A great new feature in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2018 is the ability to generate a hyperlink to any file in the vault through the Right Click Menu.
Simply right-click on any file, and go to the new Copy Link command.
This will copy a hyperlink to the file’s location to your clipboard.
This link can then be pasted into any document, such as a spreadsheet, or can be sent to another user by email. For that user to then access the file, they will need to have (1) a vault view created on their computer and (2) “Read File Contents” permissions for both the folder and state that the file is currently in.
