Saving links to files in a network folder for Contract Management


Apart from storing Web links to documents related to contracts, you can also save links to files in network folders. Due to security settings of the majority of browsers, this feature is available only in Internet Explorer. However, even in Internet Explorer you need to do some adjustments to bypass its security settings.

  3. Reload the application page.

Option 2

  1. Go to IE settings > Internet options.
  2. Open the Security tab.
  3. Click the Internet zone and then the Custom Level button. The Security Settings window opens.
