Allow links to folders on a local machine or a network share
Unfortunately this wasn't cooperating with different browsers or even the desktop app. There are some security concerns with this as well that we will need to address before shipping this
How is this one going??
My vote for sure. And pretty please with some easy interface? I hate having to drill down through complex file paths if there is a way to avoid it! But that would be a wish. Any link would be better than none.
@Zeb Can you give us an idea how realistic it is that we see this feature in the (near) future? I really think that a Windows app / mac app should be able to link to my local files. As I said in my comment the files belong to the project but on your server for downloading.
@Jörn Weber: This one seems simple but with all of our validation being done to determine what a link is, it's actually pretty challenging. I just pinged our desktop developer to see if this could be a quicker win if only on desktop but I doubt it
@Jörn Weber: We think we got it done, we'll ship this Friday :)
@Zeb: As in “desktop only”, I suppose...?
@Zeb: WOW! This is really great news. Thanks for this outstanding support!
@Jörn Weber: Eh I take that back, we are having trouble actually opening the links, not sure if it will ship soon
@Zeb: Earlier Clickup allowed pasting Onenote pages Local links in URL field and worked Fine too.
CU is still allowing pasting Onenote LOCAL links in URL field.
but on next restart of CU - those links are changed by adding https: in front of onenote Local links and makes the links Useless.
At least correct this bug.
@Zeb: Also please allow Links to Local files in URL field.
OR, Have a NEW TYPE OF FIELD - "PATH" - which will support File/Folder paths as well as Onenote LOCAL links
@Jorgen I was wondering if this is in the pipeline? I understand it may be difficult to do this using the web app, but could this be achieved using an installed ClickUp program?
I fully support this request!
In my world my files stay in file storage (in this case Dropbox on my local notebook). I open, create modify these files most of the time outside of clickup. So there is only ONE place for these files...my folder structure.
What I need in clickup is a way to link a task or similar item to:
- my file storage (dedicated folder) for a project
- selected files on my harddrive
I don't like the upload function as this only copies data and creates a mess in versions. I can not open these uploaded files with my native software without downloading it again..which creates another copy and more clicks.
The same goes for the current "integration" of Dropbox. This does not help. Again the file is downloaded (when I want to open it) and in my case copied again on the hard drive.
I know that browser can not access the computer (windows) file system.
But you are offering a Windows app. Why can I not use this app and link my files directly?
"One app to replace them all"... so please add this function to your great tool! Clickup should really integrate into the file/folder structure. This would be a competitive advantage instead of this useless upload features. (at least 95% useless for me)
I don't see a reply from the Development team... this would be exciting to see.
Absolutely, yes, pleas! Also app/deep links. The Airmail email app for example allows us to copy an direct link to an email with the airmail:// format, but those doesn't really work in ClickUp now. Though it would be super handy if they did!
Yes! I'd like to have this feature, too!
I hope this is going to be include into ClickUp! This would be very helpful for us!
