Allow hyperlinks to local fileshares

Right now hyperlinks automatically append http:// but for users who aren't familiar with sharepoint or don't have access they should be able to link to ftp or windows files share like \\192.168.1.1\sharedrive or U:\shareall\rtmtlogs


This is a frequent ask from our user population.

    Hyperlinks for SMB and AFP shares would also be great. So smb://server.company.domain should not give https://server.company.domain as a link.

    Here's how you share files or folders in SharePoint:

    Select the file or folder you want to share, and then select Share.

    (Optional) Select the dropdown list to change the type of link. ...

    Enter the names of the people you want to share with and a message, if you want.

    When you're ready to send the link, select Send.
