Hi,

links to Word Documents located on a server using a UNC path seem to work absolutely fine as Hyperlinks in ArcMap by clicking the yellow flash icon but in ArcGIS Pro 2.7.1 they are not clickable to link.

I have tried the first section at stage 5 using a fixed drive https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/mapping/navigation/use-hyperlinks-in-pop-ups.htm

i.e  file:///C:\Users\temp\OperationsSchedule.docx

this seems to work fine but I cannot get something like below to work

\\ServerName\sharedDirectory\filename.doc

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

In ArcGIS Pro, you need to configure the popup. Insert a hyperlink as a text element

Thanks, that helped.

Did not spot the carrot and you also have to highlight the text you want in order to configure the URL.  I hope this is improved by ESRI in the future, in ArcMap no config was required - it just linked!

I think this method is cleaner.Complete HTML as the field value. FAQ: Is it possible to add a hyperlink path to a field in ArcGIS Pro?
