Best Practices: Hyperlinking File Source Locations in Your Content

For some customers, connecting a 3rd party file storage integration like Google Drive or SharePoint may raise concerns with their IT teams. Similarly, you may not want to upload and store files natively on Simpplr.

If this is the case, as an alternative you can link the source of your file(s) within your content or even feed posts. This will redirect users to your file storage location in a new tab, where all their existing permissions to the file will remain intact.

If a user does not have permission to view a certain file, and you hyperlink that file in your content, this may lead to a poor user experience. Therefore we recommend only doing this with public files that everyone in your org has access to, especially when linking within a public site.
