Link to External Documents

Recommended Posts

Hello

We use an external BMS for the rest of the business, which includes all of the company policies, processes and procedures.

The current scenario I am now facing is that I would like to associate documents documents maintained on our BMS to Hornbill Services, but I won't rewrite the documents in Hornbill, or upload them, because the BMS is the control for the documentation. Ideally, I would simply like to be able to very simply link to them from Document Manager. I'm sure this could be done by creating a new document and pasting the link, but it would be smoother if it could exist as just a link. 

Thanks

Darren

Hi,

We should have the ability to create a document from a external link in the next version of document manager which should be coming soon

Thanks

Hi,

The latest version of document manager has just been released to live - this includes the ability to create documents from external links - so external documents can sit in you document manager libraries as well

Hope this helps

Thanks

Trevor

Hi @TrevorHarris,

Can you provide details on how we can amend an external link to a document in Document Manager?

I had the need to link a document to Sharepoint a while ago and did so after you introduced the functionality, but without realising until now, I had actually linked the documents using the Microsoft Teams link, not the SharePoint Link, so it doesn't open directly.

Thanks,

Samuel

Hi @samwoo

Sorry its not possibly to edit the link at the moment, however I will add this feature for the next release, the only thing you could do is delete the document and create a new one if you need this urgently

Thanks

Hello and Happy New Year!

Anyway, whenever I use the link icon against a document that is linked to an external document (ie. SharePoint), I get the following:

If this is where document URL's are changed, I have not been able to do so since this was released because of the above issue.

Thanks,

Samuel
