Hi @Gorm,

Sorry to hear that :pensive:

I’m not sure why it happens, so I’ve converted this post to a support ticket - the Support team will get back to you via email.

@Gorm - 

If I’m not mistaken, isn’t this how files hosted on server locations are represented in web browsers? I don’t think this is a Miro-specific thing in other words…



Did you find a solution to your problem? 

I am struggeling with the same thing.


No I did NOT, I complained that when you make a link in Miro-Board to a folder on your

local network it doesn’t work.


The answer from the Miro-Board team was: we have done this for security reasons.


We use Miro-board to plan our tasks, and it was VERY convenient to have a link to the

folder where the task was described.

But Miro-Board just canceled that possibility ☹ So now we have to do the following procedure

every time we make a new entry:


Copy the link into notepad

Change all the” \” to “/ “in the link

Then put the link into Miro-Board

Now when you put the mouse arrow over the link button you can see the link

and go to the folder by following the path you saw in Miro-Board.


It’s time consuming and irritating and we are now looking for a better system from a company

that actually listens to their customers.


A frustrated Gorm Joergensen ☹


PS I don’t understand how this change have made the Miro-Board more secure, as you can see the

link and go to the folder manually, please explain that ?
