Support Direct Links to Shared Files

In the old days, we use to share folder/file location via unc paths in emails. This was very quick and convenient for our users. Our users miss this function a lot since we have FileCloud. It would be greate to see such easy and convenient way to share folder/files location through email.


When you decide to implement this, try to find a way to implement this through all apps. Specially FileCloud Drive would be interesting.

Thanks for your feedback, basically it looks like you want to share files with others without creating 'shares'.

A quick link to point to that file or folder.

We will consider this feedback.

Any news on this one. This is exactly how our users have shared in the past so it would be great to have this in FileCloud.

What about for non shares? Files in network folders would be my use case.We wouldn't share with internal users, just share a link to a file.
