Is there a way for a user typing in a comments section on an Intranet webpage to hyperlink to a Windows Server that has a document? The user would literally type or copy the path to the file server and the referenced document. Any assistance would be appreciated.

This will work if the site allows users to insert html code into their documents

<a href="\\path\to\file\word.docx">Text to display</a>

Let me try that. Is there an easier way though as some of our users might be comfortable doing that?

That is the easiest way to hyperlink to a document without having the ability built in to the intranet editor.

If they cannot insert html then there is not other way to link without copying the path.
