  "Edit in ..." button to start the co-editing session:

When both Microsoft Office Online and Google Workspace integrations have been added to the domain, a domain admin can configure one of the integrations to be the default app for editing. The setting is available in the "Apps and Integrations" -> "App Control Center" to domain admins.

It is now possible to change the Turbo Device's access mode from Group-based to the one based on IP Ranges.

By default, all domain users will be able to discover the Turbo Device. It is possible to limit the discoverability by adding IP Range rules. If the rules are set - then the only users having Desktop App devices with internal IP(s) matching (one or more of) the rules will be able to use the Turbo Device.
