Problem with set reviewing mode by default on microsoft 365

Hi.
I`m trying to use Office 365 through WOPI and stuck little bit.

I need to open my docx in review mode by default instead of just edit mode. But cant find method or parameters for request\response to implement this.
Also it would be nice if i could allow only reviewing mode for document.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @ELMA-8802 ,

How are your open the docx? Using a shared link? Generally, the review / edit mode is decided by the authority of the user when he/she opens the link. If the document link is get from "Share" button of a document, you can set the link as review link, read only or edit link. Hope this helps.

For me, it defaults to "Reviewing" when I get the link (that's how the link was defined when shared), but I am often not signed in at that point (not sure why). And I need to sign in so that my changes are tracked with my name. When I sign in, it switches from "reviewing" to "editing". Any ideas why?
