Link to Shared Network Folder in Nintex Form

Jump to solution

Is is possible to have the path for a server storage share appears as a link - and then when clicked by the user, that folder would open in file explorer - if the user had access ?

 

I'm assuming the truly best way would be to create a document library in SharePoint, but many of my files would not be SP "compatible" so really need to remain on the server share.

 

\\myserverpath\folder\subfolder

@MikeBrunson1 on the form, add a label control --> Insert --> Link --> In the address put "\\myserverpath\folder\subfolder" and in text to display "Subfolder" (if you don't want to show the path).

 

When your users clicks, it will try to open in IE and then it will recognized the protocol as file, so it will open it in Explorer. If you're users have access to the folder then it should open otherwise will prompt for credentials.
