Showing Link to Shared Network Folder in CRM 2013 Form

One recent query I got is that a company was trying to migrate some stuff from SharePoint directories back to shared network folders. They also needed to show link to shared network folder on CRM forms.Here is what I thought might work out (works only in IE, other browsers do not support file protocol anymore):

Make a HTML web resource:



<meta charset=”utf-8″ />




<button onclick=”‘file://Network path)”>Click me!</button>



Upload it and put it on the form:


Now when you click it, it will let you open a shared network location.

Some things to note:

CRM URL should be under trusted sites

Different network policies need to be allowed to be doing so.

Hope it helps!
