I am having issues trying to create a link to our local server inside of our Knowledge Base App.

I have followed the directions of creating a formula - URL field, and using the following formula samples:

Do you have any additional suggestions at getting these URLs formula to work? There are several things I would like to link:

1. A folder only

2. A PDF in a folder

I am also trying to link multiple folders/documents within multiple fields. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

As far as I am aware all browsers have disabled direct file links to drives for security reasons. There may be a way round this but its not a good idea to circumvent in built security features. The only way I can think you could overcome this is to use a google drive folder or one drive and generate sharing links which you can paste into URL fields. You can have one drive or google drive sync with local folders.
