Document shortcuts

As of FileHold 16.0, document shortcuts have been deprecated. If you are using document shortcuts you should consider moving to an alternate mechanism for your use cases. New systems will not be able to enable shortcuts and they may be completely removed from a future version of FileHold. Offline documents with an URL metadata field or document linking may be useful replacements for your current shortcut use cases.

Document shortcuts allows users create and place shortcuts to documents in any folder that the user has access to in the document management system. This process is similar to create shortcuts in Windows Explorer.

Users who are members of a FileHold group with Publisher or Administrator role membership permissions can create shortcuts between several folders that they have access to.

This functionality may be disabled. Contact your System Administrator for information.

To create a document shortcut

  1. Right click on the document and select Create Shortcut.

  2. Choose a folder in the Library that you want to put the shortcut in and click OK.

  3. The location of the document shortcut opens. The document will have an icon with an arrow on it indicating that is a shortcut.
