- [Instructor] To eliminate duplicate documents being stored…as convenience copies in libraries across a SharePoint…site collection, users can use a content type called Link,…that comes standard in document libraries in…Office 365 SharePoint Online.…This content type allows users to create links within…a library to files stored in other libraries and sites…in addition to external web pages.…Using this library, I want to go ahead and create a link…to a file stored in another library.…
The file that I want to link to is in the…documents library, located here in the quick launch.…The file is called "Best_Practices_for_SharePoint_End_Users"…and in order for me to copy it's link,…I must first select the file,…and then clicking on three dots…to the right of the file name,…there's an option here called 'Copy Link'.…I'm going to go ahead and click on that.…A small window appears telling me that I'm going to link…to this file, and that it's being copied.…
This highlighted text here within this field…is the actual URL, or web address to the file.…
