I have a need to add a hyperlink in a wikipage to open a file in a shared drive. Uploading the file to SharePoint is not an option in this case (due to record compliance, intranet in SP now - document management in SP with a proper taxonomy and R&D later).
Couple of things:
- I am using IE 9
- SharePoint Online
- Have added intranet.sharepoint.com (the site in question) to my trusted sites
I have tried the following formats with no success (i.e. nothing happens when I click on the link, not even an error message):
Copying the link and pasting it into another browser opens the document but the same link on the SP wiki page (have tried 'open in new tab' and 'open in new window' by right clicking and by setting the link to do so and nothing happens (no error message, nothing at all).
What are the other internet settings I am able to amend to allow this, should I try all the above again using the full path with server name included (I think I tried this earlier and no luck) or is there an additional solution?
Thanks in advance
