URL custom field

Hello everyone,


We have a internal server with a very important folder: \\abserver1\Grups


We would like in Salesforce Account a custom field to link files of this folder, but we don't know how because a URL field has by default http:// 


Thanks in advance

I think instead of a URL field a formula field will do the trick for you. 

This is how it should work.

  • create a custom text field which should hole the [ath you wish to follow 
  • also now create a formula field which uses the above fields value in conjuction with    function refer to example below that should do the trick for you:-

HYPERLINK("https://na4.salesforce.com/"+ urlvalue , "test")


Hope this helps....
