    Link to Network drive

    Heather Fingalson

      I have a dashboard with a link to a document on a network drive. - The link is an image with the URL set to the location of the document.

       

      The link works fine from tableau desktop, but when it's put on the server, the link does not work. 

       

      What it's doing is adding http:// in front of the documents address, so it's coming back as an invalid address.

       

      for instance this is what is entered at the url:

      \\networkdrive\folder1\folder2\document.doc

      when clicked from the server this is whatit tried to connect to:

       

      http:////networkdrive/folder/folder1/document.doc

       

      How can I add a link to a network drive and get it to work from the server?
