Allow hyperlinking to network drive locations
While you are currently able to hyperlink to any https:// address, hyperlinks to \-mapped drives does not work. having the ability to do this would be a huge help for a company that has a sophisticated network drive setup for everyone to access

It's useless to post to this thread. MS isn't looking at any of these posts, hence the lack of response from them.
I'm looking for this feature, MS please make it available!!

Hello MS? Someone is awake?

It is business essential to have the ability to send hyperlink to network drives. It is not possible to use only cloud based solutions.
Please make the functionality available like it is on Skype for Business.
Please make this happen as it would be very beneficial when working with co-workers remotely through Teams!

Hi, I have the same request, any update?
The hyperlink, is really not user friendly on teams.
Local links or network drive links are really commonly used on home office or remote assistance
Hi, this is precisely what I am looking for! Any updates? Can we expect a solution?
Guys, common, this is really important, please fix this
Marianne Bal commented
Please add this option soon!!!
Teams is in general a big plus in the Miscrosoft column, but this is not acceptable. They actually had to do more work to make it not work.
This is being ignored on purpose to force people onto Sharepoint. That's all.

Working from home just got that little bit harder without this feature.. Worked in Skype, but now we have fully migrated across :(

HOW on earth has this been IGNORED for three YEARS?!
This is basic.
This is important.
Not everything can be migrated to MS Cloud storage for 'easy' access and such.
You want users to migrate from Skype?
Don't withhold important functionality like this.
We have team members spread around all continents working together on multiple projects. This functionality would be a big help us

As everyone in the comments has said already, having simple copy/paste of network links working would really help our productivity, daily.
Having to select the text and then paste it into windows explorer is way slow.
Please fix this ASAP.
Also, let me say how awesome it is that Teams has handled the massive scale of users recently.
Allowing a hyperlink to network drives/folders would help for document control purposes. One link from the team channel to the drive allows user to all access same files instead of uploading multiple versions and losing version control.
I find it ridiculous that MSFT somehow overlooked this feature. It is apparent that MSFT does not use TEAMS internally, else this would not be a problem.
We've recently switched from Jabber and this is one of my biggest gripes
This is an essential feature that needs to be there. Please disable the "url checking" because it servers barely any purpose.
