Hi Dave!
Thanks for your feedback! I am not sure if I understand your idea fully. Do you mean URL links that are external clickable links?

If you have saved you your spreadsheet in the tool Documents you can attach a file on a card and then link to that spreadsheet if it is in the same project. The Project manager could then work with the spread sheet directly from the card you assign him/her and once done it will be saved back on the card and then also automatically be updated in the Documents tool. Please let me know if this is what you wish.

Within a template, I want to link to non-project place, but internal (not Dropbox, etc) documents or URL/forms within a card. For instance, I would like to link to http://inside.mentorg.com/facilities/facilities-change-re... or http://teams.mgc.mentorg.com/sites/facilities/European Facilities/European Projects/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=/sites/facilities/European Facilities/European Projects/Project Templates and Tools&FolderCTID=0x0120009F8E4781AEA57341B013323BC3D246F9&View={E63E5475-C7E9-41B7-873D-F22DCF617F6A}<http://teams.mgc.mentorg.com/sites/facilities/European%20...;

There is no way to do that in the current card structure.

Dave, the URL is clickable if you put it in the card Comments or in the Description instead of the card Title. Have you tried that? Does that solution work for you?

Silvija, I also tried creating a link in the tool Documents and adding it to the card, but that doesn't work. When I go to "Attach or link to files" on the card, then choose the ProjectPlace section, my "Links" folder shows as empty even though there are five links saved in there. See screenshot attached.

Thanks Jen for helping out here. Dave, yes adding links in the Document structure and then trying to link to it from a card doesn´t work. What I instead tried was to add one of your links directly in the description field in one card in the template and then created a project based on that template to see if that would work which is does, see attachment Could that work?

Yes, Jen I also saw that it is not possible to attach a link from cards. The reason for this I don´t know. However is this something that you also have a need for?

Best regards

Hi Silvija, for me it's a question of usability. A product that sells itself as "intuitive to use" shouldn't have any features that seem like they should work, but that don't work.

Hi!
So to be sure I understand what primarily it is that you want, is it 1. in a card be able to add an external link in the section attachment or 2. in a card be able to link to a external link you added in tool Documents?
