Multiple References to a Document all pointing back to 1 copy. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have the need to place a document within a library and then place "Links" to that document in other libraries.   I know sharepoint offers a "document link" type, but it doesn't seem to work for us (probably a permissions issue on the source document).   How are other companies dealing with this?

  • Hi John,

    You could create a workflow and attach it to that document library.  Inside of that workflow logic have it create links to this new document in other document libraries.  The end-user just needs to start it manually when they want it pushed out.  You can use SharePoint Designer to create the workflow.

    Other than that, you’ll most likely have to look at a custom written solution for this.
