RH 2017 and Sharepoint

I have two questions about Sharepoint and RH 2017:

1. When working with project files stored in SharePoint, are you able to connect directly to those files in SharePoint and work with them in real time from Robohelp? Or does the process involved checking them out to local spot and working with the local copy then checking files back in? If I open a Word document from SharePoint while in Microsoft Word ... that file opens in Word and saves changes back to SharePoint directly for me until I close Word. Wondering if similar thing meant to happen in RH.  

2. Anyone have instructions for setting up the connection between RH 2017 and Sharepoint? Specifically, what you entered in the SharePoint Site field of the Connection Details window? I did the following and can't get my Test Conncection to succeed after trying a few variations of what I thought was the correct URL for my company's SharePoint site. Only instructions I find when searching online seem to be RH 2019-based and talk about Collaborate settings, but all options except the Resource Manager icon are greyed out when I look at the Collaborate ribbon in RH 2017. 

  • From File > Open Project, I clicked Open Project from Version Control.
  • In Select Version Control Provider, I clicked the only option presented to me which is RoboHelp SharePoint Connector. Then click OK. (BTW, I clicked Help in that window but nothing happens).
  • In Connection Details, try various entries in the SharePoint Site field. 
  • No success with test connection. Various error messages I get are  Invalid URL: The hostname could not be parsed. and Error: The remote server returned an error (403) Forbidden.
