How to open a link to a folder location in C4C

In the UI Designer in Cloud Application Studio I can define a field as a link to a folder location and bind a URL to it.

However, when the user opens the link the C4C system appends the tenant's uri the the URL so we get a 404 error as the url doesn't exist.

A url mashup is also not helpful here as I don't have a url with parameters, I just have a complete link with not 'www.' or 'http://'etc

How can I allow the user to click on a link which will lead to a folder location outside C4C?

For example, the url I want to open could be

C:\Users\Katie\Documents\FeasibilityStudies\Trash\Trash.doc

file://localhost/C:/Users/Katie/Documents/FeasibilityStudies/Trash/Trash.doc

Or you could try and use the MS Word URI scheme

Hi Will, using

file://localhost/C:/Users/Katie/Documents/FeasibilityStudies/Trash/Trash.doc

C4C now prepends 'httml://' to the url so it doesn't work either.

I'll look into MS Word URI scheme now
