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 is too bad that Microsoft don't want all companies that wont place their data in Microsofts cloud to use Teams. Too bad since Teams has so many good features.

As we have over few TBs of data on network drives, I think linking to them instead of duplicating them is a great idea. I think this feature is pretty crucial for most of the companies and hope it will be added soon.

I agree on this feature. Like most companys we also cannot tranform all existing file shares with a big bang to Teams, so this would support the gradually migration to Teams.
This suggestion is still on page 5 on uservoice and has barely 800 votes. If we want this, we need to make more people vote.
Still, suggestions with fewer votes than this has gotten a status update from Microsoft. This is almost the only one without an answer so far, after two years...

Please add this beneficial feature into Teams.
Indeed! I believe for daily work in companies it makes much more sense to be able to send hyperlinks to network drive locations and files rather than internet sites guys!
Frank van der mast commented
I completely agree with this request!
We want to use a macro-enabled excel file in a Team but we simply cannot because Teams doesn't support macro enabled Excel files and I cannot even link to the file placed on our network drive because Teams also doesn't allow that in an easy fashion!
Teams is driving me completely nuts with these gross oversights!
Jim Hammann commented
Definitely need to have a way to link to a folder on a drive. One more vote here for that!
Laurel Schandelmier commented
This is critical functionality. Please add!
Allen Steckling commented
literally a deal breaker, every other collaboration app supports this as a basic feature.
allowing only one drive file links is pretty transparent
Please add this feature!
Please add this feature
Please make this feature happen soon
Please help! We do need this!!
Why does this idea still does not have any update from Microsoft? Already 2 years passed since HH shared this idea...We badly need this function.
This is a must-have for our company to incorporate teams effectively. Please add this.
Yes definitely. It would be great to have the ability to send an easy clickable link in an email in MS Outlook like we can at present using Ctrl-K e.g. G:\staff survey\results-2019.pdf
If someone is using the Teams web client outside the corporate LAN with no VPN access, then the click will fail, but for everyone else this is super handy... Would be great to see Teams support these kinds of hyperlinks like Outlook does. :-)
yes pleeaase. I do this all day everyday, it's easier to chat copy/paste file paths than composing an email. It would be wonderful if the link actually worked

Very important feature for our company! Please add this feature.
