Files attached under Folders - Static

This is not a Manager Accounting issue but more an operational issue. I wish to know if there is a clever way Manager users have already found as a solution for the scenario below.

  1. In folders we can upload files and attach - great!
  2. If a uploaded file is opened and changed then we find that the file needs to be uploaded again - not great.

Is there a way that this can be overcome?
My thoughts
Can the folders TAB be populated with links in a tidy way that points to say files in sharepoint, be modified and saved in sharepoint and the link or pointer in Manager Folders TAB remains current or updated. This could be the same for say Google’s G-Drive?

Any thoughts clever people?
