Adding a link to a document folder on the server

Is it possible to put a link on the layout that would take you directly to a client's folder of documents on the server?

Actually you can link to folders using a website field with "file://".

 

For example if I wanted to link to the Program Files folder, I would use "file://C:\Program Files" (without quotes).  It also works with shared folders.

No. But you can out a link on the documents tab that will take you to a specific folder.

 

First you need to create a shortcut for that folder. 

 

Then, in the documents tab, attach the link as a shortcut. 

 

 Then, when you click on this link in the documents tab, the relevant folder will open.
