You can create links to documents in a 2010 Documents tool, and place them in any rich text location. For example, you might paste a link to a document into a Member message, Discussion topic, or Chat entry, or in a Microsoft Word document.

Note: In order to follow a link to a file in a Documents tool, a user must be a member of the workspace that contains the tool.

To create a link to a document:

  1. Right-click the document you want to link to, and then click Copy as Link.

  2. Go to the rich-text location where you would like to paste the link.

  3. Right-click and then click Paste.
