I have a user that is sometimes remote, and sometimes in the office. Every time they login to their computer they have to click on "Work online" in order to access the network files. It does not matter if they are in the office, or working remotely. Is there a way to make it so they don't have to click that button?

That sounds like offline file sync.  Do they use offline files, to access files from the network share when they are not on the network?  If not, you should be able to disable that feature either on the laptop or at the network share if nobody uses it.

What Version of Windows are they running?

If Win 7/8 go to the control panel and check Sync Center they might have made it available offline.
